Care Philosophy

I believe in providing excellent, individualized, and compassionate care to all of my patients. I am dedicated to providing the highest quality of services for children and their families with the most positive results for speech-language and feeding therapy. I believe this is achieved through an open communication style with caregivers and patients being involved in decisions related to their plan of care. Additionally, I think consistent interdisciplinary collaboration is essential in order to provide quality patient centered care.
