Find out why Simply Communication is simply the right choice for your speech, feeding, and myofunctional needs.
We have spent the last 2 1/2 years working very closely with Abby Marcus, or as our daughter affectionately referred to her as Miss Abby & I cannot sing her praises enough. When we began this journey, we knew we wanted to have someone, who our then 3 year trusted and would learn from, in order to make the progress necessary to encourage her speech. Abby spent each week working to earn our daughter’s trust, building on each lesson, getting to know what worked for her specifically and how to expand on that; as well as informing my husband and myself in great detail of what she was working on and what we could implement during the week. My daughter would look so forward to her weekly meetings with Abby; she thought of it as a play date💕 We just recently finished our last session with Abby and the progress our daughter has made is nothing short of remarkable! We would recommend anyone who is need of speech therapy to see Abby Marcus; she is AMAZING & we are forever grateful to her for helping our daughter discover her voice💗 Abby Marcus is passionate about what she does as a speech therapist and it shows in everything she has to offer!
When I first sat down with Abby Marcus I was already dealing with a myriad of chronic health ailments that had destroyed my quality of life. Insomnia, headaches, fatigue, anxiety… it got so bad I had left work and put all my focus on getting better. Something was wrong, very wrong - but not a single doctor had been able to identify what it was. They chalked it up to anxiety and wanted to prescribe medication. But I knew this wasn’t a viable option long-term and there had to be some explanation for all the problems I was experiencing. Getting in touch with Abby was a crucial step in getting to the bottom of it.
Everything is connected. The way we breathe, the way we use our tongues, the way we sit and stand. All these things guide our craniofacial development in one way or another, which ultimately affects our airway and sleep and how we feel the next morning. For some people (particularly those without tongue ties) it comes more naturally than for others. I was one of the unlucky ones, and working with Abby I was able to understand how a tethered tongue had led to a cascade of developmental problems and compensations that brought me to where I am today. Abby’s guidance with my tongue tie release and myofunctional therapy has been an instrumental part in my recovery and I am so glad she encouraged me to go this route.
Abby is a tremendous researcher. If you are willing, she will share countless resources that guide her philosophy to health and wellness. Not many doctors take the time to educate their patients, and fewer still are as supportive and understanding as Abby throughout the process. You can tell she cares and she will work with you to achieve your health goals. Thank you Abby and team! You are doing really important work and changing people's lives one at a time.
We were referred to Michelle by a well respected pediatric dentist for myofunctional therapy for my 6 month old son due to lip ties and a posterior tongue tie. Michelle was very approachable, genuine, and professional. She allowed us as much time as we needed for questions and made sure we were comfortable with the therapy plan before leaving her office each visit. She is incredibly knowledgable and skilled at what she does. She put us at ease during a stressful time. We could not recommend her more!
“It has been a pleasure working with both these women! I find that they are knowledgeable and honest in recommendations. Both ladies are very accommodating to issues that arise. For example, Michelle recently had a baby and still took the time to assess my son and go over exercises and check wound healing for a tie revision. I cannot appreciate enough the time and individual care these ladies have given my family!.”
Working with Michelle was the best part of our child's lip and tongue tie revisions. She was friendly, professional, made me feel very at ease while going through a stressful situation related to our child's breastfeeding issues. Would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for oral motor or feeding therapy.
Michelle is very skilled at what she does. My husband and I enjoyed working with her with our son prior to and after tongue and lip tie releases in order for our child to overcome poor tongue function. She is very personable and also very reasonable in expectations. Michelle didn't require excessive appointments. She gave therapy exercises to do at home with our son in between appointments which helped us be more involved and help our son at home. Michelle prioritizes patients above business growth.
“Simply Communication is amazing – they recognized opportunities to improve my son’s speech from just a picture – yep- a picture of him sleeping and recognized that we could correct his sleep habits (open mouth) which would then impact his speech. We’re just beginning our journey and are looking forward to seeing advancements in his speech!.”
We want to thank you for guiding us and giving us hope this past year with our daughter. She has truly come a long way from her initial evaluation. You've always listened to our concerns and we have never felt brushed off or ignored. While addressing our concerns you manage to empower us as parents by educating us. A year ago we felt like our lives were out of control, helpless, and indecisive with everything. We couldn't even think about the future and would never have thought our daughter would have progressed as quickly as she did. We are very grateful to you.
