Successful Recovery in Chronic Aphasia

Jane began working with LIFE Speech Pathology three years after suffering a left-brain stroke.

Before that, she had been the director of accounting for a local IT firm. In her free time, Jane liked to garden, attend church, read books in her book club, eat out, and travel with her family and friends.

Due to her aphasia, she struggled to find words, listen to voicemails and conversations, read emails or text messages, or write down phone messages. In addition, her cognitive communication was also affected, leading to difficulty focusing on activities, conversing in a quiet environment with multiple people, losing her train of thought, and difficulty expressing her ideas to others

Jane had gone over two years without any speech pathology treatment for her aphasia, leading her to be increasingly frustrated that she was unable to socialize with friends over a meal, have a conversation with her husband, or describe to her doctor the serious side effects of a medication she was on.

Jane was in search of aid. Her state of mind was in disarray due to her difficulty in relating and conversing with her relatives and acquaintances.

After a Google search, she came across LIFE Speech Pathology and made an appointment for a complimentary discovery session.

Utilizing the LIFE Participation Approach to Aphasia, we analyzed all of the different life situations, communication environments, personal identity, attitudes, and feelings, as well as considering language and thinking impairments to create a customized plan of treatment that focused on Jane's goals.

Treatment Targets
Attention ●  Working Memory ●  Verbal Expression ●  Self-advocacy
Metacognition Strategies  ●  Communication Partner Training

Jane Met Her Goals for Aphasia Therapy

Jane has accomplished her objectives for Aphasia Therapy, utilizing planning and strategies and advocating for her needs. She can now converse while making meals for her family and engage in conversations with multiple people around a table. She can also communicate her worries about medications and side effects through email, voicemail, and in person. She can drive and navigate to unfamiliar places in her town without having to set the cruise control to control speed, and she can engage in meaningful conversations and exchanges with her family and friends in diverse circumstances

Hello, I'm Genevieve.

LIFE Speech Pathology and LIFE Aphasia Academy® were envisioned to meet the comprehensive needs of clients and their families living with aphasia.  As a healthcare professional who has worked with individuals with aphasia in the hospital and their homes, I have witnessed their concerns, fears, and daily challenges firsthand. These experiences have inspired me to establish a private practice and training program that helps improve life participation for those affected by aphasia.

Rebuilding Lives After Aphasia

Treatment addresses the whole person + whole family by creating meaningful connections with friends, family, and the community, enabling clients to engage in activities and conversations that matter most to them.

I reject the notion of plateaus and encourage my clients to do the same. There is always another way, a different angle, or another approach to explore. I am committed to helping our clients achieve remarkable growth and healing.

Measuring Success by LIFE Participation

Effective communication is a fundamental human right

Our holistic approach to rehabilitation prioritizes communication skills and active involvement in daily life. We aim to work towards your goals as they become our own.

Living with aphasia encompasses much more than just language and speech impairments. It involves active participation in various life situations, influenced by your personality, attitudes, and emotions.

Additionally, the communication and language environments you engage with play a crucial role in your experience with aphasia.

How would you measure successful treatment?



Our practice prioritizes setting relevant and meaningful goals that align with the individual's environment. Our interventions are designed to meet immediate needs while making a lasting impact, in line with our approach to treating aphasia.
