I am a licensed pediatric speech-language pathologist in Columbus, Ohio. I am clinically certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and am board certified through the Ohio Speech and Hearing Professionals Board. I obtained my Masters Degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts.
I have nine years of experience working with the pediatric population in an early intervention and educational setting. I specialize in early language development and communication support for "late talkers," or sometimes called "late talking toddlers."
I provide family-centered care, which focuses on coaching you on ways to incorporate evidence-based strategies into everyday routines, activities, and play, in order to support and promote your child's language and communication development. I am very passionate about helping you find ways to interact with your child in a way that creates change, progress, and growth.
If you are concerned about your child's communication development, or think you may have a "late talker," please reach out for support. Being proactive early on is best!
You do not need a referral from your pediatrician to seek out support from a speech-language pathologist.
