My passion for the field of speech-language pathology has grown with each experience I have had. I absolutely love working with children of all ages.

Throughout my graduate studies, I had the opportunity to practice in a variety of specialized clinics. Specifically, I was part of an Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) Clinic, where I learned and practiced for the entirety of my graduate career. I served children with a variety of speech and language disorders and disabilities, who utilized low-tech and high-tech devices. It was such a joy to see these children express themselves and come to life through the means of AAC.

Upon graduating from San Jose State University, I began working for Chicago Public Schools. I serve children of preschool and elementary ages, with a variety of speech and language needs and/or a variety of disabilities (i.e. ADHD, Downs Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Autism Spectrum Disorders, and more). I have extensive experience with students in general education and special education, with needs ranging from early language delays, fluency (stuttering), apraxia, pragmatics/social language, articulation, AAC, expressive and receptive language delays, and more.

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!
