My Story

Hello! My name is Rita, and I am so happy to be part of the Chatty Therapy team!

I graduated from the University of Alberta with my Masters in Speech Language Pathology, as well as my Graduate Certificate in Rehabilitation Medicine, Francophone Practice for SLP. Since then, I have experienced working in various settings, namely in acute care, tertiary rehabilitative care, clinic, community health, and in private home environments. I have enjoyed working in groups and one-on-one, in both virtual and in-person settings. My experience ranges from preschool children in areas of early language development to end-of-life care in the area of feeding and swallowing.

My favorite population is that of adults with aphasia and/or other acquired language disorders. My expertise also lies in dual language development at the preschool age, and I absolutely love working with diverse, multilingual populations!

I like to approach my work from a family-oriented perspective, as I believe it is crucial for a client and their family to be involved in their speech therapy goals. I look forward to supporting clients and their families through their personal communication goals, in a fun and effective manner!
