Sunrise Therapies

Where Neurodivergent Individuals Rise and Shine

At SUNRISE, they are on a mission to include ALL individuals in our world and make sure they are seen as valuable. They strive to support all parents and caregivers to feel connected with their child, teen, or adult. EVERYONE deserves to have the ability to successfully engage in what they enjoy doing without stigma, judgment, or barrier. They want to encourage you to be better than you were yesterday, to reclaim your power back from a broken healthcare and education system, and to support our community in rising up as our best individual selves, to make our world a better place, together.

About the CEO and Founder, Erin Clarelli

As an occupational therapist with 8 years of experience, her approach is rooted in respect, dignity, and kindness for all individuals. Drawing from my background in teaching inclusive gymnastics to neurodivergent individuals, she understands the importance of listening to parents and being actively involved in her work. Continuously learning about sensory processing and the interconnectedness of our heart, brain, and body informs her practice, focusing on supporting families in their journey toward personal excellence and well-being through authentic connection and growth.

Personal hobbies: reading, yoga, weight lifting, hiking, meditation, traveling, being outdoors, organizing, spending time with animals, friends and family.
