Jennifer Salomon, OTD, OTR/L

Occupational Therapist

Jennifer obtained a bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a minor in Child Adolescent & Mental Health Studies from New York University. She continued on to finish her master’s degree in Occupational Therapy at University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Most recently, Jennifer completed her doctoral residency while at the University of Southern California University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Jennifer’s work here focused on individual OT and interdisciplinary consultation, assessment, and treatment for a caseload of children and adolescents with a range of behavioral needs and co-occurring mental health diagnoses. She also had the opportunity to participate interdisciplinary clinics and lead groups with co-therapists from other disciplines.

Jennifer continues to incorporate her passions and interest in mental health and developmental disabilities in her current work through a collaborative, culturally-competent and family-centered approach. She believes that treatment should be tailored to a child’s personal strengths and challenges in order for effective change to be had.

In her free time, Jennifer loves spending time with her loved ones, exploring the outdoors and tending to her plants!
