About Language Essentials

We take pride in maintaining a compassionate and caring atmosphere for our families and kids. We know that families coming to us need our support to improve not only their child’s life but also the success of the whole family.

We start each therapy plan by finding out what help families need most, and which skills will benefit a child the most. We encourage close collaboration between our therapists to ensure that every child is able to develop the speech, occupational and feeding skills they need to thrive.

Our Founder,
Renée Werner

In 2008, Renée Werner founded Language Essentials so she could bring more service to Northern California children and families. Trained as a speech therapist, Renée gradually expanded her services by attracting skilled and caring staff. Renée also offers training to new therapists at California State University, East Bay Graduate Speech Pathology Program and more universities nationwide.

Our Locations

We have three locations to serve families in Northern California. Learn more about our locations:

San Ramon

San Ramon is where the Language Essentials story started. From this location, we provide services for children from Walnut Creek to Dublin, and from Oakland to Fremont, and other East Bay cities.


In Livermore, the children receiving therapy come from all over the Tri-Valley, encompassing Pleasanton, San Ramon Valley, and Livermore Valley. We are also easily accessible to Fremont and Silicon Valley.


Our newest location extends our therapy services to the San Joaquin Valley. Now, children up to age 17 living in Tracy, Modesto and Stockton can experience the benefits of our speech, occupational and feeding therapies.
