My Story

As a child who grew up with Spanish as my first language, I am aware of the challenges children face trying to adapt to an English-speaking world. I am deciding to pursue Speech-Language Pathology with a bilingual specialization to uplift communities who lack access of and representation within our services.

My Eyas Landing

I will be a TA for this year’s summer camps!

My Advocacy

I am an ally of DREAMers, Black Lives Matter, Free Palestine Movement, Pride, etc.

My Professional Goals

  1. As someone on track to becoming an SLP, I am motivated to serve Spanish speaking communities. I aim to expand the field and help develop new frameworks that are culturally and linguistically competent. I am also passionate about how mental health intertwines with these services, and how we as clinicians can best support families as they go through emotionally taxing processes.

Eyas Landing is a therapy clinic with a mission to provide evidence-based and family-centered therapy services for children, adolescents, and their families. The primary goal is to deliver relationship-based interventions within the most natural environments and to empower families to reach their full potential. To achieve this goal, our highly educated, compassionate staff dedicates time and expertise to create experiences that maximize therapeutic outcomes. The strength, determination, and perseverance of our clients are evident as they succeed in therapy, and ultimately in their daily lives.

Eyas Landing offers a wide range of comprehensive services including Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, ABA Therapy, Social Work, Family Therapy, and Neuropsych testing. Services are provided throughout the Chicagoland area via Telehealth, In-Home, and in our state of the art clinic.
