Stephanie (Steph), thrives off of celebrating her clients’ achievements and celebrating their progress as they improve their ability to communicate and interact with the world around them. She finds endless joy in developing engaging, effective and sometimes silly therapy sessions, where everyone has at least one opportunity to laugh. Consistent, transparent communication with caregivers is the best way to describe Steph’s style of engagement with her clients’ support network. She understands and respects the active and necessary role of the caregiver, and is always eager to establish a strong rapport from the beginning.
In 2015, Steph earned her Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences & Disorders from the Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions. She is a certified member of the American Speech & Hearing Association (ASHA), and has received specialized training in motor speech disorders (LSVT/LOUD and CAS treatment) as well as sensory-based feeding therapy (SOS Approach to Feeding).
Steph’s previous pediatric experience includes private practice, public schools and medical outpatient facilities. Her therapeutic expertise includes a diverse population represented by feeding disorders, fluency disorders, expressive/receptive language delays, motor speech disorders (e.g., Childhood Apraxia of Speech) and articulation/phonology disorders.
Steph currently resides in Newtonville, and can be found taking walks with her dog, spending time in Vermont with her family, or trying out a new playground with her son and husband.
