BENEFITS OF SPEECH CLASS
Meet Your Therapist:
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Registered Play Therapist. I have a private practice at Sync Counseling Center in Sierra Madre. I received my Masters of Arts in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Clinical Psychology, Marriage Family Therapy from Azusa Pacific University. My specialty is to work with families that have a loved one(s) with Autism or special needs and be a support to siblings. Furthermore, I work with children that have behavioral issues, premarital couples, individuals, couples, expecting couples, families, as well as women struggling with postpartum depression, anxiety and parenting. I have a specialized play therapy room dedicated to my work with children. In addition to my private practice, I am a speaker. I present on various topics regarding mental health.
Since public speaking is so important and a part of my work, I began a speech class in the Fall of 2022. The purpose of this class is to help increase children’s self-esteem and self-confidence through public speaking. Throughout the course, the children learn how to use different tones, pitches and gestures. They learn the importance of maintaining eye contact with the audience, while reciting their speeches.
