“What is Grit?”, in her own words:
I am fascinated by the concept of GRIT. Merriam-Webster defines it as “firmness of mind or spirit: unyielding courage in the face of hardship or danger”; renowned author/neuroscientist Angela Duckworth defines it as “passion and perseverance for long-term goals”, so much so that “it organizes and gives meaning to everything you do”. Clinically, I have witnessed GRIT as a resilient and unrelenting force that compels an individual to achieve beyond standard expectations and even push past what some might consider “impossible”. It is that GRIT that keeps me awake at night, the passion to help transform ordinary to extraordinary. My practice is structured around 3 crucial pillars:
- Evidence based concepts
- Meaningful contexts
- Patient alliance
People experience the best outcomes when they can make the connection between the “Why” (purpose) and the “What” (intervention). It is crucial that each client, and in many cases the caregivers/spouse/family, see the value in the concepts that support functional return. It is my aim to help make that connection. The persistent theme that is laced throughout every interaction is to offer opportunities to drive neuroplastic change in functional contexts to make the encounter meaningful. Doing so provides a more substantial imprint for developing new neuro pathways.
The most consistent goal that I hear is “to just be normal again”. “Normal” is quite different for each individual. Clinic simulations are limited and home health often falls short when it comes to addressing the complexities of neurorehabilitation. Tremendous gains can be made in environments that are “normal” to the individual. I love helping problem solve through challenging scenarios that limit access or independence. It is fulfilling to help individuals connect with appropriate resources to fill the gaps between abilities and disabilities. Every victory counts, whether it is getting in/out of bed independently, taking that first step, or returning to work!
Rehabilitation for complex diagnoses involves more than just medical stabilization and returning home. I am a big believer in collaboration. Too many people fall through the cracks of healthcare. This can be due to poor coverage, failed connections, or lack of coordinated efforts. Needs will often change throughout the course of recovery. Individuals may need different equipment, home/work/school/recreational modifications, or opportunities to advance independence. Let’s team up in a focused alliance and fill in those gaps that limit functional return. Tell me your goals and we work together to make it happen!
