Rachel founded Small Steps Therapy, LLC in 2013 as a way to share her passion for helping children and families learn to communicate, talk, and eat. Rachel began her career in the medical and outpatient settings working with both adults and children with a variety of speech, language, and swallowing challenges. Additionally, Rachel spent several years in the academic setting working with students ranging from kindergarten to middle school. During Rachel’s time in the hospital and school settings she felt a strong calling towards private practice and providing services in a unique, family-centered model. She visualized a clinic that was not subject to the strict sterile protocol of a hospital or the structured hours of a school day. Thus, Small Steps Therapy, LLC was born to serve the needs of both a passionate speech language pathologist and the community.
Rachel is also the mother to three amazing children and uses her daily life experiences to relate to clients and create treatment plans that are manageable for busy families like her own.
