"Natalie is a skilled and knowledgeable speech therapist. She offered well-chosen exercises, tips, and homework that fitted my specific circumstances, and which quickly made a difference to my voice. Alongside that, she is warm, encouraging, and very easy to learn from."
"My son always looked forward to his sessions with her, and made so much progress in their time together. Natalie also worked with my daughter with swallow therapy and she quickly helped her learn to swallow correctly. She cares about each one of her clients and advocates for them to get all the tools needed to succeed. My family loved working with her!"
"Natalie is amazing!
I had a chronic cough/tick that had persisted for years, but after my first session with Natalie and the exercises she gave me, the issue was gone almost immediately. She is very patient, kind, and talented. Would highly recommend."
