About me

Hello! I'm Amanita. I became a certified speech-language pathologist (SLP) in 2010 (my second career!), and since then I have worked with individuals across the lifespan on a variety of communication and swallowing needs, in both a school and a hospital. I aspire to provide a nonjudgmental environment in which clients can understand and achieve their goals for therapy. Tailoring my approach to each client helps them achieve self-expression that feels natural and authentic to them, and allows them to connect with others with the greatest ease possible. I believe that it is important for each individual to have a voice, and that the ability to share our experiences with others is the fundamental purpose of speech and language. My prior background includes theater training. I love to sing and play guitar, and I am an avid reader. I have received professional training in Lee Silverman Voice Therapy and the Floortime/DIR model for therapy, and I have been awarded twice by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) for my commitment to continuing education.

I can say without a doubt that Amanita changed my life for the better and I now feel much more comfortable and confident with talking in my daily life. Due to unpleasant experiences in the past with speech therapists growing up, I was initially hesitant when reaching out to Expressable to schedule a consult as an adult in my late twenties, but Amanita was very helpful even from that first appointment in recognizing my lateral lisp and devising ways to help me correct it. She was super patient and friendly, always provided positive feedback as well as constructive criticism, and adapted exercises to meet my needs. I can't thank her enough for the tremendous impact she's had in improving my life.
