Family-First Speech Therapy

Family is where life begins

and love never ends

Taylor’ed speech-language therapy services make the difference

My approach to speech therapy is unique because it is a skilled intervention with an emphasis on parent education and empowerment.

As soon as the child achieves success, I will hand off the activity to the parent and assist the parent in achieving that same outcome with the child.

The goal is not for the child just to develop this skill in the therapy room alone, but to be able to transfer that skill successfully at home and in the community.

Taylor’ed to Your Needs

A little bit about me

My husband and I have been married for eight years and we have three beautiful children, Olivia, Adeline and Emma. We chose to move to McKinney Texas because it's just perfect for our family. I love how it's surrounded by nature and has this small town feel with big city convenience.


In 2011 I received my Master’s Degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Texas Woman’s University while making the Dean’s List & NASC Honor Society Member with Honor.

10 years of Experience

I hit the ground running with seven internships that led me into many years of experience learning from the best & brightest in the speech-language pathology industry.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I be concerned about my child's communication development?

This depends on what you are noticing in the home. A young child (9 months) who is not responding to sounds, alerting to his/her name, showing comprehension of simple words, or pointing to call attention to interesting objects, may be showing early signs of a hearing loss or language disorder. Other general guidelines:

  • First Words by 12-15 months
  • Frequent Two-Word Combinations Heard by 21-24 months
  • Frequent Three-Word Combinations Heard by 36 months
  • Intelligible speech in conversation 90% of the time by age 4 years
  • Grammatically complete sentences most of the time by kindergarten age

My two-year-old child appears delayed in speech-language development, but my pediatrician says he/she is probably a late talker and will talk within the year. Should I do something now or wait?

While it is true children show some variation in when they achieve early language milestones, it also is true that a skilled speech-language pathologist can usually identify children who are more at risk for persistent delays, or who are showing signs of more deviant speech-language development (sometimes associated with other developmental disorders, such as autism). The earlier these children are identified, the sooner they can take advantage of intensive early intervention programs, often at no cost to families. Thus, it is better to rule out a more serious problem at a young age.

How long will speech therapy take before my child catches up to his or her peers?

This depends on many factors such as: severity of the disorder, student cooperation, motivation, and readiness to learn. Family involvement in implementing home practice is another significant factor. In general, children with receptive language problems (difficulty understanding language) tend to require longer courses of treatment, as do children with underlying neurocognitive impairments such as autism.

How long are therapy sessions?

Sessions are usually scheduled for 30-45 minutes of direct contact (with 15 additional minutes spent preparing and documenting a session).

Can I observe therapy sessions?

Every session parents are encouraged to participate and be in the room during the full therapy session. You will be learning along with your child to help develop skills on a daily basis.

Do you take insurance?

Yes! Any United Health Care & Blue Cross Blue Shield is accepted along with private pay. (out of pocket)

What are your payment options?

I accept all major credit cards, cash, checks, or even venmo!

Is your private practice in an office or home?

Therapy sessions take place in my office that is inside of my home. We have plenty of room for you and your child along with a playroom for other children not participating in the sessions and a backyard for playtime.
