At LIFE Speech Pathology, we see beyond the diagnosis.

We recognize you for who you are: a person full of life with unique strengths, aspirations, and valued interactions.

We understand the struggles that come with aphasia, Parkinson's, and primary progressive aphasia—the frustration of communication barriers and the yearning for seamless conversations with loved ones.

We're here to acknowledge your current abilities, celebrate every achievement, and address every challenge.

Together, we'll explore meaningful interactions that matter most to you, crafting personalized pathways to enhance your engagement with the world and its people.

We aim to empower you to interact with your world on your terms, reconnecting you to the situations and relationships that enrich your life.

The Struggle is Real
⎯⎯

People with aphasia, a communication disorder, often face difficulties in various language skills. These challenges may include speaking, understanding others, reading, and writing.

Consequently, everyday communication can become frustrating and arduous for individuals with aphasia. They may experience feelings of isolation due to the struggles they face, which can lead to decreased social interaction.

It is important to provide support and understanding to individuals with aphasia to help them overcome these obstacles and promote effective communication.

Why Clients Choose LIFE Speech Pathology

RECONNECTING HEARTS
When my wife had a stroke at 52, our world turned upside down. Not only did we grapple with her health issues, but her aphasia also created a barrier that left us feeling isolated, especially as a couple who cherished deep conversations.

Approaching LIFE Speech Pathology, I carried a mix of hope and skepticism – could we find our way back to each other? The transformation was profound. The personalized care and innovative techniques they provided didn’t just improve her ability to communicate; they rekindled our connection, breaking through the isolation we had felt.

We are not just surviving; we're thriving together, rediscovering the joy of sharing life's simple moments. I am profoundly grateful for the renewed bond and the precious conversations that LIFE Speech Pathology has brought back into our lives.
- Dale, Spouse

EXPANDING MY WORDS
About a year after my stroke, I began working with Genevieve at LIFE Speech Pathology.  

Today, I've regained my ability to talk, write sentences, spell words, and send emails to friends and family. I've achieved a new level of independence – living alone, cooking, cleaning, and managing daily activities. My life has been further brightened by my new cat, Suki! My speech is more precise and pronounced, and I continue to make strides in my recovery through ongoing work with Genevieve.

The combination of Lumosity, pool exercises, and Genevieve's guidance has been pivotal in my recuperation, bringing me hope and a rejuvenated life.
- HB, Aphasian

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
RECOVERY + EMPOWERMENT
I faced significant challenges due to aphasia following a stroke. Completing sentences was a struggle, social interactions were awkward, and having friends and family around caused me great anxiety and frustration. I desperately wanted to communicate more effectively – to think of different words, speak to strangers without needing my spouse to complete my sentences, and express my needs without becoming upset or overwhelmed.

Genevieve's approach was transformative. She was not just a clinician to me but a calming presence, a friend who uplifted and encouraged me. Her methods extended beyond our sessions; she provided valuable online resources and tailored exercises, sent me summaries to aid my memory, and offered strategies for daily challenges like driving. Her constant reminders of my progress were a source of great encouragement.  

Perhaps most importantly, Genevieve understood the value of involving my family. She offered to communicate with them, enhancing their understanding and empathy towards my condition. This has significantly improved my relationships with my spouse and grown children, fostering a deeper understanding and sympathy for my experiences.  

I wholeheartedly encourage anyone facing similar challenges to seek Genevieve's help. Her supportive, gentle, and holistic approach has improved my communication skills and enriched my relationships and overall quality of life. Start now – you will be grateful for the difference it makes.
