Meet Ariella Kaplan
My journey to becoming an SLP began at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where I received my B.A in communication sciences and disorders. Afterwards, I completed my master's degree in speech and language pathology at the University of Georgia. I have worked for 10 years as a speech pathologist in a variety of settings including a high school, acute care, and post-acute/outpatient rehabilitation. I gained the most experience working at the Shepherd Center where my passion for helping the brain injury population grew. I started my private practice to provide access to continued services within the comfort of my clients' homes.
I provide evidence-based intervention while placing high importance on the clients' values and choices. Collaboration is always at the center of the client-therapist relationship. It is important to me that my clients and their families feel comfortable and heard. It is never too late after an injury to see progress or make changes. I strive to instill hope and develop a therapy plan that allows you to identify and meet your goals.
When I'm not working, I'm home with my husband, spending time with my two children, and taking our two Australian Shepherds on walks. We all enjoy spending time in our neighborhood parks and farmers markets.
