    Leading with Passion: Janet Courtney Discusses Lighthouse Therapy

    Leading with Passion: Janet Courtney Discusses Lighthouse Therapy

    For me, Lighthouse Therapy is more than a company. It's a calling.

    I have been a Speech Language Pathologist for 30 years and a teletherapist for 13 years. In 2018, I felt unsettled in my current role as an SLP. I asked God, "What should I do next?" and had no idea that God would lead me to start an online therapy company that would impact the lives of thousands of students every single year.

Excellent

As a new CSD professor, I find this podcast to provide a lot of great insight about tele-practice and and the field in general. As medicine is constantly evolving, providing students and ourselves as clinicians with effective tele-practice approaches and the research behind them is so important. Thanks for the content!!
