Nice to Meet You

Hi! We are Nicole and Damon Simmons. We met at work in Chicago in 2010 and have been partners in life and business ever since. We moved from Chicago to Missoula at the end of 2018. With over 20 years combined of pediatric therapy experience, we are wholeheartedly dedicated to improving the lives of children and their families. As therapists in separate but related fields, we offer a collaborative team-based approach, and a balanced and complementary perspective for each of our clients. And as parents together of two small children, we can relate to the joys and challenges that come along with parenthood.

Damon Simmons, OTR/L

I received a degree in occupational therapy from Winston-State University in North Carolina in 2003. Since then, it’s been my passion to help children lead happier and more functional lives. I’ve worked in private practice and private schools, as well as creating and directing therapy programming at therapeutic day schools. I use a combination of treatment approaches, including The Listening Program, Zones of Regulation, Kawar Vestibular-Ocular Protocol (Astronaut Protocol), DIR Floortime, sensory processing interventions, and techniques to promote self-regulation and desentization. I pride myself on helping to find the “just right challenge” for each child, and to safely and compassionately push their limits to help them reach their potential. I’m excited to be a part of the Missoula community.

Nicole Simmons, MS CCC-SLP

I was born and raised here in beautiful Missoula, MT. After leaving to explore the world and develop my career, I’m overjoyed to be back to raise my family here. I received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Montana in communication studies, and a master’s degree from Northwestern University in 2014 in communication sciences and disorders. I hold post-graduate certifications in feeding therapy and complex feeding issues, and I am a certified DIR/Floortime provider through ICDL. I have experience helping children with a variety of speech, language, and feeding disorders in public and private schools, client homes, medical facilities, and in private practice.
