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

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?
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.
