About Stefanie

Speech Language Pathologist

I specialize in oral motor deficits, feeding disorders, and muscle based speech sound disorders. I have worked in a variety of settings and have treated individuals of all ages (infants to adults) with a wide variety of communication and feeding disorders. I have my Early Intervention credential and have extensive experience working with children birth-3 years old. I believe in working collaboratively with the patient, family, and other professionals directly involved in the patient’s care, so that the patient can attain optimal success. When I’m not doing therapy sessions or brainstorming fun therapy ideas, I like reading, doing yoga, completing DIY projects, and spending time with my rescue dog, Faith Penelope.
