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.

Interested in scheduling an appointment? Here’s the process.

Step 1

Free Phone Consultation.
Reach out to learn more about my services, discuss your concerns, and determine whether we are a good fit. I will review your insurance information and payment policies at this time and schedule a time to meet.

Step 2

Comprehensive Evaluation.
During our first sessions, I will complete a thorough evaluation and review of records. This process will give me a good picture of you or your child's speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills, and allow me to make an accurate diagnosis.

Step 3

Services Begin. 
We will meet for therapy at a time and frequency that works for your schedule. Home practice activities will occasionally be provided to reinforce skills taught in sessions, such as sound and word practice. This is where the growth happens!
