For Children
Developmental Delay
If your child has a developmental delay that is affecting his or her ability to participate in play, school, or home or community activities, we can help! If your child has a sensory processing disorder, we can help! There are many strategies to overcome the limitations on performance of a child with a developmental delay or a sensory processing disorder.
Interactive Metronome
This is a specific neuro-modulation rehab modality that our therapists are certified to administer. Interactive Metronome (IM) is a well-researched (evidence-based) therapy that may benefit you. For more information, visit https://www.interactivemetronome.com


For Adults
Find Yourself
Upward Call wants to help you find yourself, be yourself, and separate from unhealthy (toxic) relationships. Do you lose yourself in others? Is your life muted so other people’s lives are accentuated? Does your empathic personality style seem to get attached to all the wrong people? Your brain may be “trauma bonded” to abusers in your life and you do not have to stay stuck. We are here to help you through the journey of self-awareness and self-love. You only get this one life and we want to help you make it count!
Mental Toughness Training
Sometimes life circumstances are overwhelming and we wish we had the mental toughness to be resilient enough to weather the emotional storms. Upward Call is here to help!







For Families
Family Game Night
Allow one of our therapists to come to your home and facilitate positive family interactions through a customized GAME NIGHT! We recommend four one- hour sessions for your family, one session per week for four continuous weeks. This is a great investment!











12 Step Recovery Guidance
Are you or a loved one dealing with addiction and the cascade of social, emotional, relational, and financial problems related to addiction? Upward Call can help you! We know the stress and the drama involved in the day by day walk toward sober living. Allow us to partner with you and offer brain, mind, and behavior modification interventions. Your (or your loved one’s) recovery is important and life-long sobriety and healthy living is possible. We are well-versed in 12-step language and want to apply our neuro-rehab techniques to facilitate faster, and more sustainable, recovery to those dealing with addiction. We are also here to help the loved ones of the recovering alcoholic or addict. You are often forgotten in the throes of addiction. We want to help you get and stay strong. This is a long journey and you will need support.
Anger Management
Upward Call Rehabilitation, Inc. has three tiers of anger management programming: (a) 4-week (b) 6-week or (c) 8-week. Each week includes one or two face-to-face meetings (~60 minutes) with follow-up home exercises and an optional mid-week phone call. Often the root issue of any number of behavioral problems is uncontrolled anger stemming from unprocessed emotions. Anger does not have to ruin your life. There are ways to change the brain’s response to triggers. Let our experts help you get a grip on anger.
Wellness Retreats
Upward Call is in the process of buying property so we will have facilities to host retreats. If you are interested in having Upward Call run a retreat for you at a location of your choosing (before we establish facilities of our own), please let us know! We can come to you and run the retreat for you!

MEET KATIE YANCOSEK

PhD, OTR/L, CHT

I am Katie, creator and owner of Upward Call.

My interests are neuroscience, spirituality, and people. These three topics keep me excited about life!

Upward Call is my passionate pursuit of helping others effectively achieve lasting recovery from any number of difficulties, such as brain injury, emotional dysregulation following trauma, dementia, sensory processing disorders, complex grief, co-dependency, lack of emotional control, sleep difficulties, etc.

Upward Call exists to help you find lasting solutions to long-standing behavioral problems. 

I am fascinated with people’s stories and will work tirelessly to find the root of the problem and to customize a multi-modal solution. Very rarely have I seen a patient who has a single problem with a single cause that responds to a single therapy solution. Humans are just way more complex than that! 

With over twenty years of clinical rehabilitation and research experience in the United States Army, I want to use every “trick of the trade” I learned along my journey to help you get better. Some therapists want you to feel better; I want you to BE BETTER! 

There are often many solutions to our problems, and at the root of most, is an unaddressed neurological and/or spiritual issue and/or relational issue.

I would love to talk with you and see how I can help you today!
