With more than two decades of combined experience, Annie and Sam have worked with many children and adults with various communication concerns. Communication and connection are the top priorities at the practice. They are able to determine the root causes of why communication is not happening as expected and create a targeted plan for improvement. Therapy at our practice is fun and effective, following the child’s interests as much as possible. This results in the maximum amount of learning and generalization. We believe in involving families in the therapy and invite parents to join us in working with their children. We are a neurodiversity-affirming practice with a strong autism program, as well as offering family-centered ABA recovery.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING ...
Our lives have been profoundly changed for the better upon meeting and working with Anne. I got the distinct sense that she truly cared about children and was passionate about working with them. She addressed all of my concerns and pointed us in the right direction to optimize services our daughter would need. She worked with the recommendations provided by our developmental pediatrician and created a curriculum to improve our daughter's speech delay that each member of the household could perform. In just 3 months time, our daughter's speech dramatically improved and she became much more vocal and verbally interactive. Now, just barely 6 months after our first meeting with Annie, our daughter won't stop talking!
We are forever grateful to Annie for unlocking the key to our daughter's speech. We are confident that as we continue to utilize the tools she's given us, our daughter's speech delay will be a distant memory in the near future!
My son needed to work with a Speech Therapist to help him practice conversations with his peers and responses to verbal directions. These skills were incredibly difficult for him due to a diagnosed Verbal Processing Delay. He became easily frustrated because he could not process verbal directions or conversations quickly. He did not interact with his peers or teachers. When Annie came to work with him, she was so patient and he was always excited to work with her! She was able to help him build confidence when conversing with others, and she modeled appropriate conversational interactions for him to practice.
Annie always looked out for his best interest and made sure he got exactly what he needed to be successful. He went from being a very shy and unhappy Preschooler to a confident 2nd Grader who loves to talk to others! Annie was a blessing to our family and especially to our son.
