About Us


We’re here to help!

Some children have delays, conditions or personalities that affect their learning and independence. This keeps them from being able to participate in family outings, follow routines, make friends, and function at school. We are enthusiastic about helping your child be independent with these things, but we aren’t only your child’s therapist–we’re your coach and teammate. We’ll work with you to help your child be successful and give you knowledge and strategies to help you be your best with your child.

Why choose us?

We believe that communication with parents is essential for carryover of what children are learning in therapy. We provide handouts and activities to do at home, and will make time to speak with you to share effective strategies or issues that arise. We really want our sessions to be effective and value your communication and feedback. Emails, texts, and calls are always welcome. We value research-based interventions and strive to find things that fit best for your child and family situation.

New clients

If you are seeking an evaluation or want your child to participate in an anxiety or self-regulation group you are welcome to make an appointment for a free 15-20 minute meet and greet appointment first. This way we can make sure we are a good fit and it gives you a chance to freely discuss your child without your child present (if appropriate). While we prefer an in-person meeting, we can have the appointment over the phone if needed.  We ask that you make an appointment through our online scheduler so you can answer some basic questions to help us prepare for our meeting.

Our hours of service

Hours vary by day as we are working in area schools some days of the week. We offer after school, evening and weekend appointments.

Meet Our Staff

 Alicia KollmarMS, OTR/L    

Hi! I’m the owner of Apex OT. I have worked as an occupational therapist since 2000 and been in North Carolina since 2006. I’m an OT “nerd”, always keeping up with research and learning new ways to support parents and children so they can enjoy typical family activities when there are behavioral, sensory, or motor challenges. I also spend several days each week contracting to area schools. I believe that children will do well when they can. I am inspired by work by Ross Greene and Lynn Lyons.

 Dy’Neshia Hicks

I received my Bachelors Degree in Sports Science with a Pre Physical Therapy concentration in 2018. I plan to obtain my Masters Degree in Occupational Therapy in the near future. I do take joy in small arts and craft projects and using my creativity to help children to be engaged. I enjoy working with children and being able to watch them grow and learn new things while having fun doing it!  


Kristin Rankin, MS, MA, OTR/L

I have provided pediatric occupational therapy services in the home, clinic, preschool, and school environments.  I am passionate about using a strengths-based approach in working with children, as well as keeping up-to-date on current evidence-based interventions to develop fine motor, visual motor, graphic communication, self-care, attention, self-regulation, sensory processing, and social interaction skills. In my free time, I enjoy exploring the Triangle with my husband, son, and two dogs.

 Tori Nojd, OTA/L

I am experienced in the arena of occupational therapy as a practitioner, mother, and client. I enjoy working with children and my experiences have given me a unique perspective and holistic approach to therapy. I am also an OT nerd and enjoy finding creative ways to help children.

 Kim Nolder, Business Manager

I bring a diverse background to Apex OT as the Business Manager. I have a corporate background in Marketing and Customer Experience segments. After my third child was born, I left the corporate world and began teaching Kindergarten Readiness where I learned each child so unique. I have two children that have gone to Occupational Therapy over the years. These different pieces of my background enable me to weave together in a role I am passionate about.
