Each session will leave you feeling inspired and motivated. We will talk about things beyond food, seeking to bring balance to important elements of your life such as love and relationship as well as career and money.

I have had the pleasure of working with children and families of South Florida for over 36 years. I began my career as an Elementary Educator and then received my Masters in Speech and Language Impairments in 1995. I am knowledgeable in the Broward County Public School process and access to services for individuals with disabilities. I provide feeding, speech and language therapy to pediatric clients. My expertise is in evaluating and treating clients with feeding difficulties, apraxia, articulation delays, phonological delays, language delays and auditory processing. I believe that every child can be successful given the proper tools and guidance. Each child is unique and needs to be encouraged through love, patience and compassion. You must treat the whole child, by using their strengths to overcome their weaknesses.
