Our Unique Therapy Approach

Bridget has been praised for her ability to connect quickly with children and adults and build a fun, trusting relationship. Communication skills are personal and difficult to work on, but with the right connection, meaningful progress can be made.

Speech Therapy Talk Services, LLC treatment philosophy:

  • Only use research-based treatments that are tailored to each child’s individual needs. 
  • Personal 1:1 treatment is crucial to make meaningful progress in the quickest way possible.
  • Value the importance of early detection and early treatment so children do not have to play “catch-up” in elementary schools.
  • Offer a personalized touch to the therapy process so that children respond well to and love coming to therapy each week.
  • We value importance of family/caregiver involvement during treatment.
  • Believe that a therapist must truly get to know each client and their family in order to deliver the most effective treatment. Trust and connection are crucial during the therapy process!
