  • I think I have concerns. When should I be reaching out to a speech pathologist?
    We have all done it. Researched developmental milestone charts, potential diagnoses, and read endless blogs and comment threads at 3am, falling deeper and deeper into holes of anxiety. As a mother, I have done it more times than I am willing to admit. But as a specialist in speech and language development, I encourage you to reach out to a qualified professional and just ask your questions. I am a firm believer in, if your gut is sending you a signal go ahead and uncover that stone. I am here to grab your hand and carry this load with you. And if your questions or concerns fall outside of my areas of expertise, I have a network of referral sources to put you in contact with that I would (and have!) trust my own family and friends with. If you feel like your baby isn’t babbling enough, your young toddler doesn’t have as many words as you think they should, your child doesn’t “play” like other kids, or you’re noticing some things in your family member’s speech or language that makes you think for an extra second, let’s have a phone conversation. Let’s turn that “Wait and see!” into “Let’s just see”. All therapy plans are uniquely tailored to each patient, and we will begin carving out your next steps from that first, complementary phone consultation.
  • What are some areas you focus on?
    I identify and treat a wide range of speech and language diagnoses across all ages including articulation (sound production), phonology (sound patterns), receptive and expressive language (building vocabulary and sentence structure), language processing skills (how the brain interprets, stores, retrieves, and sends signals to use language), voice (voice modification therapy), pragmatics (social language use), and AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) programming and implementation.
  • Why choose private therapy?
    Did your child not “qualify” for public services within your county or school, but you still have concerns that are not being addressed? Did your family member max out their session allotment post-stroke, and you need to supplement services? I began my private practice for a myriad of reasons, but the biggest is in private therapy, you and I get to map out therapy together without the boundaries that insurance or school systems place upon us. I will create a therapy plan with goals and recommendations based solely on the needs of my patient, and we will see one another as frequently as necessary. We will be meeting individually, and sessions range from 20-60 minutes in length depending on their needs.
  • Where do you treat?
    Face to face consultations, evaluations, and therapy sessions can be rendered at my Pelham office. All services can also be provided virtually. Initial phone consults are available, and are always complementary.
  • Do you take insurance?
    I do not accept insurance, but I will provide the patient and/or family with a Superbill that can be submitted to insurance towards your out-of-network deductible for potential reimbursement. I strongly encourage you to become familiar with your out-of-network coverage, and inquire about reimbursement rates!
