I have been a certified Speech-Language Pathologist for the past 10 years; in that time I have worked with hundreds of preschool and early elementary-aged children.
My areas of special interest include diagnosis and treatment of complex speech sound disorders (including Childhood Apraxia of Speech, phonological disorders, and articulation delays) and building early phonological awareness skills in young children.
My approach to therapy is play-based, with a focus on helping parents learn ways to embed their childs communication goals into their everyday routines and interactions. I am able to provide services in English or in French.
A graduate of the University of Alberta, I am proud to call Edmonton home! In 2010, I obtained my Masters Degree in Speech-Language Pathology, after completing a Bachelor of Arts, Linguistic Major. I am a certified member of ACSLPA (Alberta College of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists), and belong to SAC (Speech-Language & Audiology Canada). I am a member of Apraxia Kids as well as ASAPP (Albertas Speech-Language Association of Private Practitioners). I hold certification in a number of advanced training programs, including SCERTS, Hanen It Takes Two To Talk, and PECS.
I would love to know more about your family, and how I can best support the young people in your lives. There is no better feeling than seeing a child take their communication skills skyward!
