  • What services do you provide?
    I specialize in pediatric oral motor, feeding, oral placement, tethered oral tissues (TOTS/tongue tie), orofacial myofunctional disorders and articulation therapies. I work with children with low tone (cerebral palsy and Down syndrome) orofacial myofunctional disorders, tongue ties, childhood apraxia of speech and autism spectrum disorders. I also work with children with other diagnoses that impact expressive language and speech intelligibility due to muscle based weaknesses and/or poor oral motor planning.
  • How do I schedule an appointment?
    Appointments are scheduled as part of the evaluation process. A phone consult is conducted after the office receives the intake paperwork and forms, as well as all required information to conduct the evaluation.
  • How do I pay for your services?
    I do not accept insurance and I am considered an “out of network provider”. At the end of each month I provide the family with a receipt (super bill) to submit to their insurance company. It is the patient’s responsibility to know what their plan covers and what procedures need to be followed. Please be aware that some companies require a script or pre-authorization prior to services. Note: I am informing you that your child’s services may be covered in network at a lesser rate, and you have every right to find a provider who accepts your insurance.
  • Do I have to do an evaluation if one has already been done?
    I conduct an initial oral placement/feeding and speech evaluation and an orofacial myofunctional evaluation for each new patient without exception. A clinical base line is critical in order to develop an individualized treatment plan.
  • What is the process?
    All appointments are scheduled via email. In general, I schedule evaluations between 4 to 6 weeks from the date I receive the completed paperwork and forms. After the evaluation appointment, families receive an email copy of the completed written evaluation report with a super bill if of they wish to submit to their insurance company.
  • How do you determine fees?
    Evaluation fees are determined by the length and type of the particular evaluation appointment and will be discussed prior to scheduling an appointment.
