I have experience working in a variety of settings including school-based, outpatient clinic, and acute hospital. During my time in the clinical and hospital settings, I gained experience diagnosing and treating aphasia, apraxia, dysarthria, dysphagia, cognitive-communication disorders, and voice disorders in addition to developmental disorders such as articulation/phonology, fluency, voice, and expressive/receptive language. Currently, I am providing school-based speech and language therapy to elementary and early childhood students diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I have a special interest in Augmentative and Alternative Communication, (AAC) for children with minimal verbal communication. I enjoy helping our littlest learners experience the power of communication!
Outside of work, I enjoy being out and about in Chicago. In the summer I love long walks along the lake or 606, attending neighborhood festivals, and experiencing outdoor music. However, in the winter my favorite activities are reading and movie or game nights!

COVID-19 Protocol

We hope you and your family are continuing to stay safe and healthy! We have outlined our protocols for in-person sessions during COVID-19. As you know, the health and safety of our clients and therapists remain our highest priority. As always, please reach out with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work together through these unprecedented times.


Hand Washing:
Upon arrival at your home, your therapist will wash their hands with soap and water and/or use hand sanitizer. We ask that you and your child also wash your hands and/or use hand sanitizer upon your therapist’s arrival.
 
Facemasks:
We are asking our therapists to wear masks upon entering your home and throughout your child’s session. That said, we understand that some children have adverse reactions to seeing adults in masks and will leave it up to you and your therapist to decide your comfort level while still taking safety precautions.
 
We ask that parents and caregivers also follow the guidelines and wear masks when sitting in on sessions. We will not enforce that policy, but we do kindly ask for compliance.
 
As for your child, we realize that masks may not be appropriate for every child so we will not enforce the rule that children over the age of 2 should wear a mask.  However, if your therapist insists that your child wear a mask, then that will be a requirement directly between the two of you. We respect our therapists’ individual comfort levels with safety precautions and ask that you respect them as well.

 

Protocol Acknowledgment and Health Certification:

Before your child’s first in-person session, we are asking clients to submit an acknowledgment of these protocols and a health certification, which you can find here. Thank you again for your cooperation and for helping all of us stay healthy!
