Taunia Clouthier MSc OT Reg. (ON) – Owner

Taunia Clouthier is the founder of FUNctional therapy. She graduated with her Masters in Occupational Therapy from Queens University in 2009 and has since been a member of good standing with the College of Occupational Therapists of Ontario.

Taunia brings 9 years of experience, all of which has been working with the School Health Support OT Services in Renfrew County, where she assumes a consultative role in supporting children, parents and staff within the school environment. The skills and knowledge that she has gained over the years has inspired her to create a company in which she can further share her knowledge and passions through direct services and workshops. She is creating professional development opportunities for educators and workshops for parents to help them better understand how to assist their children in becoming successful students. She is very passionate about providing education and believes it is one of the keys to successful growth and development in children.

Taunia grew up in Sault Ste. Marie and moved to Renfrew County in 2009 where she has established roots in both her professional and personal life. She married in 2013 and has 2 wonderful, energetic young boys. Being both a parent and a pediatric healthcare professional has added a further dimension of empathy, understanding and value to her practice.
