Rebecca Berg, OTR/L, IMH-E

Infant Mental Health Occupational Therapist, Cooper House

Rebecca’s professional home is Cooper House, an infant mental health practice in Seattle, WA, where occupational therapists and mental health therapists work in close collaboration and transdisciplinary practice to serve children 0-5 and their families. Rebecca serves the team in the role of Integrated Clinical Model Lead, synthesizing theory into practice and furthering the development of this model. Her work is characterized by her deep curiosity about the experience of others and commitment to close partnership with caregivers to understand the many moving parts of development within the caregiver/child relationship, their family system, and the community in which they live. In additional to her clinical work, Rebecca is drawn to individual and organization-level advocacy for trauma-informed, developmentally minded, relationship-based practices. She is a writer and an active member of several professional groups and committees. Rebecca continues to enjoy teaching; in recent years, she has taught occupational therapy students, presented for WOTA state conferences and Profectum’s national conferences and training program, and presents locally on topics related to the development of play and relationship-based, developmentally minded work for parents, early childhood educators, and other professionals. Rebecca holds a master’s degree in Occupational Therapy from NYU and is currently enrolled in the Napa Infant-Parent Mental Health Fellowship.
