Jacqueline – Registered Speech Language Pathologist

I graduated in 2008 from the University of British Columbia with a Master’s degree in Speech Language Pathology. I am currently registered with the College of Speech and Hearing Health Professionals of British Columbia (CSHBC) and the Alberta College of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (ACSLPA), as well as the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). I have taken additional training in myofunctional therapy, Orton-Gillingham reading intervention, Natural Language Acquisition (NLA), Estill Voice, Palin PCI, counselling, motivational interviewing, and drama therapy. I use an eclectic approach when treating communication challenges, drawing heavily on creative arts therapy approaches and a lens of neurodiversity. In my spare time, I enjoy music, nature, and homeschooling my two children.

I have previous experience working in both the private and public sectors, including child development centres, health units, hospitals, and private elementary schools. Finally accepting that I never quite fit in to any of these settings (I am an introvert, free spirit, have chronic big picture thinking, and loathe copious meetings and administrative detail), I started my own private practice. My goal was to help people who were willing to make changes (any size), ask questions, and cultivate resiliency in the process. During the therapeutic journey I consider us a team, with myself acting as co-pilot and you or your child in the driver’s seat. Voce Sola is latin for Solo Voice – it is my hope and prayer that each of my clients will find their own unique voice and will have the courage to speak, sing, and laugh freely. I look forward to working with you.
