Tim is committed to the pursuit of effective treatment for stuttering. He has appeared on many television and radio programs in the Atlanta area educating on the early detection and treatment of fluency disorders. When not working one-on-one with his clients, Tim may be found delivering workshops nationally and internationally.
Tim offers leading edge stuttering therapy for all ages. Early intervention can often stop, or greatly minimize, the potential impact of stuttering. For older children and adults who have often developed anxiety related to their stuttering, Tim delivers cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) often missing in other therapies. If you are an adult who gave up on speech therapy, know that new solutions are waiting for you. See adult success stories on this web site.
