“Irene is very creative and energetic which reflects in her sessions. She is up to date with treatment trends and research to share these with families and use them with her patients. Irene is bilingual in Spanish and English which is an added bonus and lots of families love her, not just mine for the difference she has made by teaching her knowledge to help our children improve.
I highly recommend Irene!”

Irene at Brainstorm is one of the most generous and giving human beings I ever met. She leads with the perfect balance of professionalism and warmth that assures you that children are getting the best care and with love. Irene treats children and families like they are her own. She seeks out ways to help pulling from all resources available to meet the needs of the child. I highly recommend Irene for therapeutic intervention and translation services.
She is absolutely the best!
" I'm very happy with the success and ongoing progress that I have experienced with BrainStorm Speech Therapy from day 1. I've been taking Myofunctional Therapy for about 9 weeks and I notice evident changes and improvement. Now I can breathe thru the nose and my mouth is not open all the time. My oral awareness, strength, and coordination are much better and I can successfully chew my food.
Estoy muy contenta con el éxito y el progreso continuo que he experimentado con la Terapia Miofuncional en BrainStorm desde el día 1. He estado tomando terapia durante aproximadamente 9 semanas y he notado cambios y mejoras evidentes. Mi conciencia oral, fuerza y coordinación son mucho mejores y puedo masticar con éxito mi comida. Ahora puedo respirar por la nariz y mi boca no está abierta todo el tiempo.
Muchas gracias Irene y BrainStorm!"

"We have nothing but wonderful things to say about Irene - to us, she is one of those people that you are grateful to have in your life.
When we first reached out to her our 2 year old had no words and we were anxious to find help. At the same time, we wanted to make sure to find the right therapist.
From the very beginning Irene was very attentive to our concerns and fears but also incredibly empathetic and kind. She did not rush into making assumptions but instead listened and took the time to learn about our little one.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we had to follow an online model, which meant she focused on coaching us parents. Through careful guidance Irene got our little boy to meet all goals and objectives within the timeline she had set for him. Today, our precious boy has many many words (both in English and Spanish), is incredibly social and happy.
And, while we recently moved out of town we continue working with Irene because we trust her.
In fact, we believe Irene is not only instrumental for our little one's speech development but also for our development as parents.
If you are looking for a compassionate and exceptional professional make sure to contact her!

"It is an absolute pleasure for me to recommend Irene. She is an excellent speech-language pathologist as well as an extremely knowledgeable and experienced professional. Our son is bilingual and was experiencing language difficulties/delays at the age of 4.3. We talked to different pathologists, but no one gave us the full confidence to work with them, and also the fact she is bilingual and very related to both of our cultures, gave us the confidence to start working with her right away. Since the initial meeting, Irene was both very thorough and approachable to our son, so we could see that she was going to make a significant impact on his speech. Our son just turned 5 this month and he has made great strides in all his speech and language comprehension. Speech therapy with Irene has not only helped my son's communication, but she has also taught us as parents, methods that we can apply daily to improve his speech at home and the same to his preschool teachers. Irene creates a very fun, warm, and relaxed environment, she has a great connection with kids from the first moment that they are together, as in fact, our son is always excited to see and “play” with Irene. Her great teaching skills allow her to use any mood or behavior the child is exhibiting for learning and language. Her approach and techniques are amazing as she carefully assesses our son's strengths and weaknesses in order to craft the optimal program. All of this has allowed our son to learn in a quick, efficient, and engaging manner and helped him expand his knowledge and social skills."
