Alexa Trolley-Hanson graduated with her master’s degree in Occupational Therapy from the University of New Hampshire in 2004. She went on to work with children and families in Family Centered Early Supports and Services and Outpatient Sensory Integration, building healthy families regardless of illness or disability. Alexa Trolley-Hanson’s work with children and families often focused on addressing mental and behavioral health needs and spurred her to expand her practice into adult behavioral health.
