Speech Pathologist in Houston

Brooke Andrews, M.A CCC-SLP

I’ve been working as Speech Pathologist specializing in 0-3 population for 11 years. My background is in Early Intervention, and I also spent several years working for Durham Public Schools Preschool Program, I started The Speech Dynamic in 2016 when I noticed the need for boutique, play-based speech therapy tailored to meet the needs of littles and their families.  My specialties include expressive language delays (late talkers), myofunctional therapy, and feeding disorders in the 0-5 population.  Last year, my professional experience and experience as a parent collided when my daughter was born and needed Occupational and Physical Therapy and I gained new perspective as a parent on the other side of things. Some of the certifications I hold include TalkTools Level 3, Certified Orofacial Myologist (COM™), Hanen, Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200), Tummy Time Method ™ and Certified Lactation Counselor.

Claire Bokal, MS CCC-SLP

Hi, my name is Claire! I am a bilingual speech-language pathologist, MS. CCC SLP. I am a member of ASHA and am CPR certified. I grew up in El Paso, Texas where I found my love of speech therapy shadowing at hospitals, working at a Down Syndrome Achievement Center, and performing research at the University of El Paso. I received my bachelor’s in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Baylor University. I loved Baylor so much that I stayed there for my master’s. I moved to Houston for my medical externship to work at Memorial Hermann Hospital. I am passionate about pediatrics and love working with children. I currently work with kids of all ages from a few months old to 18 years old. I provide assessments and treatments in many areas. I have experience working with children who have language disorders, articulation disorders, fluency disorders, pragmatic disorders, learning disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, and global delays. I have experience working with young children and performing pre-language therapy. I work with children who are bilingual in Spanish and English. When I am not having a blast in therapy, I enjoy taking walks and spending time with my family–

Katrina Koch, MS CCC-SLP

Hi, my name is Katrina! I earned my Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of Texas at Austin. I then remained at UT to complete my Master of Arts in Speech Language Pathology. I have always loved working with kids and was able to find my niche in helping children learn to further develop their speech, language, and feeding skills. My clinical experience in pediatrics includes assessment and treatment of expressive/receptive language disorders, speech production errors, fluency disorders, pragmatic disorders, feeding difficulties, and learning disabilities. I have experience working with children of all ages and diagnoses, including Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, and Williams Syndrome. Outside of work, I love to read, spend time with my friends and family, and take long walks down the aisles of Target.
