Meet Megan DeLeon & Jodie Comerford: Occupational Therapists

Welcome Megan DeLeon and Jodie Comerford to the OT Works! team.  They are graduates of the Occupational Therapy program at the University of British Columbia.  Megan and Jodie work primarily with ICBC clients, individuals with 3rd party health coverage and privately-paying customers.  They guide clients with various diagnoses in managing their daily activities at home, work and in the community.  They help their clients manage their pain and anxiety to improve their independent functioning.

Megan journeys alongside her clients as they try out strategies to achieve their greatest potential.  She brings a wealth of knowledge regarding mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI) and concussions due to her previous experience working in the Head Injury Assessment and Treatment Services Program.  She enjoys working one-on-one with her clients to foster both mental and physical wellbeing.  Megan serves clients in the Metro Vancouver region from Vancouver, Richmond and Delta to Langley and Maple Ridge.

Jodie emphasizes the importance of the biopsychosocial approach to fully understand all the factors that affect a person’s health.  She has formerly worked with adults with development disabilities and therefore has a well-structured approach to behaviour modification, skill development and goal attainment.   Jodie also serves clients in the Metro Vancouver region from Vancouver, Richmond and Delta to Langley and Maple Ridge.

Like all of our therapists, Megan and Jodie are full registrants and in good standing with the College of Occupational Therapists of British Columbia (COTBC).

OT and ICBC Rehab: Aman’s Positivity

As a busy, young woman, Aman struggled when soft-tissue injuries a motor vehicle accident (MVA) decreased her ability to work and play.  She experienced back pain and mood fluctuations that made it difficult to enjoy the things she used to love like cooking and yoga.  With goal-oriented occupational therapy, Aman increased her endurance and transformed her outlook on life.

  • Activation

Introducing Aman

Age: 27

Occupation: Lab Technician and Aesthetician

Injuries:  Soft tissue injuries to the back, neck and shoulder; fluctuations in mood

How OT Helped

Aman enjoys cooking, yoga and attending the gym.  When soft tissue injuries interrupted her ability to be active, she also struggled with her mood and motivation.  At the time that she met Jaclyn Forsythe (OT), she wasn’t convinced that occupational therapy would help her return to the activities she loved.

Jaclyn, equipped with her Masters’ education and variety of experience, recognized that Aman could benefit from OT.  Together, they set well-structure goals that were realistic and achievable.  She also provided Aman with tools and techniques to manage her pain effectively so that she could reconnect with the activities she enjoyed before the accident.  With Melissa’s support, Aman fostered a more positive outlook on life and could manage her injuries effectively.

 “It was my first time working with an occupational therapist and I have to say I had a very good experience. I didn’t think I needed one in the first place, but now having experience the service I can see how it has helped me with my injury and rehab. Both mentally and physically.”
