Support for Individuals
With Communication Challenges
Whether you have had a brain injury, stroke, or are managing Parkinson’s, I am here at any stage of your condition. With a holistic, functional approach, I will be supporting you throughout our time together, setting goals with you, teaching you strategies, monitoring your progress and rejoicing with you at your successes.
FAMILY COACHINGIn addition to therapy for the client, and/or all family members may access coaching sessions to support the client or address other topics. Unlimited emailing is included.
Group TherapyFor some individuals, group therapy is another way to make progress. Together, people practice their skills, support each other through difficult times, and celebrate each other’s accomplishments. It is another safe place to be.
Your Title Goes Here
TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURIES and STROKES
Recoveries are lifelong. Whether you are just beginning the process, or need to continue where you left off, together we can determine your needs, and goals to move you forward on your journey. Individual or group treatments, and/or coaching are to be determined.
Eighty-nine percent of Individuals with Parkinson’s find that their voices are affected. This program SPEAK OUT!®, developed by the Parkinson Voice Project, inspires you to “Live with Intent”, while we train you to increase the volume of your voice. It includes an evaluation, a treatment program, and a group program called the LOUD Crowd ®.
As speech-language pathologists, we also treat cognition or thinking skills. The term “Executive Function” refers to thinking skills that allow us to function well in our daily activities. They include (but aren’t limited to): focusing, attention/concentration, memory, problem-solving, abstract reasoning, organizing, initiating/completing tasks, and social competence.
You are not your communication disorder. You are someone who has had a traumatic event or developed a condition, but you are still the person everyone has known and still loves. Certainly, there are new challenges for you and you still require guidance to understand and manage them. You bring all this: your history, talents, experiences, and obstacles to the table.
I bring my experience and training in speech-language pathology, coaching and integrative health to the table. As a team, we develop your goals and meet each difficulty with the intention of making more progress and achieving more successes for you.
“After my brain injury, I thought I’d never be able to work again. Dr. Judi worked with me on learning new strategies for solving problems that helps me be successful at home and at work. It’s made a big difference.”
“I had a stroke that affected my language. I had therapy when it happened, but then it stopped. Two months later, Judi and I started working together and I made much more progress. Thank you.”
When I started working with Dr. Judi on organizing things better, I asked her to coach me too. She helped me plan appropriate goals and helped me reach them. It was a great experience.
