New Patients - Children and Adults:

My commitment to your unique needs begins with a personalized evaluation, an essential step in understanding your goals and challenges. Specializing in working with children and adults experiencing a myriad of specific communication difficulties, listen to your concerns, discuss your goals, and review medical and background history. Then I conduct a thorough evaluation, which may take one or more sessions, which lays the foundation for a tailored treatment plan.


Individualized Evaluation: I emphasize a detailed evaluation process, ensuring that every aspect of your communication needs are understood. By sitting down with me, I establish a roadmap that caters to your specific requirements.

Targeted Strategies: Tailoring my approach to your needs, age, goals and preferences, I employ specialized strategies that address both verbal and non-verbal communication. Every session is crafted to be engaging, ensuring a positive and constructive experience.

Collaborative Partnership: At Speech Matters, I believe in forging a partnership between the therapy team, the individual, and their family. Through open discussions and personalized plans, we collaboratively work towards your communication goals.

Resources for New Clients

I measure the strengths and challenges of a person’s ability to communicate effectively using informal observations and formal tests. As a new client, you may have questions about the evaluation process and subsequent treatment. Read more about what the process entails before your first visit.
Speech Matters is a fee-for-service private practice and does not submit directly to insurance companies for reimbursement. However, I do provide clients with documentation needed to submit claims for reimbursement.
