Provider Type: Occupational Therapist
Location: Stephenville

I’m MiKayla (Mickey) Pfliiger, M.S., OTR/L, CPT and I joined Monkey Mouths in 2023. I earned both my undergraduate and master's degrees from the University of Mary-Bismarck, North Dakota, My prior experience includes private practice, school, and outpatient nonprofit settings.

I have a very individualized, investigative approach to therapeutic intervention. Growing up as a triplet, I was frequently perceived as being a part of a collective unit verses my own individual self. This experience has helped me to emphasize and embrace the unique things that make my patients who they are, and in turn, use these qualities to enhance therapy sessions when possible. In addition, I may not initially have all the answers, but I love collaborating with my families as we investigate together and find what works for each patient!

In my spare time, I like being part of anything active and outdoors -- roping, riding, exercising, working (manual labor), etc. -- with my loved ones. When I "slow down," I enjoy reading self-improvement books, or watching the latest drama or bad reality show!

As an OT since 2019, I have training and specialization in the following:
