As Speech/Language Pathologists, we help people identify and manage their speech and language challenges.
From a toddler learning to understand their first word to a professional conveying complex ideas to co-workers at a meeting, the acquisition and use of speech and language is complex. Effective communication means that speech and language enhances, and does not interfere with daily living. We help children and adults understand and use their communication strengths to achieve their academic and professional goals.
Speech-Language Pathologists in our practice
My clients range from preschool age children to professional adults who may not realize they have a speech or language challenge to those diagnosed with disorders, such as stuttering, dyslexia, Asperger Syndrome, ADHD, and other language-based learning disorders.
Twenty years of experience has taught me to use a holistic approach that identifies the problem through assessments, taps into special interests, fosters a “growth mindset,” and uses scientifically based interventions.
As a Boston University educated, licensed and certified Speech-Language Pathologist I continue to train to address the needs of my clients. I have participated in private study groups with other professionals, supervised students, engaged in peer mentoring, taken a range of courses, and worked as a LifeMap Coach for the Asperger’s Association of New England.
Other interests include: Camping, listening to classical music, biking, reading, traveling the world, and painting.
