About me

I love words and have a passion for communication. I became an SLP to help people connect and overcome communication challenges. Seeing that happen with my clients, from young children to older adults, is incredibly rewarding! I love what I do.

Elissa is amazing. My daughter learned so much so fast. She kept her engaged and my daughter looked forward to all her sessions. We are sad to leave, I’m so grateful to have found such a great speech therapist.

Our therapist has been wonderful. Always giving us helpful tips and tricks and homework to help our child. Our son loves going to "class." We have seen huge improvements! I've recommended it to a couple friends.

My sessions with Elissa are always fun and stimulating. I look forward to each one. Her comments and suggestions are always helpful in preparation for the succeeding one.

C.E./Nov 29, 2023

Elissa is absorbing to talk with, perceptive and intelligent which keeps our sessions engrossing. She keeps her eye (and mine) on the ball and provides interesting "homework".
