Hello! I'm Larisa Osipjan.
I have a strong passion for speech/language and an even greater passion for providing the right tools when difficulties arise in this area. That’s why I became a speech therapist. During my studies at the HAN University of Applied Sciences in Arnhem and Nijmegen, I completed internships in secondary care practices, where I worked with clients from diverse backgrounds with various needs.
I enjoy analyzing, listening and empowering clients to tap into their strenghts. I was raised bilingual myself and speak Dutch, Armenian, English, German, and I am currently learning Mandarin. I understand that learning a language is not always simple, especially as I am learning Mandarin myself. When the ease of speaking is no longer there, we can progress together through understanding, patience, and creativity.
My most recent work experience was at a secondary school with students from international bridging classes as the target group. I see the complexity that multilingualism can bring as a strength, and I incorporate it into my treatments for both young and old.
As my client, you are the focus, and I’m committed to working together to tailer a treatment that meets
your specific needs.
Hope to see you soon!
