About me

Hi! I'm Nirali. I became a licensed speech-language pathologist (SLP) in 2016. Since childhood, I've been driven by a deep-seated desire to help others and have always felt a strong pull towards making a meaningful impact in people's lives. This innate passion and empathy led me to discover speech-language pathology as a perfect avenue to channel my aspirations. Throughout my journey, I've been incredibly fortunate to have had remarkable mentors who have not only nurtured my professional growth but also shaped my personal outlook. Their guidance and wisdom have been invaluable, reinforcing my belief in the transformative power of speech therapy. These experiences have not only solidified my commitment to the field but also ignited a fire within me to continually strive for excellence and innovation in my practice. I am genuinely excited about the opportunity to continue learning and growing as a speech-language pathologist, making a positive difference in the lives of those I have the privilege to serve. I was fortunate enough to work alongside Occupational therapists during my most recent speech therapy job at Playworks. I learned so much about sensory integration working alongside OTs. It was there that I was also able to learn about DIR Floortime. I was also able to go to a conference at the Celebrations School for Children in New Jersey and watch DIR floor time in the real world setting. I worked in settings such as public school and private practice. I would describe my clinical style as client-centered, functional, individualized/personalized, family-centric, strengths-based, and sensory integrated.

Other interests

Outside of speech-language pathology, I have a rich tapestry of interests and hobbies. During the challenges of the pandemic, I found love and got married, and now I cherish every moment with our son. Cooking at home is a creative outlet for me, allowing me to explore new flavors and techniques. I also enjoy staying active through spin and yoga classes, finding balance and peace in movement. Nothing beats a refreshing walk outdoors, where I can connect with nature and clear my mind. Above all, I treasure the time spent with my family, creating memories and sharing laughter together.
