"Working with Emily was one of the best experiences that our daughter has had as a teen! After she completed her long eighteen month course of braces, we discovered that she actually had a tongue thrust. This was the cause of certain sounds coming out like a lisp. Working with Emily and the 12-week Tongue Tips program, many of the “bad habits” that her tongue fell into were corrected! Tongue placement in the mouth also affected food preferences. At the end of the course, my daughter was more willing to give new flavors a try and now considers the formerly “disgusting” avocado as her favorite snack. This Tongue Tips Program is truly marvelous!"

“Ms Emily is really nice and fun! We play games which makes learning fun.”
“We have been very impressed with Emily. She is both super focused on the task at hand and at the same time makes sessions fun for Hava. Hava looks forward to her time with Ms Emily every week, which makes us so happy. We have seen tremendous improvement in Hava’s speech and tongue placement since working with Emily and we are so thrilled we found her!”

"Emily is a great speech instructor. Emily believed that I could get rid of my vocal nodules; even when my doctor questioned if it was possible. When I didn’t want to she pushed me through the exercises in a good way. She also helped me believe in myself. Finally, I got rid of them and I couldn’t have done it without Emily."

"Emily is a kind speech therapist. She made my exercises fun. She helped me get rid of my tongue thrust. Each week we did exercises that got me one step closer to my goal. Emily never said that I couldn’t do it. She always made sure I was trying my best."
"Emily is truly an amazing therapist! My daughter was barely speaking when she was 3-years-old and along with that came significant behavioral challenges. Emily approached each session with my daughter with patience , kindness and a huge smile on her face! My daughter learned to love therapy, and I am proud to say, she has made so much progress and can finally communicate with us - something I never thought was possible. I will never be able to thank Emily enough for what she did for our family."
"I have had three children work with Emily for different reasons - tongue thrust, articulation, and vocal nodules. All three of my children have had incredible success through their work with Emily. She knows each of their personalities and how to push them through the uncomfortableness of changing their habits or how they make sounds. Her patience always amazes me. My oldest son had spent six months working with another therapist for his vocal nodules and had zero improvements. He worked with Emily for five months they not only improved they were eliminated. I would highly recommend Emily to any family. She is extremely knowledgable and builds great relationships with her clients."
