Speak Life Speech Therapy is a unique, client-focused private practice specializing in the treatment of speech sound disorders, orofacial myofunctional disorders including TOTs (tethered oral tissue), and literacy. We partner with parents to help each child communicate confidently and reach their fullest potential.
Speech therapy services are available across Ohio, both in-person and online.
Speech Sound Disorders
Our individualized therapy sessions help children speak with confidence! We find out about each child’s interests and incorporate them into sessions, using a variety of treatment approaches such as DTTC, ReST, and Cycles to improve speech sound accuracy. We also specialize in Childhood Apraxia of Speech.
Our evidence-based exercises help children learn to activate and coordinate their facial muscles when speaking, eating, sleeping, and breathing. We also coach caregivers to help their child complete daily exercises and improve muscle patterns between sessions.
We treat dyslexia by incorporating structured literacy into motivating and engaging activities! Our methods are tailored to each child and informed by academic programs such as Lively Letters, Smarter Intervention, IMSE/Orton Gillingham, and Reading Simplified.
Owner, Speech-Language Pathologist
I am a compassionate mom, wife, and therapist who loves helping children communicate. I founded Speak Life Speech Therapy to provide flexible therapy services that are tailored to meet the needs of each family. I find so much joy in getting to know each child, discovering what makes them unique, meeting them where they are, and showing them all they can accomplish!

The whole ride home so far he just keeps saying love you mommy/daddy. He never has said that.
I just wanted to say to you and everyone thank you!!! What you all did for Pax is amazing. The whole ride home so far he just keeps saying "love you mommy/daddy". He never has said that. It’s the words we have been waiting to hear. Also he has sung the song "BINGO" over and over. He has never sung a song attempting to say the words — until this week. It made me tear up everyday at camp hearing him sing. The confidence you all gave him is amazing. You all were so kind and welcoming. You all are amazing people who give the best gift ever, hope! Thank you all so much!!! See you next year! Again thank you!!!
