I am accepting new clients for individual therapy. I offer home visits but can also see clients at after school programs, libraries, or other locations in the San Jose/Santa Clara area.
I have experience and training in the following areas:
Pediatric Speech & Language Delays
I have worked with children and families birth to three years of age with speech and language delays whatever the cause, known or unknown. I am a play-based therapist and strongly believe in positive interactions and family involvement to promote speech and language development. I have worked primarily with Spanish speaking families and have the knowledge to work with families who are multilingual.
Child & Adolescent Speech & Language Delays
Whether your child is struggling with stuttering, comprehension (written or oral) or social communication, I have experience in working with children and teenagers with a variety of language or speech challenges to strengthen their abilities to communicate at home and in school.
I have formal training in orofacial myofunctional disorders. What’s that, you may ask? Many children (and adults) have learned incorrect patterns of tongue positioning that can affect not only their speech but their swallowing and breathing patterns. Many children who present with forward tongue posture often have difficulties with forward sounds, such as the “s.” Orofacial myofunctional therapy targets the resting posture of the tongue so that it’s optimal for speech, swallowing, and breathing. I always encourage and refer to other professionals in this area as this is a team effort!
