About Us

Testimonials

When our son was 3 years old, his speech was unclear, and it was difficult to understand him. He is bright, sensitive, and perceptive, and it was so hard to watch him struggle to be understood. We were referred to Let’s Talk Therapy, and saw improvement almost immediately after starting to receive services. The therapist who worked with our son was very well qualified and professional. Our son looked forward with excitement to his therapy sessions. To him it was all fun and games, a result of beautifully coordinated activities and lessons to help him reach his goals. His progress was closely monitored, and we saw him literally blossom into a confident and well adjusted little boy. We are so thankful to Let’s Talk Therapy for this wonderful experience, and for giving our son the tools he needs to succeed!

We’ve been using Lets Talk Therapy for over a year to provide speech therapy services for both our 7 year old son and 4 year old daughter and we could not be happier.  The therapists are all qualified, warm, and very patient, making the sessions so enjoyable that my children look forward to them!

We are so happy with the amazing work our speech therapist has been doing with our 4 year old son.  She meets with him in school, which is so convenient for us.  The therapist has truly created a wonderful relationship with our son, and we continue to see significant progress.  We receive frequent updates of his progress.  We look forward to continuing over the summer.  Thank you so much for your professionalism as well as your personal touch.

Let’s Talk Therapy has been providing speech therapy for my 9 year old daughter for the past 6 months, after receiving therapy through the school district and another private practitioner for over 2 years. This is the first time that we are hearing noticeable results and a significant improvement. My daughter looks forward to speech therapy because the therapist is great, works well with her, and engages with her in a fun way. The staff is extremely professional, and we are thrilled with the dramatic change in her speech.

“Let’s Talk Therapy is providing wonderful speech therapy for my four your old daughter!  Rebecca is a wonderful, professional, and highly knowledgeable therapist who is a pleasure to deal with.  In addition to employing a soft and gentle approach when working with my young daughter, Rebecca always takes the time to explain the goals of the treatment sessions and the techniques used in a way that I, as a non-professional mom, can understand well.  In addition to the actual sessions, carryover is promoted by Rebecca’s easy-to-follow homework assignments.  Our experience with Let’s Talk Therapy in four words — “A Very Happy One”.

Lets Talk Therapy is an efficient organization that gets to the root of the matter quickly. From the initial phone call, I was set up and taken care of right away. People talk about how they have to wait for someone to get back to them. Lets Talk Therapy was there from the beginning setting up the evaluations and sessions with out delay. They are extremely easy to communicate with and they produce great results. I am very happy with the progress my son is making, we saw results right away!
