Expressive Connections was established in 2009 in order to meet the growing needs of families in and around Pasadena and the Los Angeles region.  We have remained involved in many community organizations, such as Autism Speaks and the Ronald McDonald House, to support our special needs community and we believe in putting our hearts into what we do!

Our team is made up of clinicians that specialize in a variety of speech, language and

swallowing disorders to best serve our clients' needs.   In order to continue to

develop new clinicians of excellence, we are a teaching institution associated

with several California universities.  Additionally, we are able to serve our

diverse community of clients speaking English, Korean, Spanish, Farsi,

Armenian and Mandarin. 


We believe in taking the time to plan our sessions carefully, counsel, and

give resources that will help each client continue to progress beyond the

time spent with us.  We don't believe anyone is worth giving up on.  We

don't throw in the towel, but rather we research more, we dig for

solutions, and we keep moving forward!

With over 10 years as a practice, we have established ourselves as a leader in our

community and have received multiple awards for our work.  The therapeutic relationships that we forge with our clients make the difference in success, motivation, and experience.  We look forward to many more years having the opportunity to change lives.


Our mission is to  inspire hope and improve the health, and well-being of our clients and families by providing a  positive, warm and supportive environment and the best care to each patient through integrated clinical practice, holistic methods, education, and research.  Success is supported by minimizing limitations and maximizing strengths so that our clients can live their lives to the fullest capacity.
