Heidi Jo Sovacool, OTR, CLT

Occupational Therapist

My name is Heidi Jo Sovacool and I am a Wisconsin State Licensed Occupational Therapist. I attended St. Catherine University (formerly known as The College of St. Catherine) in St. Paul, MN and graduated in 1996 with a BA in Occupational Therapy.

I have worked in many areas of occupational therapy, including hospital inpatient and outpatient services, nursing home, assisted living, home care, private out-patient clinic and non-profit out-patient clinic. I have provided many complementary consultations and training sessions to local emergency medical providers and schools.

I am now serving clients in my own private clinic. My quest is to help those in need by providing care, treatment, education, home programs, adaptations and resources to the client/caregiver to enable the client to have improved function across all areas of their life.

If I can be of service to you or a loved one, please feel free to call or email to set up a complementary consultation. If during our meeting I discover that I am unable to help you, I’ll provide resources of where you can go to seek help for your situation.
