My small boutique practice in Houston, Texas allows me to provide individualized, holistic, research-based treatment with a child-centered focus, and an advocate-based approach. The clinic's mission is to develop and grow each child's functional communication skills to their fullest potential in order to build communication independence in the natural environment, and to sustain positive relationships within family, school and community environments.
