Molly Cantarella earned her Bachelor's in Speech Language Pathology from Texas Christian University (TCU) and her Master's in Speech Language Pathology from the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD). She has many years of clinical experience in a wide variety of settings, including private practices, outpatient rehabilitation centers, and early childhood intervention programs. Over the course of her career, Molly has had the opportunity to work with numerous types of patient populations and disorders, such as: Autism Spectrum Disorders, Down's Syndrome, Pierre Robin Sequence, Rubenstein Taybi Syndrome, Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum, Childhood Apraxia of Speech, Velopharyngeal Incompetence, Fluency Disorders, Articulation/Phonological Disorders, Expressive/Receptive Disorders, and many others.
Molly was born and raised in north Texas, but has deep ties to south central Oklahoma through her family's ranching operation in the Arbuckle Mountains that was established in 1965. In 2019, she and her husband decided to move to Oklahoma to run the ranch and grow their own cattle company. After spending two years working in Ardmore, falling in love with the area, and assessing the ongoing need for speech therapy services in the region, Molly decided to start her own practice to better serve the needs of the local community.
She believes in meeting each child where they are, tailoring speech therapy to meet the specific needs of each child, and involving parents & caregivers to ensure the generalization of learned skills to all environments.
