Hi! My name is Heidi and I’m passionate about helping children discover their voice and strengthen their communication skills. I am a licensed speech-language pathologist in Minnesota and am certified through the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. In my 15 years as a speech-language pathologist, I have been fortunate to work with many children with a variety of different needs and diagnoses.
I love working with children and families to tailor therapy to fit their specific needs and skills. This may mean helping a child say his first words or providing support to a child learning to successfully maintain a conversation with her family and friends. It may mean guiding a child as she learns to fix her speech sound errors or helping a child learn to use his augmentative or alternative form of communication. Every child is unique and communication is complex, so what we work on is different for each child. Regardless of what we work on, I am committed to utilizing evidence-based treatment approaches, while creating a fun, trusting, compassionate environment. I want children to feel valued and to be excited to come to speech-language therapy!
I’m also a mother of three beautiful, creative, energetic kids. My oldest is 9 and my twins are 6 years old. They definitely keep me busy! Being a wife and mother has taught me so much, and has helped me continue to grow as a therapist. I believe that a child’s family plays an important role in the therapy process. I strive to empower families, to ensure that they have the tools they need to help their children grow and succeed!
