My name is Ciara and I’m excited to be apart of your journey with Chatty Therapy.
I graduated with a master’s degree in speech language pathology from the Univeristy of Alberta. Since then I have gained experience in many areas of child communication including articulation, phonology, motor speech, early language, language delay, alternative and augmentative communication, and social communication as well as feeding difficulties. I have experience working in home, clinic, acute, and pre-school settings as well as in virtual environments. I have developed great interest in acquired speech, language, and swallowing difficulties in adults. The senior population holds a special place in my heart as before becoming an SLP, I worked closely with adults living in care who demonstrated a range of abilities.
I am passionate about providing client and family centred services that help clients achieve meaningful goals. I love to work with people of all ages and backgrounds. I strive to make treatment session fun; whether you’re 1 or 99, there’s always a way to reach your goals while having fun!
Providing clients with evidence based intervention is a main priority of mine and I always strive to find the most practical and appropriate approaches for each individual client. Continuing my education and consistently bettering myself as a clinician is extremely important to me as I grow and develop as a speech language pathologist.
