creating a world
where every child has a voice
Because inspiring self-expression gives your child confidence to build connections and
explore their dreams.
Together, we raise children’s voices up in the world through inspiring self-expression.
Together, we connect 1 Million children to their true voice.
Why we’re called Valued Voices
Your voice is your most valuable tool in life. It allows you to connect,express, be heard, and love. We’re called Valued Voices because we know that your child’s communication isn’t limited to their words. It’s also how they connect with their eyes, their hand gestures, and their body movements. We value every child’s voice and every family’s unique situation as they look to strengthen their bonds with each other.
Meet our Founder and the Team
Founder, Owner, M.A. CCC-SLP, RYT
Speech Language Pathologist
Certified Oral Motor Therapist
NLA and Gestalt Language Trained Therapist
Child Communication Specialist
A speech-language pathologist, certified oral motor therapist, and NLA Gestalt Language Processing therapist, Sholeh founded Valued Voices in 2014, shortly after a leap of faith landed her in a sought-after post- secondary teaching position in California. Within months she knew her highest calling was actually to make a significant positive impact on children’s lives.
As Founder and CEO of Valued Voices, Sholeh uses her gift in holistic Child Communication Development to empower children to connect to their authentic voice – helping them grow mentally and physically and form stronger relationships through self-expression. She works closely with entire families to ease the stress of the unknown and find and implement solutions to any communication challenges a child is experiencing.
Her desire to give children the tools to express their most authentic self was born out of her own childhood experiences with self-expression. While part of a close- knit, loving family, Sholeh still had difficulty speaking up and sharing her thoughts and feelings.
A registered yoga teacher who’s also fluent in Farsi, Sholeh has an innate ability to create calm and promote mindfulness. When she’s not furthering her education outside of office hours, you can find her out in nature or at the beach with her pup Kobe.
Sholeh holds a Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology (CCC-SLP) and is a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist.
Her practice is deeply rooted in the belief that we’re all connected. And that only through our connectedness can we reach and impact children to uplift their voices in the world.
“Helping children connect to their true voice brings a level of joy that can’t be expressed with words; it’s so grand.”
I appreciate the strong communication and flexibility provided. My son always leaves with a smile and continues to make progress each week.
Sholeh is dedicated to helping her clients. She loves them and never gives up, even when, as in the case of our son, we were told nothing could be done.
We have been so impressed and we are truly grateful to have found Sholeh! Not only is she highly trained and educated, she is genuinely kind and patient! We cannot recommend her enough!
My three year old son has been going to Valued Voices for about one year. He has made incredible progress.
Our son has been attending Valued Voices for about 6 months. He has made tremendous progress in the time that he has been working at Valued Voices.
We are so pleased to be part of the Valued Voices family. We appreciate the professionalism, the patience, and best of all, the genuine care you all have with my child. I look forward to all of Daisy’s accomplishments!
Valued Voices has been a blessing to us. Sholeh and her staff are exceptional. They are so sweet with my 3 year old boys, understanding when they have their meltdowns while gently pushing them to excel! I have seen their language and speech develop so much in a short period of time.
Sholeh is amazing and really helped my child. I have been going to her for a year. I love how she implemented her yoga teaching into my child’s session.
I am a seasoned speech language pathologist and I refer to Valued Voices. Sholeh goes beyond traditional therapy and incorporates breathing techniques to relax children, pet therapy with her dog Kobe, and talent/creativity.
I’d say our son is probably the “worst case scenario” and Sholeh has gotten results, so we wholeheartedly recommend her for your loved one.
The staff is very knowledgeable, supportive, positive, and kind. I am very fortunate to have found such a caring place for my child. I highly recommend Valued Voices to anyone looking for amazing speech pathologists.
Sholeh does an excellent job ensuring parents are educated on how they can work with their child at home. We have learned so much. They are amazing!
I am so excited to see my boys progress & for them to enjoy their time at speech! Thank you for all your hard work & helping my little ones find their voice!
I have seen Sholeh work her magic with both children and adults. You definitely want your friends and family to know about her!
At Valued Voices, we work with conscious parents to empower self-expression in their late bloomers through holistic therapies.
We work with your whole family to help your child reach their communication & motor milestones. Our holistic therapies empower children to find their voice and self-express through whatever modality suits their needs, whether that be speaking, gestures, writing, art, dance, or a device.
