My supervisor, Stephanie, has always emphasized an open-door policy, always open to answering any question right away. Stephanie puts the needs of her therapists first, which has allowed me to grow and become the therapist that I want to be. Working with Speak 2 Me, has been an amazing and collaborative experience.

opportunity to gain valuable experience and grow as a clinician. Working with families and
caregivers taught me the importance of a collaborative approach to therapy. This job allowed me to see first-hand the benefits of child-led therapy, while strengthening my therapy routines and tools. While working with Speak 2 me, I was lucky to work alongside a wonderful mentor, Stephanie, who was always willing to share her knowledge and help me reach my full potential.
