What's the story behind the Logo?
Our logo comes from a painting gifted to us. It was found at a market in Brazil in 2007. The scene was painted by siblings; a brother and sister. One sibling was blind and the other hearing impaired. This painting has been a special part of us since 2008. The original hangs in our DC office.
Interested in joining the OTR Team?

OTR clinicians have been leaders in implementing and creating new systems of change in programs to address the unmet needs of clients while supervising treatment teams (clinicians, MA student interns, and direct care staff). In leading treatment teams, Jennifer and Sarah have always made concerted efforts in assessing the team’s needs, advocating for, and creating positive work environments.
OTR offers day, evening, and weekend appointments to be flexible with our client's life schedules. We begin with an intake assessment appointment to decide what best fits your needs. At this time we have 6 clinicians with varied times available. When there are no current appointments available we are more than happy to refer you to another clinician in the area that we have worked closely with or you are welcome to be added to OTR's wait list until a clinician atOTR is available.

We go through our list based on times and days needed and clinician availability in the order we receive inquiries. When a spot opens that meets your needs and you are next on the list we send you an email and/or call to see if you are still interested.***
