Learning what to do is easy.
Actually doing it is a lot harder.

Our individual speech therapy and communication skills training focuses on achieving real-world changes. We emphasize an outcome-oriented approach over diagnosis-driven models. This means we aren't afraid to go outside the box or try something new, if it means achieving what matters the most to you. We define success based on your definition of success. Not sure what that means for you? Then we'll figure it out together.

Speech Therapy and Skill Topics

“Working with Speech IRL gave me the confidence to get up and speak in front of any audience.  I am no longer concerned with how my words will come out when I speak due to the time Rachel invested with me.  I have had so many people state that they notice a difference in my speaking and have commended me on how well I present in front of an audience.  I have already referred someone else to Speech IRL because of your great work and my results. Thanks!”

“As a lawyer, communication is critical. I sought out speech IRL because I was concerned that I wasn’t effectively communicating with clients and judges. In my sessions with Courtney, she explained the different aspects of effective communication, and we worked on various exercises to target those areas where I could improve. The exercises worked. And more than anything, they restored my confidence. I recommend speech IRL, and Courtney, to any professional who is looking to become a more effective communicator.”

I know I need help, but I don't know what kind

Many clients walk through our door not knowing what the problem is. They just know that there is a problem and they want something to be different. That's enough for us to get started! In the vast majority of cases, we're able to identify an underlying cause or explanation for why you're experiencing certain difficulties and create a plan accordingly. Even if there isn't a clearly identifiable "why", though, change is always possible. Communication is a skill, and all skills are learned. We'll figure it out together.
