Born and raised in Vermont, educated and practiced in Oregon and New York City, Corinne brings a wealth of experience throughout her practice. After studying under the some of the best practitioners in Oregon (SLP, OT, Developmental Pediatrics, MD), she opened her own practice in NYC in 2006, serving adults, children and their families in-home, utilizing her expertise in identifying and treating Orofacial Myofunctional disorders (abnormal lip, jaw or tongue position during rest, swallowing or speech), sensory motor feeding therapy, and extensive fellowship training in autism parent training and treatment. Corinne continued to study fluency (stuttering) treatment and hone in her skills with articulation and receptive and expressive language treatment as she returned to the west coast, treating families in home and in office throughout Multnomah and Clackamas counties.

When time and family permitted she contracted into school settings for urgent short term placements in severe behavior classrooms as well as general education settings. Corinne's career took a turn to educating and training graduate student clinicians and speech language pathology fellows through clinical supervisor roles. She served as an adjunct supervisor at Pacific University mentoring graduate clinicians at a private school for homeless children, feeding her passion for this population. In addition to speech pathology she uses Craniosacral Therapy (CST) as a tool to get to the route of some more structural and physiological disorders. Corinne and her husband have 3 children (2 teenagers now!) that have expedited her understanding of the importance in the role of development, health, engagement and overall communication.

Prior to joining the Eugene Speech Therapy team, Betty externed at the VA in Roseburg, and worked for several years in skilled nursing/long term care facilities with diverse patient populations. Betty has rehabilitation experience with adults with swallowing, communication, and cognitive disorders affected by dementia, stroke, traumatic brain injury, head and neck cancer, and other neurological disorders. “My therapeutic approach is to improve my clients quality of life.

Bihler picture.jpeg

Joanna was raised in Cleveland, Ohio, however after living in the Pacific Northwest for over 20 years, she proudly considers herself an Oregonian. Joanna learned at an early age the power of one’s voice. When she was four, her grandma was diagnosed with cancer of the larynx and spent the remainder of her life communicating through penned notes and attempting to speak through an electrolarynx. The challenges her grandma faced had profound influence on Joanna, awakening a deep empathy for those struggling with speech.


Her relationship with her grandma propelled Joanna to become a speech-language pathologist. In 2017, she received a Master’s degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Idaho State University. Since graduating, Joanna has worked with a variety of populations with complex communication needs, but mostly with children in primary school.  It wasn’t until the birth of Joanna’s two children that she truly understood the degree to which oral dysfunction could impact someone’s life. When both her daughter and son had difficulty sustaining a latch to breastfeed, Joanna learned they both had tongue ties. She became inspired to pursue specialty trainings in Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy and pediatric feeding.


As a certified vinyasa yoga teacher, Joanna combines her passion for holistic health with her knowledge of the orofacial complex, seamlessly incorporating breath and postural awareness into treating myofunctional disorders.


Joanna’s free time is spent with her children, family, and friends; enjoying nature, outdoor adventures, gardening, and practicing Pilates.
