A unique empowering approach to speech therapy for children and adults
Therapy usually begins with parent education and training in communication styles, and will be adjusted to meet the specific needs of each child and their family.
Therapy involves education regarding stuttering, training in speech modification strategies, and also emphasizes the support of a child’s self-esteem and confidence.
Consultations are available and are individualized to each client’s request. Elena is available for consultations with school districts, hospitals, regional special education service districts, other professionals and individual cases.
Elena also provides therapy for children, adolescents and adults with speech articulation disorders and voice disorders with an aim to rehabilitate, enhance and protect your voice.
Elena has extensive experience in conducting workshops, seminars, and in-service training for professional groups, working with groups to tailor content and format to meet their specific needs.
“Dear Elena, I just wanted to thank you for all the hard work and effort you put into Mendy. You've made an unbelievable difference in how Mendy deals with his stuttering, his attitude towards it, his self-esteem and his growth. He is such a different person today, than what he was when we met you. The caring, admiration and respect you have for your young clients really shows in everything you do. A speech therapist like you only comes along once in a lifetime.”
Parent of a 6 Year Old
“Our 6 year old daughter was having a problem with stuttering since the age of 4. She had been working with 2 therapists prior but her stuttering always came back when she was excited or nervous. She started seeing Elena and within weeks there was marked improvement. Elena’s approach is very welcoming and her techniques helped keep our daughter interested while learning. The “homework” she suggested we do between sessions also helped guide me on how to deal with it in everyday life. Now, just a few months after starting therapy with Elena, her stuttering is almost non-existent.”
“Elena Caffentzis has worked on and off with my 12 year old son who stutters for several years. Throughout this time she has always been able to give him the exact help and tools he has needed, at any given time. She has this marvelous ability to decipher the problem at hand and offer the support and guidance that is needed for each individual situation. And she does it with such ease.”

“Working with Elena has had a tremendously positive impact on Emily's confidence as well as her ability and willingness to communicate. It is a great comfort to know that our daughter will have the tools she needs to manage and, hopefully one day, ultimately overcome her disfluency. Emily truly enjoys her time with Elena. Elena's patience, compassion and fun personality make for therapy sessions which Emily looks forward to.”

“Thank you for making a difference in our son Jacob’s life. When our son was 4 years old, he was evaluated and diagnosed by three private practice and highly certified speech therapists to have dysfluent speech and be at risk for continued stuttering. We are so grateful for having Elena Caffentzis to help our son. It WORKED!!! He is turning 10 in February and he is totally fluent.”
