Speech Language Pathologist
I am a speech-language pathologist with more than a decade of experience in the field. I have strong clinical skills and am well prepared to help my clients. I have worked at well respected centres such as ErinOakKids (Toronto, Ontario) on their preschool interdisciplinary health team, Annapolis Valley Regional School Board (Wolfville, Nova Scotia), and am currently providing teletherapy with BC school boards. During these years I have developed expertise across various scopes of speech-language therapy and my practice incorporates parent/educator collaboration and training, as well as the development of home programs.
I am in good standing with both colleges in New Brunswick and British Columbia, and am a member of the SAC- Speech Audiology Association of Canada. I completed my Psychology undergraduate degree and Masters (Speech-Language Pathology) at Dalhousie University.
I also have certifications in: Advanced Picture Exchange Communication Systems (PECS), Hanen- It Takes Two to Talk & More Than Words, Modified Barium Swallow Impairment Profile, have attended American Speech Hearing Association (ASHA) Conferences in 2018 Boston where I attended seminars for Social Thinking and Motivational Interviewing, and completed continued education with ASHA’s Pediatric Feeding Assessment and Interventions and ASHA’s counselling skills courses, as well as attended local provincial conferences for literacy and narrative development, executive functioning and word finding.
I am delighted to provide private practice services and support children and their families with varied communication profiles.
