who we are

Theresa transitioned to working as Human Resources for SCSS in September 2019 and carries over this roll with SMSS. She worked in retail management for over 20 years and has experience in store operations, human resources and monitoring compliance standards.  Previous to this position, she was a speech-language pathology assistant for SCSS since 2016.  Theresa graduated with an  Associate of Applied Science – Speech-Language Pathology Assistant Degree from FTCC in 2011 and especially loved working with 2 to 7 year old children.  

Theresa enjoys helping people grow and develop the skills they need to succeed. She is missing her time working with toddlers, so she may sit on the floor and play with a child in the waiting room when she is in the office. In her free time she likes to read, garden, volunteer at her church and work on projects around the house.  

Stacey has worked many jobs, from quality control labs, research and retail to different library positions. Originally from Michigan, she has lived all over the Midwest, and East coast. She has been married for 26 years and has 4 children. She is an avid reader who loves historical fiction and is a prolific quilter.

WE BELIEVE IN INDIVIDUALIZED TREATMENT AND FUN AND ENGAGING THERAPY THAT INCLUDES BOTH THE CHILD AND THE PARENT FROM BEGINNING TO END.

our approach

We are a three clinicians that are passionate about providing the best quality therapy possible. We love learning about and implementing new treatment methods and bringing all we have to offer to you and your child. We strongly believe in hiring only the best and most motivated professionals to represent our company and to provide unparalleled services to our patients. 

Each child is unique and may not respond to one single therapy approach. At SMSS, we let the child guide the session and we create an individualized approach tailored to your child's one of a kind challenges, your family, and your culture.
