How can I help your child succeed?
I have worked as a speech pathologist in the Chicago area with children aged 0-15 for the past 6 years in clinical and home-based settings. In addition to being a member of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, I hold a Professional Educator’s License and an Early Intervention Credential. I am trained in Orton Gillingham, PECS Level 1, PROMPT Level 1, and EET. My experience includes work with receptive and expressive language, language delays, reading comprehension, reading and spelling, autism spectrum disorder, childhood apraxia of speech and suspected apraxia of speech, articulation and phonological sound disorders, and pragmatic language. I believe that a positive, trusting clinician-client relationship is the foundation for meaningful and successful treatment. I love finding functional ways to improve a client’s communication at home, in school, and in the community!
My new husband and I spend a lot of time outside with our dog, Russell. We enjoy dining on the patios in Wicker Park and strolling through farmer’s markets. In the cold Chicago winters, you can find us cooking and baking new recipes!
