About Us

Growing Healthy Children Therapy Services, Inc. was founded in 2008 by Robyn Chu, an occupational therapist.

What once was a small, home-based business has blossomed into a transdisciplinary team of passionate and dedicated therapists.
Our leadership model is shaped around mentorship, in an effort to teach and inspire one another in hopes of advancing the field for future children. Incredible therapists from across the country have joined our team, helping to transform the lives of thousands of children and their families and giving them hope.

Robyn earned her undergraduate degree in psychology with a biological emphasis from the University of California at Davis.  During that time, she worked with children with special needs in a variety of jobs, as a swim lesson instructor, coach, nanny, and instructional assistant for an applied behavior analysis program for children with autism. Robyn continued on in her education obtaining her master's degree in occupational therapy from Samuel Merritt College in Oakland, CA in 2005. Her work experience includes Shriners Hospital in Sacramento and the El Dorado County Office of Education as an Occupational Therapist and then the Lead Occupational Therapist. Robyn completed the Level 1 and 2 intensive mentorship programs and fellowship through the STAR Institute in Colorado. She has specialized in sensory processing for the last 15 years using the techniques and research taught through the STAR Institute.  She is on the faculty of the STAR Institute and teaches all levels of mentorship in addition to passionately mentoring the team at Growing Healthy Children.
