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.
Meet our staff
Alicia Kollmar, MS, OTR/L has worked as anoccupational therapist with children since 2000, primarily working in district schools and is theowner of Apex Occupational Therapy. She moved around the country as a travel therapist and settled in North Carolina in 2006. Although she continues to enjoy working in the schools, she was inspired to open her own therapy practice because she felt that she had more to offer children than school-based therapy allowed. Her goals are to help children learn new skills and to work collaboratively with parents so they can find ways to enjoy typical family activities with their child who may have behavioral, sensory, or motor challenges. She is enthusiastic about occupational therapy and enjoys the challenge of creating, researching and learning new ways to help children and families.
Tori Nojd, OTA/L is experienced in the arena of occupational therapy as a practitioner, mother, and client. She enjoys working with children and her experiences have given her a unique perspective and holistic approach to therapy.
How are we different from other therapists?
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.

Our hours of service
Hours are by appointment only and are offered after school, evening, Saturday and Sundays.
If you are seeking an evaluation or want your child to participate in a social skills or self-regulation group please 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.
At the evaluation appointment we usually prefer that parents are not in the room so that we can more easily establish rapport, but parents can sit outside of the room to listen if desired. We will email you the final report within 3 business days. Payment is expected at the time of the evaluation.
