Provider Type: Speech-Language Pathologist, Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist
Location: Southlake

I’m Kari Paul, M.S., CCC-SLP and I joined Monkey Mouths in 2022 as a speech-language pathologist. I earned my undergraduate degree from Georgia State University and my master’s degree from the University of North Texas. Prior to Monkey Mouths I worked in home health and pediatric hospital settings.

My style of therapy focuses on utilizing the whole family to facilitate language growth and/or successful mealtimes in the child's natural learning environment. Parents, grandparents, and siblings are an essential part of the treatment team.

In my spare time I enjoy sewing, dancing, crafting, cave exploration, and spending time with my family.
