  • West Coast Stuttering Center:
    Uniquely Tailored for People Who Stutter

    One of our most basic human needs is to connect and communicate. My mission at West Coast Stuttering Center is to provide speech therapy that supports you or your child in meeting this need with dignity and confidence.

    Speech Therapy Services Offered

    • Stuttering and Cluttering (aka fluency disorders) in children and adults
    • Articulation and Phonology Disorders (aka speech sound disorders)
    • Social Communication Disorders
    • Executive Functioning Skills (e.g. problem solving, organizing and planning)
    • Expressive and Receptive Language Disorders

    Therapeutic Approaches Include

    With adults and older children my therapeutic approach is heavily influenced by methods that increase your confidence as a communicator while learning to stutter more easily.  You are not broken.  You don’t need to be fixed.

    With preschool aged children, my approach focuses heavily on helping parents identify what they’re already doing (but may not be aware of) to support their child’s fluent speech.  I also focus on supporting healthy communication attitudes and resilience.

    • Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
    • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
    • Avoidance Reduction Therapy for Stuttering (ARTS)
    • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
    • Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT Tapping)
    • Palin Parent Child Interaction (PCI)
    • Lidcombe Program

    I used to block myself from interactions because of the fear of it being a disaster, but I haven’t done that in awhile now.

    “D’s transition to PreK went by seamlessly. She loves her new class, friends and teachers. She’s been talking a lot now and her speech is just fine. We haven’t notice her stammer in a while now! Thank you so much for your help with her! It would never have been possible to get this far without your guidance.”

    Mr. Levis has come up with some great ideas that will make a huge difference in our son’s ability to communicate. He is by far the most caring and invested speech pathologist our son has had at school.
