Our Logo's Meaning

Branching Tree Therapy, LLC believes that each child requires crucial foundational language skills (roots) that are shaped (hand) by an individualized plan (branch) in order to promote the child's voice through the various modalities (leaves and speaking bubbles) offered by our clinicians.

 

Our therapists work alongside a variety of cultural backgrounds, diagnosis, and severities. Each Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) is closely observed and implemented according to the child and family's needs and concerns.

Verenice Meza, M.A. CCC-SLP, Owner

Hello World! I am a music driven speech-language therapist that enjoys learning nursery rhymes for fun. I am married and have a golden retriever puppy who require lots of attention. What will I do when I have kiddos of my own? Will I have enough attention for them all? I enjoy giving my undivided attention to the person who sits across from me. Most often, my attention goes towards little individuals 18 months to 36 months, whom also enjoy nursery rhymes. I spend my free time surrounded by family and friends and enjoy exploring the world around me, especially food. 

"The best way to predict your future is to create it."

Yazmin Martinez, Program Director

Hello, my name is Yazmin but everyone calls me Yaz. I am married and have a beautiful two-year old daughter who keeps me busy. Yes, I talk about her all day! The best part is that she's a mini version of me. I enjoy helping others and being part of new beginnings. I love living life to the fullest and enjoying the little things. I like singing, dancing, and making others smile. I love traveling because it gives me the opportunity to meet new people and learn about a different cultures.

Hello, my name is Elizabeth and I am a Speech-Language Pathologist assistant. I love working with kiddos, especially toddlers. I am blessed with 3 wonderful kids and a loving husband. We enjoy camping trips and spending time together during our family movie nights. I always knew I wanted to work with kids, but I was not sure how. When my son was sent to the regional center for speech services, I was introduced to this amazing career. I knew exactly where I was meant to be. My favorite part of my job is witnessing kids say their first words and watching them grow. I work under an amazing supervisor and as a dedicated team, we give our best to each child.

Manuela Gabbaypour , Speech-Language Pathologist 

My name is Manoela but you can call me Rana. I am a single mother to my 2-year-old dog, Bo. He is the apple of my eye and my best friend. I am an introverted person and can find it difficult to engage in small talk; however, I thoroughly enjoy deep conversations about the meaning of life. I’ve found my calling helping children communicate their wants, needs, and ideas, and yes - even social pleasantries and you guessed it - small talk! 

 

“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough”                                                                             -Albert Einstein

Robin Lacson, Speech-Language Pathologist

 Hello! My name is Robin and I am a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP), who is dedicated in making a difference in our community. I was born and raised in California. I come from a family of six and have two fur babies. My favorite part of being an SLP is seeing growth in a child’s communication skills. I have always enjoyed working with children because, besides their cuteness, I like to be creative and incorporate fun activities to bring a smile to their face! My interests outside of my job would be spending time with family, friends, and trying new plant-based foods. I look forward to getting to know each family and provide the best quality services each child deserves.

Music and Movement 

Exposing children to music during early development helps them learn the sounds and meanings of words. Dancing to music helps children build motor skills. For children and adults, music helps strengthen memory skills.

 

Our teacher will lead you both to wiggle, sing, and enjoy the music and movement and activities together.
