O’Brien Wellness, LLC is owned and operated by Andrea O’Brien, MS, OTR/L.

Andrea began her journey into the world of orofacial myofunctional therapy (OMT) while reading the book Breath by James Nestor. She quickly realized the road her son was on would lead to a lifetime of dysfunction if not treated. She found herself being dismissed by healthcare providers so dove in head-first to educate herself on how to support not only her own children, but all children!

Andrea loves to learn! She regularly takes classes and workshops to further support the children she works with. She is slightly obsessed with TOT’s (tongue & lip ties) and the functional impact they have on the body as a whole. 

Andrea graduated from Utica College(University) in 2010 with her Master’s in Occupational Therapy and is board-certified by NBCOT.

Andrea has worked in a variety of settings including pediatrics, addictions, and mental health before transitioning to private practice. Andrea has advanced training in the areas of craniosacral therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I), Yoga Nidra, orofacial myofunctional therapy, neuroplasticity, feeding therapy, and health and wellness coaching.

Andrea bridges her experience with the latest research to provide evidence-based practices to her clients to optimize outcomes.
