Janet Klassen, B.Comm, M.OT

Janet has a passion for a client centered approach to assist clients to achieve full participation in meaningful activities including personal care, leisure and employment. She has an extensive travel background, which enables her to be culturally sensitive to clients needs.Janet has worked with and helped client’s with Musculoskeletal/orthopaedic injuries, Chronic Pain, Mental health (anxiety, depression), Concussion / traumatic brain injury, and Mixed diagnoses to participate in meaningful activities, including return to work.

Occupational therapy called out to Janet who previously worked as a designer in the fashion industry. She is an avid world traveler and explorer, and she is particularly grateful for her time in Annapurna in Nepal. The one thing she is powerless to resist is salt-and-vinegar chips.
