Who We Are

We are speech-language pathologists and occupational therapists who are passionate about serving and supporting families.

Our speech-language pathologists and occupational therapists are nationally certified, state-licensed, and highly trained in a variety of specialty areas. We are neurodiversity-affirming and strive to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for all families. We bring commitment and passion to every session and pride ourselves on our creative programs, flexibility, quick decision making, and long-standing partnerships with local physicians, dentists, orthodontists, and community agencies.

What We Do

We provide high-quality services to families by putting kids at the center of therapy.

We offer three models of service: in-clinic, teletherapy, and a hybrid of the two.

We offer speech-language therapy for articulation, expressive and receptive language, oromyofunctional issues, motor speech, feeding and swallowing, stuttering, executive functioning, and social language.

We offer occupational therapy for fine and gross motor skills, feeding, self-care, hand-eye coordination, sensory integration, and visual-motor skills.

Intake and Insurance

Navigating care is challenging. We're here to help.

Taking the first step toward selecting a speech therapist or occupational therapist for your child can be an emotional experience. You might be full of questions and concerns of all sorts, ranging from insurance coverage to clinician qualifications to what will happen if your child throws a tantrum and refuses to participate. Emotions and concerns and questions mean that you’re engaged and focused on what’s best for your child. Coincidentally, so are we!

Clinic Announcements

There's always something happening at the clinic! Here's the latest report . . .
  • We’re happy to announce that we have two new SLPs joining our staff in July! We’ll be able to offer lots of scheduling options to folks this summer and into fall. More details coming soon.
  • Believe it or not, it’s not too soon to be thinking about your fall therapy schedule. Summer is a great time to move into an afterschool therapy spot. Let us know if you need one.

Laura Holden, Speech-Language Pathologist

Life is about relationships. I get to come to work every day and help children communicate so that they can access their social world, engage with others, and form relationships. There’s nothing better than watching a child become empowered by their communication and connecting with the world.

Christina Gagosian, Occupational Therapist

I love my job because I get to work with such amazing children, families, and therapists in a fun and creative way. It is extremely rewarding to be able to help children grow, learn, participate in family life, and just be kids.  Many children need a little extra support in order to process and adapt to their environments so that they can participate in everyday activities. I believe that every child and family can experience success and confidence in their goals, and I feel fortunate to be a part of that process.

People us (they really do)

I’ve been taking my (now) 3 year old to the Hello Clinic for several months now, and I could not be happier. As a mom, it’s hard to know something is a struggle for your child, and knowing his goals and celebrating his achievements along the way (alongside Jenny!) is so reassuring. I would recommend the Hello Clinic to anyone and everyone I know!

– A., clinic parent

I wholeheartedly recommend the Hello Clinic to anyone who needs a speech therapist or occupational therapist. Everyone here is amazing! I’ll never be able to adequately express my gratitude for how much they’ve done for my son. They are the best!

– Grace, clinic parent

We wanted to let you know how impressed we have been with you! You are the best person we have worked with for Oscar. He even mentioned how much you are helping him.

Jon, clinic parent

 

Clara loves it, absolutely her favorite therapies we are taking part in. I am learning a lot by observing. She is so eager to do whatever Christina has planned for their time. It was amazing to see. The visual on the whiteboard was *chefs kiss*.
