Julie Alaniz MS, CCC-SLP

Speech Language Pathologist

Julie Alaniz MS, CCC-SLPJulie has been a practicing speech-language pathologist since 2014 and has experience in a range of settings such as private practice, home-based early intervention, and in-patient pediatric. She grew up in New Hampshire before receiving her Bachelor’s degree from the University of New Hampshire and Master’s of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from Northeastern University. Julie relocated to Colorado in 2019 and has continued her work in the pediatric private practice setting since.

She has a variety of experiences working with speech, language, and feeding disorders. One such specialty is the Developmental Individual-difference Relationship-based model (DIR) Floortime. DIR was created for children on the autism spectrum. However, as a philosophy that focuses on the unique needs and interests of each individual, it can apply to any child or adult. These principles have become the foundation of Julie’s therapeutic style that she developed over three years in Austin, Texas at a pediatric private practice that specialized in DIR. She strives to build relationships with each child and their family to implement treatment that best meets the needs of each child. Julie feels strongly that parents are the biggest experts when it comes to their own child so she works diligently to make therapy meaningful and functional for every family.

Julie is also a specialist in social-emotional learning challenges, pragmatic disorders, selective eaters, and a responsive-based feeding approach. She has taken continuing education courses with Michelle Garcia Winner, Marsha Dunn Klein’s Get Permission Approach, and Catherine Shaker to deepen her knowledge in these areas. Julie moves at the child’s own pace in all areas of learning, including feeding goals. She encourages them to explore new foods and textures in ways that are comfortable and fun. Implementing feeding therapy in a pressure-free environment works towards the long-term goal of improving their overall relationship with food and mealtimes.

In her free time, Julie enjoys spending time outdoors going hiking and camping, chasing after her toddler, and spending time with her husband and daughter.

How Can We Help?



My husband and I are grateful to Cobblestone for everything they have done for our daughter Scarlett. We have had the pleasure of working with Lynn and it has been a life changing experience for our whole family. Scarlett has gained so much confidence in her abilities and we feel fortunate to have had this opportunity to work with them on her speech goals. We know that with their tools she will have a different level of learning than that of her peers. In addition, Jodie has been a delight to work with from getting us started to answering any questions we have in a timely manner. They treat you like part of the family and they truly care about your child.

We moved here last year and found Cobblestone to continue my then 4 year olds Apraxia therapy with Miss Samantha. Last week he had his last session. It’s been a wonderful year working with Samantha and Lynn and we are going to miss them so much. Samantha was a great therapist and worked so well with my son. Lynn is such a wonderful, kind, and caring woman and I truely enjoyed our afternoon chats. She runs her business so professionally, yet when you walk in the door, you feel like family. We had some issues with our insurance company and she worked so hard to get things fixed so that we didn’t have to deal with them ourselves.

We love Cobblestone! We have worked with several therapists over the past 3 years at Cobblestone. Each one has been easy to work with and adaptable to my sons needs. Due to Covid restrictions, we are seeing Kimberly remotely every week. I wasn't sure if remote therapy would be a great fit for my son, but she has made the transition extremely easy and engaging. He continues to work on and gain skills with every session. Kimberly is able to hold his attention for most of the session. Way to adapt Cobblestone! Thank you.
