Espanola native Briana Radosevich Bustos created Speech Tree, LLC to provide private, accessible, high quality speech-language evaluations and treatment across Northern New Mexico.
After graduating from Los Alamos High School, Bustos earned her Bachelor of Science in Education for Communication Disorders and went on to obtain her Master of Arts in Communication Disorders. She worked in Las Cruces pediatric outpatient clinic and at a skilled nursing facility before realizing her passion was with the pediatric population. She now has two young children of her own.
Bustos is credentialed with the American Speech-Language Hearing Association and has been practicing as a Speech-Language Pathologist since 2016.
“I decided to create Speech Tree, LLC when I observed a shortage of speech-language services throughout the area. There seemed to always be a waiting list at the established clinics making it hard for people to get the help they needed. I wanted to provide services that were easily accessible to those who were interested,” Bustos said.
She has experience working with clients who have speech and/or language disorders, cognition deficits and swallowing disorders as well as overall communication deficits and cognitive impairments. Working primarily with the pediatric population these days, she also has adult clients.
“Helping others is my passion and speech-language pathology has allowed me to work with a diverse population that includes toddlers, school-age children, adults,” Bustos said. “Growing up in a more rural area I have seen how difficult it can be to find services to meet the needs of so many people of all ages. Sometimes students need year-round services or more time that the schools can provide.”
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Speech Tree, LLC will only be conducting evaluations and therapy by remote means through Zoom which is a HIPAA compliant virtual platform. Services are provided for those living in the Santa Fe, Pojoaque and Los Alamos area.
