Owner & Registered Speech-Language Pathologist

With over twelve years of experience, Kate has a heart for helping others advance in their communication skills and develop meaningful connections with others. She has experience working in schools, preschools, daycares and has experience partnering with adults, teens and children. 

Kate's personal experience with orthodontic relapse and her daughter's thumb sucking habit led her to the fascinating world of orofacial myology. As well as a master of science degree in speech pathology, she has additional training in PECS, Hanen: It Takes Two to Talk, Reading with TLC, and executive functioning. She has completed a 28-hour course in orofacial myology. Her experience provides her with a compassionate perspective in helping others. She is a mother to four children and has a love for learning that she enjoys sharing with others.
 

In her free time, she enjoys making memories with her family, photography, creating art, and working on home projects.

Kelly (Wun Chin) Chan, MSc, R.SLP
Registered Speech-Language Pathologist

Kelly is a highly empathetic and heart-centered person who is passionate about supporting her clients and their families in building more meaningful and authentic relationships with their loved ones. Connection and transparency are two fundamental values that she holds close to her heart and guide her therapeutic practice. Kelly is a huge advocate for children with diverse communication challenges and believes in supporting them through a trauma-informed and neurodiversity-affirming lens. She has experience working with children of all ages and abilities within a variety of settings including homes, schools, out in the community, and online. In her free time, Kelly enjoys the simple joys of life - sipping on some hot tea, taking walks out in nature, having deep philosophical discussions, and hanging out with close family and friends.

Katherine is a speech-language pathologist who loves what she does. Every time she goes to work she gets to do one of her favourite things: support adults and children in reaching their communication goals while solving communication puzzles! She has experience providing speech-language therapy to students in pre-kindergarten through high school, as well as to adults, and enjoys the diversity of challenges and experiences that speech therapy brings. Her favourite “communication puzzles” involve exploring speech, language, and literacy concerns and the interactions between them to develop the best treatment plans for her clients.

  

Katherine’s therapy approach is holistic and collaborative. She works with her clients to prioritize the goals most important to them. She believes that learning happens best when you are curious, engaged and having fun, and she strives to bring this approach to her sessions. Through a compassionate and calm presence, Katherine invites her clients into a comfortable environment while challenging them to reach their full potential - whether that be in sound production, fluent speech or literacy skills.

 

When she is not seeing clients, Katherine will likely be found releasing her creativity in the kitchen, pushing past her comfort zone at the climbing gym, or experiencing nature in our stunning Rocky Mountains.
