If you are a person who stutters (stammers), do words sometimes feel like "brick walls," even before you try to say them? Do you repeat, prolong, or force on initial consonants?  Do you sometimes choke on words that start with vowels?  Do your blocks get stronger the harder you try to break through them?

Are you able to speak fluently some of the time, but find yourself blocking on words when speech is most important (e.g., introducing yourself, ordering in a restaurant, or talking on the phone or to groups or to authority figures)?

Are you generally fluent when you mouth words silently, when you whisper, and when you sing?

Have you tried various stuttering therapies and fluency-shaping techniques in an effort to stop stuttering, but found them to be ineffective, unnatural sounding, distracting, or too hard to maintain?

Are you reluctant to spend thousands of dollars on stuttering therapy programs or electronic fluency devices that may not really be the "stuttering cure" you were hoping for?

If so, Valsalva Stuttering Therapy may provide the answers you are looking for.  It offers a new opportunity to enjoy easy, effortless speech without drugs, electronic devices, or unnatural-sounding speaking techniques.

I have personally known the agony of stuttering.  After many stuttering therapies failed to help me stop stuttering, I discovered a new approach that dramatically increased my fluency and enabled me to become a successful trial lawyer.  Since 1985, I have been active in the stuttering self-help movement, sharing my ideas and leading support group meetings for people who stutter.  To further my goal of helping those who stutter, I became a licensed and ASHA-certified speech-language pathologist in 2010. 

Valsalva Stuttering Therapy, in its current form, has been developed through actual clinical experience, experimentation, and practice-based evidence, involving the participation of more than one hundred persons who stutter from all over the world.

I offer Valsalva Stuttering Therapy in Bala Cynwyd, PA, (near Philadelphia) and by video conferencing over the Internet (depending on your location and subject to applicable law).

Free consultations are offered to persons interested in therapy.
