Liane received her Master’s of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from the University of Alberta in 2013. Since that time, she has worked as a speech-language pathologist at a local school division with preschoolers with communication delays and disorders, with Grade 1-12 students focusing on language skills, and with Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing students. Liane has a particular interest in supporting those who have been diagnosed with, or are suspected of having, Selective Mutism.
She has worked with preschool through to adulthood in her private practice, and is passionate about helping her clients to reach their full potential. Liane values collaborating with her clients, their families and other professionals to set functional targets for them to achieve their communication goals. She approaches therapy by building on her clients’ strengths to increase their skills, and further empower them in their learning and development.
When she is not helping others develop their communication skills, Liane is busy travelling the world and baking tasty treats. She is an avid yogi, and loves any opportunity to incorporate yoga into a therapy session. Recently, she has discovered an interest in gardening and, as world travel has paused, has begun exploring the world of plants and flowers.
Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.Fred Rogers
