Melanie made speech therapy personal and engaging while targeting areas that helped improve my skills and function, as well as increasing my level of confidence. I’m so grateful for the services she provided to me and would recommend her to anyone seeking therapy services.


Melanie Stinnett has an excellent depth of knowledge in the full variety of speech and language concerns faced by children and adults. She is a high quality provider who strives to ensure each client’s treatment plan is individualized to meet the needs of the client and family.

Dr. Linda Barboa (author of Stars in Her Eyes)

Since we started bringing our child to TheraCare, we have seen vast improvements in her speech intelligibility. Melanie, owner and Speech Pathologist, has devised a program that caters to our child’s personal needs and speech goals. After two years in less successful speech programs, we have been amazed at the rapid pace of improvement our child is making at TheraCare. Melanie is not only wonderful at interacting with our child but genuinely celebrates with us in the successes, big or small. Her approach is always fun and inviting and for our family, TheraCare has provided the best approach for our child’s needs.
