Expert Speech-Language Pathology at Live Well Speech Therapy in Utah

Live Well Speech Therapy located in Utah, offers advanced speech-language pathology services (also known as speech therapy) for adults. Our personalized treatment uses evidenced-based practices to help you communicate effectively, manage cognitive changes, swallow more safely, and live more confidently.  Our treatment plans address a variety of conditions including:

  • Aphasia (communication difficulty common after a stroke or traumatic brain injury)
  • Apraxia (difficulty with speech production)
  • Cognitive-Communicative impairments (problem-solving, memory, attention, executive function, visuo-spatial skills, reasoning, judgment)
  • Dysarthria (unclear articulation of speech)
  • Dysphagia (swallow impairment)
  • Dysphonia (vocal changes) caused by Parkinson’s and related diseases 
  • Neurologic language impairments related to cerebral vascular accidents (strokes), traumatic brain injuries, or progressive neurological conditions, such as Parkinson’s Disease

What Sets Live Well Apart From Other Speech Therapy Practices?

Accessible Services

Living with stroke, neurodegenerative diseases, and other conditions can make traveling for therapy challenging. Live Well Speech Therapy will provide treatment in your home, or a designated place in the community to integrate functional activities of daily living.

Specialized Care

I collaborate with the patient and/or caregivers to develop a customized plan of care designed to target the individual needs and daily activities of the client.

Holistic Approach

Health is interconnected among all the systems, and this is taken into account in treatment. An example is that better cognition leads to improved swallow safety, leading to improved respiration, leading to improved energy and functional communication.
