What are people saying about Susan and her programs?

  • Yesterday marked a bitter sweet milestone for Holden. He participated in his last group therapy session with Miss Susie and several of his friends he has grown to love. We started this journey almost 2 years ago when Holden started stuttering severely, to the point that we could barely understand him. He started to shut down all verbal communications and react physically and emotionally. Fortunately we were introduced to Miss Susie (Susan Cochrane), a Board Certified Specialist in Fluency and Fluency Disorders.  Today, Holden is stutter free!  She has given Holden and our entire family the foundation we needed to speak smoothly, but most importantly she has given us the encouragement we needed to succeed and overcome this life changing obstacle.  Every time Holden speaks, we will forever be reminded of this amazing lady who touched our lives forever, Miss Susie!!!!

    God has truly worked a miracle, through you, in Zach's life, in such a huge way. This program was so much more than he bargained for and we, as his parents are forever grateful for the opportunity you have provided for Zach. Thank-you for opening your home and teaching Zach confidence in speaking-this has truly been a blessing
  • Miss Cochrane, Thank you for being a great influence in my life. You are the greatest teacher I have ever had. Thanks for teaching me to see the better side of stuttering. 
  • Craig is using what he learned. He’s slowly realizing that so much of what he learned is applicable in other areas of his life. Thanks again for everything. Parent of 16-year-old boy
  • Andrea is doing so wonderfully.  She has continued with the same amazing improvement we saw upon exiting the program.  Her stuttering is so improved from before the program I find it miraculous.  We are so happy and grateful for this gift.  Parent of 16-year-old girl.
  • I attended Susan Cochrane's 3-week intensive treatment program in 2012.  I live in California.  It was absolutely necessary that I follow-up with Susan over the following year.  Telepractice allowed this to happen for me.  We met consistently over connected internet opportunities which kept me moving forward and now I am managing my fluency needs independently.  Together with the intensive, it was a successful program for me. Thanks so much Susan.
  • Jordan's progress with Susan has been nothing short of amazing.  Jordan's stuttering has been, at times, very severe.  As a result of her therapy, Jordan is much more fluent and so much more confident as a person.  I know that while the tangible progress is important, the impact that she has had on his self-esteem cannot be under-estimated.  Parent of Jordan; 15 years.
  • Susan is clearly an expert on disfluency and I would highly recommend her to anyone considering her services.  Parent of Jordan; 15 years.
  • Having worked with several other speech therapists, we immediately notice that Susan's relationship with our boys and our family would be different; she demonstrated an immense caring for our children, not just for their speech.  She embraced a total care approach, incorporating my wife and I, and our other children, into the therapy sessions, which took place -by and large-in our home.
