She started her career in the public schools but after a summer internship in the hospital setting, she switched career paths and became a specialist in acute rehab and long term acute care for patients of all ages. She became the Rehab Manager of 3 facilities before leaving it all behind to become a mom and part-time school based speech pathologist. With her youngest in kindergarten, Shari decided to focus on more individualized therapy by starting a private practice.

No insurance? No worries!
Paying for therapy services can add up quickly, but we want EVERY child to get the help he or she needs.
That is why we have several options to help you.
We believe there is ALWAYS a way to pay for your child's therapy.
