My name is Ann-Marie Dykstra and I’m a Speech-Language Pathologist (more commonly called Speech Therapist) certified with the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA). I’m proudly based in Tavares, FL and serve the wider Lake County region.
I received my Masters in Speech-Language Pathology in 2010 from San Diego State University, while simultaneously being fortunate to intern at the VA Hospital. It was here I had truly found my calling working with the medically complex adult population.
I then went on to complete my Clinical Fellowship at Mission Hospital, a large Level II trauma center in southern California. After 10 years working at various medical facilities across the United States, I decided to take the skills I acquired and open up my own mobile speech therapy practice for adults serving Lake County, Florida. My hope is to bring much needed specialized treatment and healing for those in need of our services.
The Best Speech Therapy for Adults in Lake County, FL
Cobalt Therapy is a privately owned mobile speech therapy service for adults. We are currently the only company in Lake County that provides valuable diagnostic measures for voice and swallowing disorders through use of flexible endoscopy called FEES (Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing). Not only do we offer invaluable diagnostic services, we also provide in-home therapy to residents of Lake County, Florida.
Our licensed speech-language pathologists specialize in swallowing and voice disorders, as well as cognitive communication difficulties. We offer unique services such as our mobile FEES unit, electronic stimulation (or e-stim) for swallow therapy, and LSVT LOUD for improved intelligibility and volume.
Communication and swallowing disorders are disruptive. They not only affect the lives of the diagnosed, they impact families, caregivers, careers and aspirations. That’s why we offer in-home care to ensure that the therapy we deliver is right for you.
We work with compassion, expertise, and the shared goal of tailoring speech therapy to your needs and lifestyle.
We accept original Medicare Plans and out-of-network Insurance. Please see our services pages to learn more about how we can help.
