I have seven years of experience assessing and treating speech, language, and social communication delays and disorders. The focus of my private practice is providing services to toddler and preschool-aged children with communication challenges. I bring a fun, play-based approach to my work and enjoy involving and coaching parents in ways they can help promote language development through play.
