About Progressive Therapy Associates

“We love our work. We really do care about our patients and that they get the results they want to feel more like themselves again.” – Jodi and Janet, co-owners of Progressive Therapy Associates. 

Progressive Therapy Associates was established to fill an unmet need in the area for speech-language pathology services, which specialize in cognition and communication. As Certified Brain Injury Specialists, our therapists all share a passion for treating how brain differences might affect how you listen, process, remember, and communicate. When we say that we love what we do; we truly mean it. We care about our patients, we celebrate their successes, and we truly feel for them when they are struggling. In short, we can’t imagine doing anything else. While creating a treatment plan with you – (notice we didn’t say FOR you) – we will customize it to suit your particular goals, preferred learning styles, and individual preferences. We realize everyone has a different vision for what they’d like to achieve through therapy, so we do whatever we can to make your vision a reality.
 

Our practice is privately owned and independently run, so you will never feel "lost in the system" here. Always, we aspire to deliver high-quality services that meet a patient’s individual aspirations while operating with a positive, friendly and supportive vibe. We understand the daily challenges and frustrations that our patients may face, so we do whatever we can to motivate and inspire them. We provide a superior level of care that improves the quality of life for every adult and adolescent we serve.

About Progressive Therapy Associates
Qualified therapists

Our dedicated team of speech-language pathologists are specially trained in speech therapy as it relates to cognitive-communication issues (how you listen, process, focus, remember, and communicate). We are also nationally certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, are nationally recognized by the Brain Injury Association of America and are Certified Brain Injury Specialists (CBIS). We are licensed to practice in both North Dakota and Minnesota. We believe every patient deserves the best treatment and support we can offer in every single contact and interaction with us.
 

Individual approach

We recognize that no two people have the same needs and that everyone has different learning styles. That’s why we like to call our approach “the Progressive way,” which means we will happily customize treatment plans to meet the unique needs of the individual and their family. We also believe in “the right fit” between patient and therapist, so will make every effort to match you with a clinician who connects with you, understands you, and utilizes a therapy style that is comfortable for you.

We are here to help

Depending on the goals you wish to accomplish and the learning pace that is most comfortable for you, we will arm you with the evidence-based strategies, proven skills and ample support you need to feel more organized, prepared and effective. Therapy strategies may range from recommendations for specific tools (such as timers or planners), one-on-one brainstorming and problem-solving to address concerns, therapeutic activities as well as computer trials or worksheets to help strengthen cognitive and executive functions like attention, memory, and planning.
 

Coaching with compassion

We know that working on cognitive-communication issues is hard work and that it can be easy to feel defeated or overwhelmed by the challenges of building a more efficient brain. However, you will not be in this alone. We are not just speech-language pathologists; we are fellow human beings who care about you, your journey, and your success. We don’t want an appointment to feel like you’ve been sent to the principal’s office. Instead, you’ll find a comfortable space where you’ll feel listened to and understood. And because humor makes everything more bearable, be prepared to laugh and joke a bit too!
