Voice & Swallowing Evaluations & Therapy

We take a holistic approach to evaluating and treating individuals looking for help with communication disorders. We begin by identifying our client's goals and learning style to deliver personalized services. Each speech therapy session combines evidence-based exercises with functional activities (role-play, conversation, presenting, eating/drinking trials) to help our clients learn, practice, and integrate new skills into their daily lives. 

It is our commitment to create a safe space for our speech therapy clients, ensuring they feel heard and understood regarding their goals for Speech therapy. We have a sincere interest in learning about clients’ hobbies, interests, and family so we can incorporate therapy tasks around these topics. Home exercise programs are also provided as a part of our therapy and coaching, allowing clients to continue making progress between sessions.
