I’m a pediatric speech-language pathologist, and the owner of Ascend Speech Therapy, LLC! I started Ascend with limited hours on the weekends when I lived in Baltimore, still working full time for the Center for Autism and Related Disorders at Kennedy Krieger Institute. I fell in love with Private Practice, and when my family and I relocated to NJ, I brought Ascend with us! I’m thrilled to now serve our Ascend families full time. I provide in-home speech-language evaluations and speech therapy for children of all ages in Ocean and Monmouth Counties. I also provide teletherapy for all of NJ and Maryland! Though my specialty area is Autism Spectrum Disorder, I work with children with all speech and language needs. My social media accounts (Ascend Speech Therapy on Instagram and Facebook,) share speech-language development facts, easy at-home activities, and favorite materials to help facilitate language development. I am passionate about helping families reach their communication goals. I believe therapy should be fun, research-based, and functional in your lives. I’m so excited to continue to serve the families of this community!
