Hello! I’m Alexis, a certified pediatric speech-language pathologist based in St. Petersburg, FL.

Alexis Sanchez



I have found that communication skills are best fostered in a natural setting, with a strengths-based and family-centered approach. As a neurodiversity-affirming therapist, I believe in celebrating the child’s unique strengths and abilities, following the child’s lead, and focusing on connection.

I am proud to provide services that focus on respect, trust, and empathy in order to connect and build relationships with my clients and their families.

I am proud to be a bilingual therapist, providing services in English and Spanish. 

I am a Natural Language Acquisition (NLA) trained clinician for gestalt language processors

I received my undergraduate degree in Communication Sciences & Disorders from Florida State University (Go Noles!) and my master’s degree in Speech Language Pathology from the University of South Florida.

Thomas., Parent

We saw huge improvements in our child's speech as a result of working with speech therapy with Ms. Alexis. 


Ms. Alexis is outgoing, respectful, polite, considerate and was always punctual. It was a pleasure to work with her. She is great with kids. Our child loves her. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a speech therapist.

Siembra” is a Spanish term that symbolizes the process of planting seeds and watching them grow over time. I established Siembra Speech Therapy with the mission to empower children by nurturing and enhancing their communication skills through strengths-based, family-centered intervention. My hope is to plant seeds of confidence in your child and help them reach their full potential.
