I am a CT state licensed and ASHA certified speech pathologist providing clinical services for children, their families, and schools within the Greater New Haven area and throughout CT. My goal is to help children become successful communicators, find their voice, communicate effectively and reach their full potential.From your initial inquiry, through our final session, I will work with you to help figure out what is needed, whether that is an evaluation, therapy, or consultation. I look forward to talking with you as we embark on this journey to build your child’s speech, language and communication skills.

I have extensive experience with the following:Autism Spectrum Disorders
Social Communication/Pragmatic Disorders
Articulation and Phonological Disorders
Childhood Apraxia of Speech and Motor Planning Disorders
Childhood Language Disorders
Language Based Learning Disorders
Limited Early Literacy Skills
Conducting Independent Educational Evaluations (IEEs)

I offer personalized evaluations and consultations for children from three years through high school. Individualized evaluations lead to treatment plans based on your child’s specific profile, strengths and needs, and can be shared with families and teaching teams to support successful outcomes.
Evaluations may address speech, language, pragmatics or other communicative needs, and typically include parent history/intake sessions, record reviews, testing in my office, observation at school, and a feedback session to explain the report and recommendations. I will attend PPTs, and enjoy collaborating with teaching staff who work with the children I see.Therapy
As with evaluations, therapy is individualized; the frequency and type of treatment will be based on your child’s needs. Sessions are 45 minutes in length and most children are seen once weekly, more often if needed.

SPACE (Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions)
This program aims to decrease family accommodation of a child’s anxiety and to develop parental support. I will work with you as a consultant, coach and guide during this 12-week process.

About me

I earned my Bachelor’s Degree at University College London, England, my Master’s Degree in Human Communication from the Institute of Neurology, London University, and then became a Language Disorder Specialist working in school programs in London. On moving to New Haven, I received my ASHA certification and CT licensure while teaching and supervising students in SCSU’s Communication Disorders Dept., and was a school Speech Language Pathologist at a Cheshire Public School Early Intervention Program. Before going into private practice, I joined Yale Child Study Center’s Developmental Disabilities group as part of the Autism team; this is when I developed my deep and continuing interest in this type of neurodiversity. An emphasis on the importance of child development, and developmentally-informed intervention was central, and continues to inform my practice.
