About me

Hi! I'm Katie. I became a licensed speech-language pathologist (SLP) in 2010. I became an SLP because I love the intricacies and fluidity of language. I have worked in so many different settings and appreciated different aspects of each. I’ve worked in hospital acute care, inpatient rehab, outpatient clinics, skilled nursing facilities, long-term acute care, high schools, middle schools, elementary and preschools, early intervention, and home health for infants, toddlers, and geriatric populations. I’ve learned so much from every setting and every client! I also had the opportunity to supervise graduate students who were in training to become speech pathologists, which was both rewarding and fun. My clinical style is holistic and client-led, with a focus on family involvement, total communication, and empowerment.

Our speech therapist was able to keep up with our incredibly fast talker. And appreciate her interests (incorporating them in games when possible) in ways that motivated and encouraged her throughout the lessons and with homework during the week.

Katie is fun, patient, and encouraging and my daughter loves the sessions with her.

Katie did SO much for our family. She was kind, compassionate, caring, and used tools that effectively helped our 2 daughters and our family so much. She completely changed our oldest daughter’s life and I know she (and us all!) will always remember Katie’s dedication to helping her thrive. Any time i had a question, a concern, she was always fast to reply and made sure I was thoroughly heard and that she helped with a solution. She was the best speech pathologist we could have ever found for our family!

We had a terrible experience with another company. I told Katie what I was looking for and she met us where we were at - she provided compassionate, gentle, trauma informed services and it made a world of difference! For me and my son. She saw his individual interests and strengths and made therapy fun, and he made very fast progress with her. I’m so grateful to her for hearing me and providing such great trauma informed care.
