  • About West Coast Stuttering Center

    West Coast Stuttering Center was founded by Bailey Levis, M.S., CCC-SLP, a licensed Speech and Language Pathologist and person who stutters.  Bailey had long wondered about the nature of stuttering, its impact on quality of life, and the clinical aspects of stuttering treatment.  West Coast Stuttering Center is the result of a lifetime of personal and professional inquiry into the nature and treatment of stuttering.

    My Therapeutic Style

    I use a relational and naturalistic approach when providing speech and language therapy. This means that I highly the value the relationship that we develop and that I aim to incorporate speech therapy goals into your everyday life.   I will follow your lead.  When working with children, I use child-directed activities, where your child decides what games, toys or activities to play. During this playtime, I skillfully weave in speech and language goals. After all, children learn best when they play. As much as possible I also like to teach parents and caregivers how they can support their children at home.

    Mission

    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. I focus on helping individuals to share their words without fear or anxiety. My overarching treatment goal is for you to feel understood and to freely engage with the world around you, using words as the building block to an abundant, connected and happy life.
