“I was going to take a few classes but ended up getting the certification this year.”
“I have seen it helping some people that I am working with now. Peeling off the layers and their life is changing. I want to be able to do that to help people.”
“In Occupational Therapy, we are often presented with a diagnosis or a problem to solve. We do assessments and follow protocols without really delving into why the individual ended up that way to begin with. With Bridging, the understanding of a client’s path, from birth on forward, helps to piece together a treatment plan for the individual.”
“As a pediatric physical therapist, I was blown away with what was happening with Bridging. I think getting certified in Bridging would give other professionals a whole new perspective on why their clients function the way they do and then help them to function better.”
“The irony was that I was going to take a few classes, but ended up finishing the certification this year. This body of work continues to evolve and I want more! I have no plans of saying I’m certified and done.”

Insights from attendees
“This is a hands-on course. Not theoretical and I like that.”
“I have worked as an occupational therapist for 25 years. I love my work but became frustrated at times when my clients would reach plateaus for extended periods of time. I had brought one of my children to The Bridging Institute on the referral from a developmental optometrist and was pleased with the results I had seen. I started to refer some of my clients that I thought would benefit from Bridging®. The changes I saw in my clients were remarkable. I was so impressed with the results that I began attending some of the Bridging® sessions with my clients and knew I had to learn the technique myself. I completed the certification course in two years and now I help Cara teach it to other professionals.”
