"Amber has great pediatric experience. She is proficient in a multitude of speech and language disorders. She personalizes each session and intervention based on her clients needs and goals. She worked with my daughter for several weeks and was able to advance her even beyond her goals, ending with a complete discharge from speech all together. We were very pleased with her services and would definitely recommend. Thank you Amber!!"

Tamra 

"Amber has been incredible to work with! My son looks forward to every session with her and genuinely loves her so much. She brings the perfect balance of being playful but making sure that he is also productive and improving! Amber's warmth and patience have made my son so comfortable with her despite usually being a bit shy. She also provides feedback on his sessions regularly, which has been so helpful. His speech has improved quickly and we couldn't be happier!"

Katrina

"Amber is absolutely the best!! We have tried a few different speech therapists throughout the last year, and I have seen the most progress since starting with Amber. My daughter loves her, she is patient and kind but also firm and pushes her when needed. When we started 6 months ago, my daughter was barely saying one word. Now, she’s putting 3-4 words together with ease and progressing. I would definitely recommend Amber social speech services to anyone interested-10/10!!"
