What Our Clients Are Saying...

I remember being a little bit embarrassed about having speech problems whne I was little and, at first, I didn't want people to know I was in speech therapy. But, after a while, not only did my spech improve but my confidence did as well, which was good because I was just starting to get involved with theatre. When I graduated college, my school's vocal coach said that I had the best articulation in the school (this would have shocked my first grade speech teacher). I am currently in New York pursuing my craft as a performer and I can be confident enough to say that if I hadn't taken speech therapy when I was young, I might not be where I am today.
