Owner, Speech-Language Pathologist

Reading & Dyslexia Specialist

I am a speech-language pathologist with 36 years of clinical experience and a doctorate in Speech-Language Pathology & Reading Education. On my journey to becoming a reading and writing specialist, I have trained in a variety of research-based programs such as Orton-Gillingham, Reading with TLC, Brain Frames, EmPOWER for Writing, and Unlocking Sentences (Vivido Learning). I use elements of each program to help my clients reach their full potential.


As The Language Literacy Doctor, I holistically support speech, language, and literacy development for children of all ages. Whether a child struggles with making speech sounds, spelling words, or understanding what they read at school, I can offer strategies and tools to help them succeed.

Literacy & Dyslexia Intervention

Therapy for dyslexia, reading, and writing takes a "root-cause" approach to focus intervention on the skills that will lead to the greatest success.

Speech & Language Therapy

I work with children, teens, and adults with language-based learning disabilities and speech sound disorders. 

Dyslexia Advocacy & Parent Consulting
