Ella Fu

Occupational Therapist
Brief info

I grew up in Toronto, Canada, where I obtained both my Bachelors degree and my Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy at the University of Toronto. A few years ago, I decided to venture into a new journey and move across North America to Indiana. Since graduation, I have had the privilege of being able to follow my passion and work with children and their families to impact their lives in a positive way.

I have spent the last 3+ years working with kids of varying cultural and socio-economic backgrounds with diverse medical histories, and across all age groups. One of my favorite things is being able to learn about the unique strengths and interests each child has and bring that into my therapeutic approach. I am a strong believer that while therapy may be hard at times, that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun! I also take a very family-centered approach, as I believe a huge part of success in therapy is parent communication and involvement.

I am always open to feedback and am committed to advancing my professional knowledge by seeking out continuing education opportunities and staying current with evidence-based, best-practice guidelines. This is how I ensure that I provide the best therapy to all my families. I have completed professional development courses in handwriting, early childhood development, and sensory integration. Currently, I am taking a certified Autism Spectrum Disorder training course, which will allow me to proudly call myself a Certified Autism Professional!

When I’m not working, I spend most of the time with my fiance and our two fur babies. You will find me outdoors on a hike, at HomeGoods, or at the Hamilton County Humane Society where I volunteer. I am always down for an adventure and I look forward to embarking on a new journey with you!
