Service introduction

When families come to me, kids and parents alike are anxious and frustrated. No one is having much fun. My unique process offers speech therapy for toddlers and a parent coaching component. And when we combine these two elements, kids make faster progress with their communication and everyone feels better sooner.

Late Talking Protocol
We'll decrease meltdowns, decrease frustration and increase communication and fun! This package includes: 8 weeks of daily, direct, 10-minute enrichment sessions delivered via Zoom with your toddler to get them beginning to imitate and use words. 8 weeks of weekly, 30-minute play sessions with a "Time In coach in your ear" to boost your confidence in playing on the floor with your child. 8 weeks of weekly 45-minute parent coaching sessions (couples or individuals) to dive into parenting concerns and work through parenting differences.

Direct Speech Therapy
Online, individualized, direct speech therapy for young children (ages birth to 5) delivered in flexible intervals (once per week, or multiple times per week) tailored to the needs of your child. We'll create goals and work through them in a systematic and fun way!
USD Per hour
Parent Coaching
Raising a child with special needs comes with a set of unique challenges. What therapies does my child need? How often? What should we work on first? Why is my child so hard to parent? How can my parenting partner and I get on the same page? Why does my child behave this way? We'll dive into these questions and more during parenting coaching and get at the root of why parenting feels so hard. You'll come away with more understanding and more peace about your parenting journey than you thought possible. Six 45-minute sessions with potential for continuation.
