Pebbles Pediatric Therapy is dedicated to improving the lives of its young clients. It is staffed and operated by therapists with many years of pediatric experience who have young children of their own. They are intimately familiar with the diagnosis related issues faced not only by the children but, perhaps most importantly, by their families. As a family and women owned and operated business, Pebbles takes great pride in its commitment to the very best therapeutic treatment for its clients and care for its families.

PEBBLES is a full-service organization, providing therapy in both a clinic setting and, where needed, in the client’s home. Not all children, or their parents, are comfortable in a clinic setting and Pebbles therapists can provide complete therapy at the client’s home or other suitable location.

PEBBLES is a full service clinic and home therapy provider specializing in pediatric clients, ages birth through 18 years. Clinical treatment is provided in a fully equipped facility created just for pediatric care and is conveniently located near major arteries in Northern Virginia. PEBBLES has a dedicated clinic facility where children are free to express themselves as they progress with their therapy. It has age-appropriate equipment for the widest range of pediatric therapy. Pebbles is continually upgrading its clinic to provide its clients with the latest therapeutic equipment.

THE COMPANY: PEBBLES is a division of Stonehouse Staffing, Inc., a women and family-owned company headquartered in Northern Virginia. Stonehouse has been providing pediatric therapy since its inception in February 2008. It continues to expand its staff and services in order to meet the needs of its young clientele.
