A message from our Cristienne Colip, M.S., CCC-SLP, Clinical Director
My interest in speech and language goes back to my own childhood. I can remember making sense of the world by talking about it. I believe in the power of communication and appreciate the effectiveness of expressing oneself with intelligence and simplicity. This led me to the field of Speech-Language Pathology and the study of human communication disorders. I received my Master of Science degree from the John A. Burns School of Medicine at the University of Hawaii, am certified to practice by the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association and am licensed by the state of California.
As our clinic has grown, like-minded dedicated colleagues have joined our team and we then added the allied specialty of occupational therapy as a compliment to addressing the needs of our pediatric population. By understanding and developing the relationship between self-regulation and the ability to learn and thrive, we uniquely craft effective intervention plans that serve to empower both child and parent. Together with the support of an all-star administrative staff, our team is ready to guide, inform and ultimately serve children and families across our state.
SpeechRighter Plus is in-network with Blue Shield, Kaiser, Optum/United Health Care, BSBM and Health Net. We have close relationships with Dignity Health, Sutter Health, and Palo Alto Medical Foundation pediatricians and clinicians, and can often obtain single case agreements with Anthem, and Aetna Insurance to access speech and occupational therapy benefits for your particular health insurance plan. Please contact our office to see how we can help you access your insurance benefits.
