I am a board certified licensed speech-language therapist, practicing in Santa Monica, California. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Speech and Hearing Sciences at the University of California at Santa Barbara, and attended Boston University where I earned a Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology. My son, Ryan, was born in 2000.
Since 1995 I have worked with children and adults in schools, camps, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, nursing homes, private homes and outpatient facilities. I maintain my continuing education in child development, as I strongly believe in the importance of stimulating and enriching children’s minds beginning at birth.
In addition to my Therapy sessions, I offer a specialized parent training workshop entitled Baby’s Brighter Connections and I conduct parent Presentations and Speech and Language Screenings at preschools in the West Los Angeles area. These programs are also valuable for teacher training sessions, daycare providers, nannies, and grandparents.
