Expressive Speech and Feeding is a Reston / Herndon children’s speech therapy and feeding therapy private practice.

We help children, from birth to 18 years, speak clearly and cultivate human connection by better expressing their needs, personality and love. Oh, and we help them become less picky eaters too!

She is licensed in speech therapy in Maryland, Virginia and Texas; certified by ASHA and served as a lead teacher for children with emotional-behavior disabilities early in her career.
