Our Story

Life can send delightful surprises when you least expect it. When our children were little, we met at a nursing mother’s support group, finding out very serendipitously that we had a lot in common, including being Speech-Language Pathologists. We slowly began to know each other through other chance meetings at the local grocery store and various children’s activities. Eventually we decided to join forces and talents and create what is now Mariposa Therapy Services.

 

Our combined skills and training have created a unique professional synergy that continues to grow and evolve organically over time. Kristin has a background in work with cochlear implants, early intervention, K-8 schools, apraxia, feeding, and adult neuro rehab. Danielle has extensive experience with high-functioning ASD, social communication differences due to giftedness, adolescent social language, K-12 schools, childhood language impairments, and leadership. We use this combined knowledge base to guide our vision to help support our clinicians as well as the clients we serve.

 

If you or your child need speech and language, physical, or occupational therapy, we don’t want you to go through it alone.
