Genevieve is an experienced speech pathologist who has provided evidence based therapy with children in schools, early learning centres and in private practice.   She is known by others for her bubbly and warm personality and devotes her time to supporting families. She is passionate about empowering parents and carers to connect with the child and supporting the child to reach their full potential. Genevieve utilises extensive clinical knowledge and skills with families, and more recently includes her therapy dog Lincoln to enhance her sessions. Lincoln has a gentle disposition, an incredibly affectionate nature and goofy personality which lends itself quite well to working with children of varying ages.

When Genevieve is not working she enjoys spending time with her family (including her beloved cat Pollyanna), creating delicious food or burning up a sweat at the gym or heading out on an outdoor adventure.

Genevieve has additional training  in a variety of speech pathology programs including:  

  • The Hanen Centre: It Takes Two to Talk Program
  • The Lidcombe Program (stuttering treatment for young children)
  • PECS: Picture Exchange Communication System
  • Cued Articulation
  • SAS: Secret Agent Society
  • DIR Floortime
  • SOS(Sequential, Oral, Sensory) Approach to Feeding
