My name is Eva Heller and I am a therapist and the owner of Fired Up. Born to Czech immigrants, I was raised in a home where my parents would help other families from other walks of life have a new safe start here in the US. That's were my love of helping and being around people began. Art is something that has always been a part of me and my favorite past time growing up. Now as a Mom of twin boys, I encourage my children to express themselves with art. Theres a calming effect when you get your creative juices flowing. I went to school for Occupational Therapy and feel best when I'm being creative & helping others. I also volunteer helping kids and teens that have had a traumatic loss in their lives. People, Art, & Therapy is how this business began. It's what I love.
Art helps support & encourage people to express feelings, enhance social skills & cognitive functioning. It helps resolve frustration, fosters coping skills, & increases the use of sensory motor skills including hand-eye coordination & sensory stimulation.
As a therapist, my goal is to accommodate everyone. We have tabletop easels & weighted lap pads for individuals with sensory processing disorders. Tabletop easels help improve upper extremity positioning and fine motor control, while weighted lap pads create a calming effect. Individuals with visual deficits may benefit from our magnification devices. Clients that have tremors may prefer to use our weighted paintbrushes and clients that have arthritis or carpal tunnel may find it easier to use our built up paint brushes.
