CPSP – Certified Practising Speech Pathologist
Rochelle graduated from the University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Science majoring in Psychology and a Master of Speech Pathology.
Rochelle has experience working with toddlers through to adults and is most excited about working with pre-school and school aged children. Whilst she works with children to improve their speech and language, she is most passionate about working with those who stutter to increase their fluency. Rochelle loves providing therapy especially for pre-school aged children who stutter and seeing the impact that it has on their communication, wellbeing and overall confidence, as well as the broader positive impact that it has on a child’s family.
Rochelle also has a keen interest in orofacial myology and providing tongue thrust therapy for people of all ages, particularly as she understands the profound impact that a tongue thrust may have on a person’s mouth posture, swallowing and even consequently on their speech and overall health.
As Rochelle is a bilingual Russian speaker, she particularly enjoys working with people from culturally diverse backgrounds and tailoring therapy to the needs of children and their families. She enjoys getting to know children and families and using a child’s interests to make therapy fun and interactive.
Rochelle is a member of the Victorian branch of Speech Pathology Australia as well as the Stuttering Interest Group for Speech Pathologists.
Rochelle is currently taking new clients over the age of three for assessment and therapy of speech sound/phonological disorders, stuttering and orofacial mycology concerns.
