Obtaining ongoing educational opportunities and implementing evidence-based treatment is at the core of the AASL team. Alicia utilizes her various trainings to grow and support the students she works with from infancy through early adulthood. She is an Interactive Metronome (IM) certified trainer in the clinic as well as an IM Home provider. She holds a passion for reading instruction and is an Orton Gillingham, TLC Lively Letters, as well as Lindamood Bell Seeing Stars and LiPS trained provider to incorporate these highly-effective, multi-sensory reading approaches into her client’s intervention programs. She too, is trained in PROMPT technique for speech elicitation and PEERS for adolescent social skill instruction, as well as incorporates principles of Verbal Behavior Therapy into her work. She is experienced working with children and adults who stutter, in both individual and group settings.
Alicia is enthusiastic to work with clients of all ages, profiles, and abilities, addressing their “whole body” needs through interdisciplinary consideration and collaboration. Guiding her therapy is the commitment to establish trusting and open relationships with both clients and their families, and to continuously work together to meet each client’s and family’s unique needs, bridging the gap from the therapy room into the home and community. Alicia infuses great passion and sincere love and care into her work and toward each individual client she serves. She considers it a privilege to be a part of each of her clients’ lives, successes, and journeys ahead.
When not fulfilling her role as a speech-language therapist, she can be found spending time with her family and friends, taking photographs of the beauty around her, or spending time at the water fishing or kayaking.
