About Lea Occupational Therapy

“Hi, my name is Chantel Bennett, I am an Occupational Therapist. I work with people that struggle to do their day to day functional activities due to illness or injury, people that can’t do what they want to do and would like improve their health and independence. 

What separates my services from others is that I work with people on their goals in their own home or in the community and because of this my clients are able to improve their functional abilities to do what they want, where they want, and how they want.”
