Meet the Owner

Samantha Stiles MS, OTR/L
(Formerly Samantha Stern)


Occupational Therapist

As a pediatric therapist I know what it takes to really address feeding, sensory, and emotional challenges in children. I'm talking the kind of exponential growth that changes the course of lives. But this type of transformation requires time, parent involvement, and extra guidance... 


All of which does not easily fit into the standard therapy session with insurance restrictions.


THIS is where Empower Kids Therapy was born.


Since seeing the possibilities when more support is provided, I'm no longer settling for less than what children need to get results. At Empower Kids Therapy we offer a different model of therapy. One that includes extra support, parent partnership, and the therapeutic tools to create solid improvement in your every day life that creates joyful families.

Now, a little more about me...


I received my Master of Occupational Therapy degree from Ithaca College in New York. I have worked as a pediatric occupational therapist for the past 11 years in a variety of settings including outpatient pediatrics, private/public schools, early intervention, and at a pediatric in-patient rehabilitation hospital serving the infant unit in New York.


I have continuously expanded my knowledge in the areas of pediatrics and sensory integration therapy to provide the best resources to families.  Below is a list of the extensive training and education I have pursued, including but not limited to:

Sensory Integration and Praxis Test (SIPT) Certified _ MNRI Reflex Integration Dynamic and

My hobbies include crafting, playing the Villanous board games, trying new coffee shops and breweries, and spending my time exploring all the Disney parks have to offer.

I'm so excited to meet you,
