Our  Therapy Team

Therapy for your needs

How We Started

Our clinic was founded on our passion for aiding in the rehabilitation of clients who have experienced thinking skill changes due to brain injury or other neurological changes. We know that no two brain injuries are alike; therefore unique treatment plans are created by our therapists to fit the specific needs and goals of each individual patient. Our extensive TBI resource library provides survivors, caregivers and professionals with materials to broaden their understanding of Traumatic Brain Injury.


What We are Today

As our clinic grew, our services expanded to include toddlers, children and teens with a variety of impairments. In addition to our ability to provide services to adults, we grew to address these needs.

We now include more clinicians who can address issues related to deaf and hard of hearing, language patterns specific to autism and autism disorders, motor speech disorders (such as apraxia and dysarthria), medical impairment, language and speech disorders, social language, and myofunctional therapy.


Why We're Unique

We view each client as a distinctive individual and recognize that your needs are different from others. We take the time to get to know you, your interests and your personal goals.  In designing a treatment program, therapeutic tasks are tailored to enhance performance in daily activities, the workplace, school, and in social situations. Our therapy is client-driven and typically includes intervention in the areas of speech, language, attention, memory, organization, and complex thinking skills such as problem solving.


Our clinicians have extensive training and experience. Each holds multiple certifications and has attended trainings to ensure they are providing up-to-date, evidence-based therapy to our clients.
