About Danielle Feerst, OTR/L
I am a Christian Life and Career Coach, and an Occupational Therapist, specializing in relational thinking and our connection to God, self, and others as a way to navigate the workplace, current culture, and social relationships.. My clinical focus is on ASD and ADHD.
I provide career coaching (individualized 1:1 and groups) and Occupational Therapy services for neurodivergent teens and young adults. My coaching program is entirely accessible digitally and referred to by the Vanderbilt Frist Center for Autism and Innovation.
I graduated from Tufts University with a Master’s in Occupational Therapy and an interest in Autism/ADHD. My experience in outpatient pediatrics revealed a gap in services for teens and young adults. Challenges such as executive functioning delays or communication difficulties, which often accompany ASD and ADHD, can hinder finding a stable and exciting career. iElevate was formed to inspire, uplift, and transform young adults to positively impact the world. My clients inspire me all the time, and through our work together, I continually grow and learn new things about myself.
Currently, I am living in Charleston, South Carolina and enjoy sailing, yoga, and hiking in addition to research and working with clients as an OT.
In 2023, I received recognition for my program from the South Carolina Occupational Therapy Association. I have also corresponded with programs related to job training and independence for neurodivergent individuals, including the Simons Foundation, the Dan Marino Foundation, Mentra, and the Alyssa Burnett Center in Seattle, Washington.
