Cecelia Pizano, MS CCC - SLP
Medical Speech Language Pathologist
"Through Amplify Speech Therapy, I strive not only to amplify the voices of those I serve, but also to create a space where each individual's unique journey is embraced, celebrated and propelled toward empowerment!"
Amplify Speech Therapy was born from the inspiration of my patients. I am moved by the determination and grit of each of my clients and their family and caregivers. And after 20 years of working for large hospital systems across the country, Amplify emerged as my commitment to be impactful, meaningful and inclusive of the people I serve. That is why goals and treatment plans are designed to match the unique circumstances of each individual.
A crucial aspect of making speech therapy impactful is making it accessible. Home visits for available to adults in the greater Eugene-Springfield area who face challenges commuting regularly to and from medical appointments. Amplify also offers online speech therapy (teletherapy) across Oregon, reaching out to rural communities where access to healthcare services is limited. Because everyone deserves to be heard!
