Meet your Speech Therapist
Cecelia Pizano, MS CCC SLP
Speech Language Pathologist
Amplify Speech Therapy was started from the inspiration of creating a workplace where I could deliver the quality of rehabilitative care that I could be proud of. After 18 years of working for large hospital systems across the country, I left PeaceHealth. I wanted to return my focus to individualized therapy. I combine the knowledge I acquired in acute care, my skills in treating the whole person and meeting the patient and family where they are, and the benefits of providing in-home care.
I opened Amplify Speech Therapy in early 2022, providing in-home speech therapy for adults in the greater Eugene-Springfield area and teletherapy across Oregon. I specialize in neurological conditions, such as strokes and Parkinson's disease but have a wide range of experience in all aspects of speech therapy, having worked in inpatient rehabs, long term care units, memory care centers and a few years in pediatric outpatient.
It is Amplify's mission is to empower people with their voice and to make therapy both challenging and something to look forward to.
