About me

Hello! I'm Alisha. I became a licensed speech-language pathologist (SLP) in 2015. I grew up surrounded by a family that worked in healthcare. My mom is a PT and opened my eyes to the world of rehabilitation. I was introduced to speech-language pathology and became interested when learning that the scope of practice covered so many different aspects. I love that this profession allows you to have variety throughout your day. I have worked in outpatient, inpatient rehab, acute care, skilled nursing, and assisted living settings.

Alisha was my 4.5 yr old daughter’s therapist. She did an amazing job engaging her with games and tasks and gave homework that was doable as a busy parent and kid. Scheduling was easy too.

Alisha has consistently been inventive and adaptable in her approach to making progress with my sister who is not able to speak due to a stroke about a year ago. (My sister) looks forward to our sessions with Alisha and is always up beat after we are finished and have time to practice some of the exercises.

The speech and language pathologist was very nice and had clear goals and instructions. The only issues experienced had to do with the connection on the video call.

Alisha Desai is excellent! Very professional, flexible with a highly energetic toddler, and positive. Her advice has made a significant impact on my son's ability to express himself verbally!
