Lee-Anne Bloom, MS, OTR/L, Clinic Owner
Lee-Anne founded Oak Bloom OT with the goal of helping children succeed and thrive in their everyday lives. She is trained extensively in Sensory Processing Disorders (SPD), ADHD, and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Her work builds on human strengths, using play, creativity, imagination, exploration, and mindful awareness to build resilience and functional skills - all while promoting access and adaptations to make the world more friendly to those with sensory sensitivities.
With focused experience spanning educational, clinical, and governmental environments, she has experienced the positive power of collaboration when crafting “just-right” environments for those with specific sensory preferences. She strives to help humans build skills and resilience surrounding emotional, sensory, and social regulation.
As a parent of a child with sensory differences and realizing sensory differences within herself, she understands neurodiversity in the way that humans perceive sensory input to learn about their environments.
Lee-Anne Bloom is a Bay Area native with her Master’s in Science in Occupational Therapy from San Jose State University, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts and Sociology from San Francisco State. Her master’s project was on treating Sensory Processing Disorders and Autism using Integrated Playgroups. Lee-Anne has worked in a variety of settings - schools, county office (California Children’s Services), Social Group clinic, Communication Works, Early Intervention, and in-patient and out-patient rehabilitation. Lee-Anne has special expertise in self-regulation including emotional, sensory and social regulation, and qualifies as an autism specialist. Some of the specialized therapeutic techniques are listed but not limited to:
Advanced Mentored Clinician in Sensory Processing Disorder through the STAR Institute
SPD Proficiency Certification Level I (SPD Pro I) through the STAR Institute

OT Interns and Volunteers
Oak Bloom OT works with graduate-level interns in their final months of study pre-licensure. At the beginning of an intern’s rotation, we establish rapport with clients and learn about their therapeutic needs. After the first few weeks, the intern takes on more responsibilities, including some treatment when they demonstrate clinical competency. Per the California Board of Occupational Therapy guidelines, the occupational therapist is close by and collaborates on all treatment planning.
Oak Bloom OT also welcomes and works with volunteers and requires a 100 hour minimum at the facility. Please contact email@example.com for more information.
Level II Occupational Therapy student from West Coast University. I have two years of experience working with children with ASD and developmental deficits at school and home settings. I personally always found a lot of joy working with children, but I feel most fulfilled when I see kids progress towards their goals.
Located in the convenient Grand Lake District, Oak Bloom OT has two treatment rooms and a waiting room. Both rooms have suspended swings. One room is the primary motor room with lots of gross motor equipment. We have dubbed that the "sunshine room". The other treatment room, the "galaxy room" is more subdued fine motor room.
We are up on the second floor (without an elevator). We have many learning toys and materials for inspiring creativity, the environment helps create the just-right challenge for building skills and regulating the body and brain.
Occasionally, we will take clients to the park or a local trail to work on building well-rounded skills.
