About the Owner

Katie Stuepfert, MS, CCC-SLP

Pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist

Katie is a licensed speech-language pathologist who specializes in serving very young children.  She has particular clinical interests in working with children who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, late talkers, phonological impairments and bilingualism.  She is also passionate about ensuring that children are appropriately evaluated so that they receive the best supports for their unique needs. 

We strongly believe that children develop best when their parents gain the confidence and competence necessary to support their child's development in daily routines.  We are passionate about play-based, family-centered intervention.  We honor our clients' strengths and interests, and celebrate all progress.
