Bridgette Loiselle, MOT, OTR/L
Bridgette Loiselle started her career in 2010 after receiving a B.S. in Psychology at Virginia Tech and her Master of Occupational Therapy Degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 2012. She has worked in the OT research department at the University of Pittsburgh for years, taking the guided discovery approach from these studies and combining them with expressive art treatments to maximize patient potential in OT sessions. Bridgette continues to explore the relationship between expressive arts and occupational function, finding that creative exploration alongside typical rehabilitation techniques helps patients push past plateaus and reach greater heights of functional capacity while allowing OT practitioners more in-depth views into their patients’ motivations and goals. Bridgette dedicates much of her time on program development utilizing creative arts and guided discovery approaches for patients of all ages, backgrounds, and functional levels.
