"Briana worked with our son, Oliver, for two years on an articulation delay. She easily established rapport with our high energy kiddo and naturally engaged with us as the parents to help support his progress. We all pivoted during the pandemic to virtual services, and Briana individualized her treatment plans to best target Oliver's needs and interests. Briana's been an invaluable resource to Oliver's development and she assisted with his (and our) progress immensely. ”
"Briana was so helpful in improving our son's speech. It was a struggle to understand him and it was causing frustration for both him and us. After each of Briana's visits, I began to notice improvements in his speech. She was so good with him and gave us a lot of tools that helped on a daily basis until she came back to work more with him. She checked in throughout the week and was always available for questions or thoughts that popped up in between visits. Her schedule was also very flexible which helps a lot when you have two young kids! It is amazing how far he came in just a few months and that wouldn't have happened without Briana's expertise and guidance. If you are looking for a speech therapist, I would highly recommend her!"
