Andrea Kissee-Beall
Speech-Language Pathologist

Andrea Kissee-Beall (pronounced "Kiss'-ay - Beel") is a licensed speech-language pathologist who specializes in working with toddlers to teens. I am the founder and creator of Vanguard Speech Therapy, which was born out of a passion for empowering children to find their voice and supporting families.

I specialize in evaluation and treatment of speech sound disorders, expressive and receptive language disorders, stuttering, and pragmatic (social) language disorders.

My journey in this field began with my education at California State University of Fresno, where I obtained a Masters in Communication Disorders and Deaf Studies with a specialization in Speech-Language Pathology. This rigorous program equipped me with a comprehensive understanding of the complexities of communication disorders and the skills needed to make a lasting impact in the lives of those I serve.


What sets me apart as a speech-language pathologist is my unwavering commitment to excellence. I consistently stay up-to-date with the latest research and best practices in the field, allowing me to provide innovative and evidence-based therapy techniques. 


As a mother of two, I understand the importance of fostering strong and meaningful connections with clients and their families; and am committed to providing them with a warm, inclusive, and supportive environment that fosters growth and empowers clients to thrive.


One of the unique aspects of my practice is the flexibility I offer through in-home and teletherapy one-on-one sessions. By bringing therapy directly to the comfort of my clients' homes, I create a safe and familiar environment where they can thrive. Additionally, I understand the importance of establishing strong relationships with both children and their families, ensuring that everyone involved feels supported and valued throughout the therapeutic process.


If you are seeking a passionate and experienced speech-language pathologist to assist your child in their communication journey, I would be honored to be a part of their progress. Together, we can unlock their  potential and lay the foundation for a lifetime of successful communication.

Vanguard Speech Therapy is proud to support the LGBTQIA+ community through affirming healthcare and a commitment to continued education.
