Our therapists all have their own unique qualities that compliment a variety of needs, but we all have one thing in common: to provide the best, most compassionate care to the patients we serve.
Metamorphosis Therapy Group, Inc was founded with the simple notion that progress on speech and language skills should be easily seen- across people the patient interacts with. The patient, therapist, families, teachers, and community members should be able to easily and readily SEE THE CHANGE in the patient- clearer speech, increased confidence, improved language skills to communicate well with peers and excel in all areas. From the early stages in her career, our Founder recognized how powerful positive change can be when patients are matched with competent, caring therapists who are invested in creating those positive and life-impacting changes in their patients. If you are ready to create positive changes in your child’s life, give us a call to see what changes we can create for you and your child. We are confident we will create a CHANGE YOU CAN SEE.

What are the benefits of working with speech language pathologist?
Speech language pathologists are skilled experts in assessing delays or deficits with speech (articulation or speech sound development) and language skills (both understanding and expressive language). A speech language pathologist can provide an in-depth assessment on current speech and language abilities and help to develop a plan to support current skills and teach new skills using research-based methods. Speech therapy can benefit children at any age, but an expert evaluation can help to provide support and strategies to children who are developing speech and language. Don’t wait and see if your child “catches up,” schedule a free consultation today.
