What They’re Saying
San Francisco Speech and Fluency Center:
Uniquely Tailored for People Who Stutter
One of our most basic human needs is to connect and communicate. My mission at San Francisco Speech and Fluency Center is to provide speech therapy that supports you or your child in meeting this need with dignity and confidence. From childhood through adulthood, I focus on helping individuals to share their words without fear or anxiety, whether it’s addressing stuttering, articulation, or other speech disorders. My overarching treatment goal is for you to feel understood and to freely engage with the world around you, using words as the building block to an abundant, connected and happy life.
Therapeutic Approaches Include
Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Avoidance Reduction Therapy for Stuttering (ARTS)
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Palin Parent Child Interaction (PCI)
…and whatever else you or your child need
With adults and older children my therapeutic approach is heavily influenced by methods that increase your confidence as a communicator while learning to stutter more easily. You are not broken. You don’t need to be fixed.
With preschool aged children, my approach focuses heavily on helping parents identify what they’re already doing (but may not be aware of) to support their child’s fluent speech. I also focus on supporting healthy communication attitudes and resilience.
