Jeness believes that speech-language therapy should be functional and collaborative, in order to help individuals meet their goals and succeed in communicating in all contexts that are important to them. According to Jeness,  speech-Language pathology is the ideal area where her “interest in language and passion for helping others intersect.”

While studying for her master’s, she had the opportunity to gain experience with various clients, but discovered a keen interest in working with children and adults who have experienced acquired or traumatic brain injury. Her other areas of interest include speech and fluency.

Jeness sees clients in Columbia’s central Vancouver office as well as in our satellite office in Port Moody. She also meets with a number of her clients virtually and can travel to various locations within the Fraser Health region! Please enquire with us for more information.
