Meet Our Team
Our compassionate therapists have experience with all ages, from birth through geriatrics for a wide range of diagnoses.
Our team of carefully selected speech and occupational therapists are knowledgeable, compassionate and eager to help you reach your therapy goals. Therapists with the area of expertise that you or your family member require will be paired with you from the very first visit if possible and keep you with that therapist for the duration of your treatment. If the fit doesn’t seem to be quite right after that first session, we can make a change.
Among our team members, we have experience with all ages (birth through geriatrics) for a wide range of diagnoses. Additionally, some of our therapists speak Spanish.
All of our speech-language pathologists have a master’s degree, are licensed through the State of Oregon Board of Examiners for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology and have a Certificate for Clinical Competency (CCCs) through the American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA).
