~personalized speech therapy in a comfortable environment~
My name is Analicia Lucas, and I am the owner of Lake Murray Speech. I had worked in the outpatient hospital setting for years and saw how often, the length and quality of therapy is dictated by hospital policies and productivity standards. I wanted to create a more comfortable, personalized, and home-like experience for clients to come to therapy and work on their communication skills. That is how my private practice began.

Here at Lake Murray Speech, we help those who have difficulty communicating to develop new skills and confidence. We provide speech therapy services for children and adults with the following concerns: Speech Sound Impairment, Language Impairment, Social Language/Pragmatic Disorder, Aphasia, Voice Disorder, Tongue Thrust, Stuttering, Hearing Loss/Aural Rehabilitation, Accent Modification, Apraxia of Speech, Augmentative & Alternative Communication.


ABOUT US:

Lake Murray Speech & Language was created to provide high-quality, more affordable speech and language services for those seeking private individual therapy. Our mission is to help each person gain the skills and confidence they need to become excellent communicators.

We can effectively treat a variety of disorders, but we have specialized experience working with bilingual clients, Spanish-speakers, and American Sign Language users.

In San Diego, many opportunities exist for children to receive speech therapy at no cost to the family. San Diego Regional Center speech therapy services are available for children ages 0-3 with severe needs and Children's Care Connection (C3) services are available to children 0-6 with mild to moderate needs. The San Diego RiteCare Childhood Language Center also accepts applications for free therapy for children ages 2-12. Additionally, your local school district provides free services to those who qualify (generally, children with moderate to severe impairments). If your child qualifies for any of these services, we encourage you to use them!

Many children do not qualify, even if parents see a need for speech services. Other times, children qualify but are placed on a long waitlist. Some only qualify for very short sessions within a group setting and make limited progress this way. Similarly, if adults have a health insurance policy that does not cover speech therapy, the options for low or no-cost therapy are limited. That is why Lake Murray Speech & Language was created! We offer excellent speech therapy services in San Diego for those who are looking for more options.
Bio
I’ve had an interest in speech since I was young, but my passion for helping people with speech and language difficulties began as I learned Spanish in a foreign country and American Sign Language at a university for the Deaf. I began to realize how difficult it is to communicate when your skill set is different from those around you. When I entered graduate school and met many patients with speech and language difficulties, I became eager to find new ways to help them.

A native Texan, I moved across the country to start my career in San Diego, where I received training in bilingual and cochlear implant-related therapy. Throughout my career, I learned how to effectively help people with autism, stuttering, voice disorders, hearing loss, brain injury, stroke, cleft palate, apraxia of speech, and many types of speech and language impairments to improve their communication skills. I have provided diagnostic and therapeutic services in the outpatient clinic of two large hospitals and one private doctor’s office with children and adults of all ages.

As I gained experience and developed my clinical skills, I had a dream to open a private practice of my own. I opened Lake Murray Speech & Language to help children and adults who would benefit from speech services, but who are looking for more options. I now have the privilege of serving patients from my home-based practice. When I’m not seeing patients, I enjoy mentoring new therapists, hiking, singing, cooking, and spending time with my family.
