Ellen Johnson, MSc(OT), OT Reg(NS)

Occupational Therapist

Ellen is a registered occupational therapist who was drawn to the field of occupational therapy because it considers the whole person. It recognizes that the way a person functions in the world depends not only on their own abilities, but also on the places where they live and work, the expectations of themselves and others, and on the people around them.

Ellen has lived with a visual impairment since childhood and has had many opportunities to be an advocate for herself and others. She has developed a strong set of problem-solving skills and a broad knowledge of resources that inform her practice as an occupational therapist. She is excited to share her experience with her clients to help support them to live their lives filled with the daily activities that are meaningful to them.

Following her graduation from Dalhousie University in 2010 with a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy, Ellen worked as an occupational therapist with seniors in hospital and long term care settings. In addition to her work at Adaptability Therapy and Consulting, Ellen is a community volunteer and advocate. Sheis registered with the College of Occupational Therapists of Nova Scotia and is a member of the Nova Scotia Society of Occupational Therapists and the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists.
