About me

Hello! My name is Diahn (pronounced Deeon). As a licensed and certified speech language pathologist (SLP) with 30+ years of experience, my journey as an SLP started in an unexpected way. During my high school years, my best friend experienced a brainstem stroke, resulting in unilateral paralysis and laryngectomy. After witnessing her communication challenges, unbeknownst to me at that time, the seed for my speech pathology career was planted. In 1991, I obtained my Master of Science degree at James Madison University and my SLP journey began. To date, my experience includes, but is not limited to, treating early language delays, autism, apraxia of speech, articulation disorders, stuttering, and adults with professional communication needs. I enjoy working with all ages and strive to keep my clients' interests in the forefront of therapy. From play-based activities for little ones, science experiments with older children, to career communication scenarios with adults, my aim is to help each client achieve their personal goals within a fun and motivating therapy environment.

Dogs, the beach and being in nature are definite ways to get me smiling. I adore being swept away while writing about and taking photos of dogs and the coast! My husband, two pups and I love to travel and we always look forward to hooking up our trailer for true camping relaxation.

The speech therapist is very helpful, friendly, understanding, and knowledgeable. She actually understands my child’s language processing, and because of that, she’s making more progress than she ever has. In the Jan 3rd session (like all of the sessions) she offered insight and more ways to help. Her after-session notes also helped.

My son felt very comfortable speaking with the evaluator. She was very nice and professional. She explained well what she hoped to achieve and helped us to manage our expectations. She let my son lead many discussions and he seems excited to give virtual speech therapy a try.

C.W./Jan 4, 2024

Our son's therapist was amazing. She gave us so much valuable information and we will continue to utilize the skills she taught us to help our son keep progressing. The only reason we ended is because our son is struggling with focusing on therapy online in our home environment at this point. We will be eternally grateful for her pointing us in the right direction medically which ultimately led to him to having a surgery he greatly needed. Even though he still has a way to go, We are so happy with his progress. And it amazes us every day that we're able to have a conversation with him now.

J.G./Dec 21, 2023
