Working with Children

For over 35 years, I've worked with young children as a Speech Therapist, using the Arts and Play as the medium for ease and comfort in developing communication skills.


My love of people, appreciation for a child's self esteem, and background in Fine Arts and Counseling, led me to do what I love most - to connect with a child's desire to communicate. 

As children develop, parents have questions, concerns and worries. I would be honored to help. Please contact me.

Do you have questions about your child's fluency or stuttering?

Are you concerned that your child's language is delayed?

Is he or she difficult to understand?

"Ellen has been phenomenonal with our four year old, and our family in general.  Her gentle nature and whole child/family approach has worked so well with our daughter and it has been incredible to see the strong bond and relationship develop between the two. Ellen’s creative approach has helped our daughter to speak more confidently and increased her esteem.


Ellen has integrated our family into the lessons and practice and taught us how to better support our daughter's growth in fun and engaging ways.

Within only a year so many people have commented on how much clearer our child speaks and it has been wonderful to watch her speak up and assert herself . We have been so grateful for Ellen’s “out of the box” approach and ability to connect with and love our child made the process of speech therapy much more comfortable for our entire family."
