Testimonials



Kelly is amazing! She is kind, caring, patient and extremely professional. Our experience with Kelly has been wonderful. In a few short months we have heard a tremendous increase in not only the amount of words our son can say, but also in the quality of his speech. He is speaking in full sentences!

Kelly makes her sessions with her patients fun and engaging. Her strong dedication, combined with her experience and knowledge makes her a great speech therapist and we were lucky to find her.
