Hello! I am a speech-language pathologist who is passionate about helping clients overcome their speech and language delays and disorders. I believe strongly in involving parents or other caregivers in their child’s treatment and treating each client as a whole person whose speech and language abilities impact them in all areas of daily functioning. I love helping preschoolers and school-age children overcome difficulties with pronunciation, stuttering and language development and watching them become much more confident in the process. I find it gratifying to teach parents how to elicit language from their toddlers who are not yet speaking at age level and I celebrate alongside parents when we hear that first “mama” or “dada” spoken. I also get tremendous satisfaction from helping highly-motivated teenagers and adults address pronunciation difficulties, stuttering, social language and accent concerns.
I am proud to have graduated from McGill University with ample practical experience in treating stuttering, and treating people who stutter has remained a very strong interest of mine over the past 20 years. I am Lidcombe Program trained and this is my preferred treatment approach with preschoolers who stutter. I tailor my stuttering treatment to the specific profiles and needs of school-age children, teenagers and adults.
Please contact me to set up an assessment or therapy sessions for yourself or your child. Let’s get talking!
