I am a speech-language pathologist who specializes in treating children and young adults with speech differences as well as children with feeding difficulties. How is your child’s language coming along? Are you concerned he isn’t speaking as much as his little peers in preschool? What about the foods he eats? Are mealtimes stressful because your child wants to eat only one type of food over an over again? I have seen the difference that therapy can make whether your child struggles with their pronunciation or with their feeding. Parents, you are definitely included in therapy and in the carry-over at home as you are the true experts of your child. Many, many studies show that parent concern about their child’s development is a good indicator of an issue. So, take your concerns seriously and reach out to a professional. For you parents living in Silicon Valley, I accept clients for private therapy. Please click below to schedule your fifteen minute phone consultation to see if I am the best professional to help you out. If not, I’ll do my best to find someone who is the right fit for you and your child.
When I’m not in the therapy room, you can find me climbing on rocks with my husband, reading books (fiction or non-fiction), or watching foreign flicks. I also love to cook and right now my two favorite cookbooks are How Not to Die & Plant Power Italia. I’m very passionate about eating a whole-food, plant-based diet, animal advocacy (go Proposition 12 in California to keep animals out of cages), and supporting families in creating a household of happy chatter and removing roadblocks to healthy eating which is what ignited my desire to work with feeding. I love being my own boss and to use my background to best serve my clients. As always, I’m antsy for travel and our next trip will be Boston. Any “must sees” in the city or plant based restaurant recommendations?
