Who We Are
Who we are is strongly tied to the passion of our executive director, Karen Brelje. Karen is a registered nurse and the mother of four adopted children, three with special needs. Neurotherapeutic Pediatric Therapies, Inc. began after experiencing frustration with existing occupational and physical therapy services in the area. At the time, many clinics were either run by medical professionals who were not family centered and often weren’t interested in trying cutting-edge therapies or family friendly clinics run by parents, but without the depth of staff or therapy modalities to meet her children’s various needs.

We have now been serving the community for over 30 years and have grown to include 5 clinics throughout the greater Portland area and Southern Oregon, providing specialized occupational and physical therapy services to over 200 families each week. We look forward to continuing to serve all of our families with the best in therapy services and to expanding our ability to serve more and more uninsured and under-insured kids who so desperately need our services.
