The OAK Method
At OAK we pride ourselves in providing your children with the most innovative, and research-based therapy approaches to best support your child. Using our One of A Kind Method, our clinicians will prioritize making your child feel loved, cared, and safe while using play and movement-based activities to promote life-long learning.
Our 7 Pillars
Unlike other therapy centers, schools and outpatient hospitals, your child is not and will not be a productivity number in a spreadsheet. We take time to REALLY get to know your child, to design objectives that fit your child and family, and to create a therapeutic relationship that benefits your child. We will follow your child’s interests in order to motivate and give him/her the tools to reach his/her fullest potential.
As a boutique therapy center, we take pride in holding an open line of communication with parents. In traditional therapy services, staff is often overworked and overbooked leaving very little time to carry on strategies into the home environment. At OAK Therapy we believe home is the most important environment to carry on and generalize speech and language goals. Therefore, we pride ourselves in being in constant communication with parents in order to better serve our patients.
Our staff is trained by the most internationally well-known providers/resources in order to better serve your children. Enrolling in evidence-based training/certifications allow our staff to obtain a well-rounded education on the many areas of treatment involved in the science of speech language pathology.

We are not here to “cure”, “heal” or “fix” your children. In order to achieve long-lasting results, therapy must be consistent, motivating, engaging, and parents must be active members in the therapeutic process. We are here to give your child the tools to reach his/her fullest potential, whatever that may be. At OAK Therapy, we will design reachable goals for your child. We will support your child and give him/her and you the tools to generalize the objectives into the home and school environment.
At OAK Therapy, we want your children to feel safe, respected and motivated. When children do not feel safe, their automatic physiological reaction is to go into “fight or flight” resulting in crying, avoidance, escaping/eloping, anxiety, etc which ultimately negatively impacts the learning process. Instead, we work hard on making sure your child feels safe, relaxed and ready to learn and make new connections in their developing brains. Teaching through affect means we take time to explore the world as they see it, it means we won’t invade their personal space, instead we let them invite us into their space, it means we follow their lead, it means we work hard on establishing a nurturing dynamic that fosters learning.
Scientific data has shown that parents are the best therapists! At OAK Therapy, we welcome parents to join our sessions, we coach them and through our open-line of communication we have them watch live videos of the sessions and/or send them videos after the sessions for them to mimic the therapy strategies in the home environment.
We firmly believe that energized, well-rested and cared therapists are the BEST therapists!. Our job places high physical, emotional, and cognitive demands on our therapists. Therefore, we protect them, we cherish them and we ensure we avoid burnout. Unlike other therapy centers, schools, and outpatient hospitals we ensure our staff is not overbooked. In our experience, 4-5-hours of direct treatment is our maximum limit in order to maintain happy, well-balanced, and energized therapeutic sessions. Therefore, we ensure our therapists work a maximum of 5-direct hours with children/parents.
