We were able to connect with Marissa virtually for 10 speech therapy sessions for our ~1.5 year old daughter. To be honest I was a bit skeptical of speech therapy for someone who can’t speak yet, but Marissa totally changed my mind. Marissa is an amazing speech therapist because she gave us 110% of her attention and energy when we met. She was a great listener, and she was kind and gentle when giving us tips and strategies to motivate our daughter to vocalize. She was also extremely thorough about our child’s needs and followed up with us after each session. She coached us and gave us the age appropriate tools we needed to encourage our daughter to get up to speed for her age. My husband and I are professionals but don’t interact with kids much in our everyday lives, and these therapy sessions were critical for helping our child develop at this young age. -Rachael V.
