Welcome

     As a speech language pathologist, I have worked with children of all ages and backgrounds on developing their communication, cognitive, feeding, and/or swallowing skills. My areas of speciality include: feeding and swallowing, language development, articulation and phonology, and social communication and pragmatics. I have worked in inpatient acute care and rehabilitation hospital settings; outpatient therapy and specialty clinics; pre-K, elementary, middle, and high school settings; in the home; and, in private practices. In all settings, I seek to provide individualized care for my clients. I use meaningful and motivating activities and evidence-based practice to support development and change. I am mindful of each child's unique learning style, strengths and weaknesses, as well as his/her personal goals. In addition to direct therapy, I believe family/caregiver education and training are critical to a child's success. Therefore, I work closely with families, teachers, and other care providers to ensure that, together, we are helping each child learn and grow to his/her fullest potential.

Mission

The Growing Space is a safe and nurturing enviornment for children and their families to explore their individual communication and/or feeding challenges, and to develop new skills to become more confident, proficient, and independent thinkers, communicators, and eaters. We work on the skills intensively at the center with the ultimate goal of generalizing them to each child's home, school, and community settings.
