Please reach out with any additional questions

  • What is Speech-Language Therapy?
    Speech-language therapy focuses on assessing, diagnosing, and treating communication disorders and difficulties. It is designed to help infants, toddlers, and older children who face challenges in areas such as speech production, language comprehension, expressive language skills, social communication, and feeding/swallowing. Pediatric SLPs work closely with children and their families to develop personalized treatment plans that address the unique needs and goals of each child.
  • Do you accept insurance?
    Yes. I accept Blue Cross Blue Shield and Health Alliance. While I am not directly in network with Aetna, I work with them frequently and they often provide coverage.
  • Do you have self-pay options available?
    Yes, self-pay options are available. Please inquire to learn more about my rates.
  • What disorders do you treat?
    I specialize in pediatric stuttering, speech sound disorders (articulation challenges, apraxia, phonological disorders), late talkers, expressive/receptive language disorders, and social-pragmatic language.
  • What is play based therapy?
    Play-based speech therapy is an approach that integrates play activities and techniques to engage children in therapy sessions. Research shows that play-based interventions engage and motivate children, leading to improved language development. All of my speech therapy sessions incorporate age appropriate play to target speech and language goals.
  • What is the difference between speech and language?
    Speech refers to the physical production of sounds and the motor planning involved in speaking (for example, the production of a specific sound such as "l" or "r"). Language encompasses a broader system of communication, including the use and understanding of words, sentences, and conversation.
  • Should parents/guardians attend the session?
    Yes, parents and guardians are highly encouraged to actively participate in each therapy session. Speech-language therapy is most successful when skills are practiced outside of the session with parent/guardian support.
