"I am forever grateful to Bailey for our work together and for the perspective that he helped me develop."
I'm a leading expert specializing in changing the lives of people who stutter. I see you as whole person and a whole lot more than your stutter. Taking a trauma informed approach, I will guide you towards not only stuttering more easily, but also towards living a more fulfilling personal, professional, and social life. My clients have aced job interviews, gotten the promotions they deserved, and engaged in their social lives more joyfully. Nothing brings me greater satisfaction than witnessing the incredible transformations that clients experience as they begin doing more of the things they love.
Experience the freedom and joy of embracing your true potential.

Combining evidence-based approaches with decades of combined experience researching and treating stuttering, as well as being a person who also stutters, I guide clients toward achieving their goals through highly personalized therapy.
For school-age, teens, and adult clients, my therapeutic approach is guided by methods that increase confidence as a communicator while learning to stutter more easily. You are not broken. You don’t need to be fixed.
For preschool-aged children, my approach focuses on coaching parents on how to support healthy communication attitudes and resilience in their child while also creating a more relaxed communicaiton environment.
Meet Bailey V. Levis, M.S., CCC-SLP
Years ago, the struggle of being a covert stutterer consumed my life. I know what it’s like to wake up with immense fear and worry about all of the unknown interactions that might happen that day. I worried about who I would stutter with and what they would think of me. I was afraid they would think I was stupid. I felt weak.
I also know what it’s like to be on the other side of this pain. I wake up every morning knowing that I have the strength and confidence to say what I want when I want, regardless of my stutter, and I go to bed at night thinking about the people who stutter / stutterers that I helped. It brings me great joy.
Getting Started with
West Coast Stuttering Center
Begin with a free 30-minute phone consult where I will answer your questions and make recommendations for next steps.
We typically begin with an evaluation to better understand the impact and nature of your or your child's stuttering.
Following the evaluation, we will collaborate to develop goals and a treatment plan for therapy.
I used to block myself from interaction because of the fear of it being a disaster, but I haven't done that in a while now.
