About Us

Therapy Corps, PLLC is a mobile speech and language therapy practice serving Central Austin. The name Therapy Corps combines the therapist’s 2 greatest passions: speech therapy and her experience in the Peace Corps (Niger, West Africa, 1997-1999).  At Therapy Corps, our philosophy is to work with individuals using a naturalistic approach so that skills acquired in the therapy setting are sustainable and can easily transfer to outside settings. We work with children and adults in most settings depending on patient need including: independent schools/private schools, child care development centers, after school care facilities and in home and community settings.

Our philosophy is to develop speech and language patterns in a naturalistic setting that’s fun and skills can be easily transferred into the home environment; we incorporate a collaborative approach where parent/caregiver involvement is strong and the patient’s interests are captured.  Our goal is to make therapy a sustainable model by working with the patient and caregiver to generate change. We use a naturalistic, play based approach to intervention and my sessions are generally 40 minutes in length.

Our practice is mobile; our philosophy is that the patient is best in his/her own natural environment. Life is already over-scheduled and stressful; Therapy Corps, PLLC comes to you for all services.
