We believe that all individuals have the ability to achieve great success by enhancing communication skills. The manner in which we say things, our pronunciation, our use & interpretation of non-verbal skills, & our active listening abilities are all vital components in successful and meaningful interactions with others in our daily lives. When our messages are not understood or are disrupted, speaking situations often become effortful and stressful. We often develop negative feelings towards communication and social interactions with others and shy away from unique opportunities that have the potential to increase our social circles, advance our careers, or further our personal growth.
Our goal for our clients is to feel empowered, confident, and be effective communicators across environments so that they can easily obtain more success in their personal and professional endeavors. We will help you achieve this by creating individualized plans and providing effective training for you to attain your communicative goals. As licensed speech-language pathologists, we have a combined total of over 50 years of experience working with individuals across the country and internationally on various speech and language needs, believe in utilizing evidence-based practices, understand the neuro-musculature of the oral mechanism and the requirements to produce appropriate sounds in a fluent manner, have studied the vital components of speech sound and language development, and have a vast amount of experience in rehabilitation services in the areas of voice, fluency, articulation (pronunciation), language, pragmatics, and feeding/swallowing. With a solid foundation, we are proud to be leaders in American accent modification / management training and professional communication consulting services to help you better achieve success.
Furthermore, we believe in treating our clients as a whole and with respect and great care. Your culture, diversity, & individuality should be celebrated!
