About Our Director - Krista Debler

Krista Debler, OTR/L, is the Owner and Director of Out East Therapy of NY. She is a registered occupational therapist who first earned her degree in Medical Rehabilitation at Springfield College, MA in 1991. She went on to study Occupational Therapy as part of the graduate program at the University of Southern California.

In addition to her pediatric experience, Krista has worked extensively with adults in a neuro-rehabilitation setting. She also served as a burn therapist at the Bothin Burn Center in San Francisco.

Krista has completed the Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT) certification course, has received advanced training in sensory integration and has been certified by Sensory Integration International to administer the Sensory Integration and Practice Test (SIPT).
