"My son had been in public school speech therapy for six years and I was beginning to think there were some sounds that his mouth could not physically produce. Trying private therapy was our last hope. I am happy to say that within a few months Loriann had worked with him so successfully that he was pronouncing all sounds correctly. From there it became a matter of practice to make the correct sounds his new habit. The weekly coaching and feedback were exactly what he needed and Loriann kept each visit upbeat and interesting - very important for us as my son was a bit demoralized after the therapy he had received at school. I highly recommend her!" ~L. Logan
"Loriann is exceptional at what she does and a joy to work with! She literally gave me my voice back. Something my ENT thought was not possible. She's the best!!!"
"Loriann at Arise Therapies in Spring Hill is absolutely amazing. My children have been to multiple therapists, having lived in numerous places and we have never found anyone like Loriann. She takes the time with them to thoroughly cover everything and does an excellent job explaining things they learned to me and sends home practice sheets. The skills they learn with the techniques she uses has helped them tremendously and we have seen faster progress with them than any other therapist we have used before. It's a very personal, one on one feeling and I joke with her that when we move again, we have to carry her with us. She treats us like family and my kids love her!"
"As an unfortunate side effect of thyroid surgery, I lost my voice. You never realize how verbal our world is until you can't express yourself. When I started working with pathologist Loriann Schwartz, most of my words were inaudible, breathy and high pitched. It was an effort to talk. She determined the exact method for strengthening my vocal folds and through a series of simple, and sometimes silly exercises, I started to make sound. The progress was amazingly quick. I'm grateful to Loriann for guiding me back to my natural voice. "
