Our therapists are experienced not only with all areas of their specialty, but with many diagnoses.  

Below is a brief description of each therapist, and their journey that led them to Tiny Toes Therapy:


 

"The limits of my language means the limits of my world"     
~Ludwig Wittgenstein

Eleanor first began her journey by receiving a B.A. in Elementary Education as well as a B.A. in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD).  After achieving an M.A. in CSD, she worked with children in specialized schools, primarily with those diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders. After moving to Virginia, she worked at the Kennedy Krieger Institute to perfect her skills with those displaying intensive behaviors coupled with strong communication needs.  She then became a Clinical Director of a private pediatric clinic before opening her own practice. She has a passion for the pediatric population, as well as communication, and is proud to offer Northern Virginia a team of highly-qualified professionals.

"Children are not things to be molded, but are people to be unfolded."      -Jess Lair

Caitlin P., M.S., CCC-SLP

Caitlin studied psychology at Eastern University and after graduating worked in schools and homes as a Behavioral Aide and in Early Intervention home health. These positions gave Caitlin insight into how challenges of communication can create negative behaviors and even strain family relationships and friendships. This lead her to studying Communication Sciences and Disorders at Idaho State University.  Caitlin enjoys traveling and going on adventures with her husband and their 2 young kids.



"Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning.  But for children, play is serious learning."     -Mr. Rogers

Angelina C., M.S. OTR/L

Angelina graduated from Eastern Michigan University in 1993. She has worked with children for most of her career because, "They make me 'think outside the box.' Children are funny, challenging, and are completely honest."  When she has free time, Angelina loves to be outdoors, spend time with family, and continually learn new skills.

Lauren B., M.S., CCC-SLP

Lauren began her journey in speech therapy at the National Institutes of Health as a Post-Baccalaureate Fellow where her experience allowed her to integrate theory with practice given her exposure to a variety of speech and swallowing pathology assessments and management of patients in a clinical setting, which includes presenting a research study at the New England Science Symposium at Harvard University.  Lauren loves treating children and fostering relationships with their families. She enjoys working in an outpatient setting because of the ability to work with children from diverse backgrounds who have a wide range of communication disorders. Lauren realizes the importance of early intervention for children at risk for communication delays and disorders.   She is dedicated to the change that occurs when the right therapeutic plan and  positive relationship merge.  Lauren values sharpening her discipline and stretching her intellectual curiosity, and is pursuing her Clinical Doctorate.  Beyond the patients Lauren serves, she is committed to helping the greater community; She enjoys leading lupus fundraisers, working at the Boys & Girls Club, and tutoring at-risk youth.
