Patty received her M.A. in Speech Language Pathology at the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1985. While at CU, Patty developed a passion for working with children and adults who stutter, under the teaching and mentorship of Dr. PeterRamig. During this time Patty was able to witness the amazing impact good therapy had on the lives of people who stutter and recognize the commitment and dedication on the part of theclinician which served as the catalyst for change. Following graduation, Patty worked for Dr. Ramig in his private practice whichspecialized in stuttering from 1985-1992. In 1992, Patty, along with Mary Wallace opened the Center for Stuttering Therapy with offices in Denver and Boulder. Patty works primarily in the Denver office, coordinating clinic responsibilities and doing therapy.
As a result of widespread lack of knowledge and training in the area of fluency disorders, Patty is strongly committed to the training of new students in the area of speech language pathology. She is adjunct faculty at the University of Northern Colorado, where she teaches the graduate class in Fluency Disorders and supervises graduate students working with fluency clients. She also is on clinical faculty at the University of Colorado Boulder, where she supervises the StutteringDiagnositicPracticum.
Patty co-authored “Fun with Fluency for the Young Child” with Mary Wallace in 1998, and “Fun with Fluency for the School Age Child” in 2013.

Patty is a Board Certified Specialist in Fluency Disorders and is a member of the Fluency Interest Goupin ASHA. Patty has presented extensively in the area of fluency disorders at the local, state, national, and international level.

Whitney Noven graduated from Northern Arizona University with a masters in Speech Language Pathology in 2009. She began working at the Center for Stuttering Therapy immediately following graduation. Whitney works with children ages 3 through the teen years. Her passion for stuttering began much earlier, during her fluency disorders class with Patty Walton, as an undergraduate at Metropolitan State University at Denver. After listening to Patty speak about what she did everyday and the kids and adults she worked with, Whitney was hooked. Whitney is very committed to FRIENDS: The Association of Young People Who Stutter. She has attended the FRIENDS national conventions since 2010, has facilitated children’s workshops and presented to speech language pathologists. Whitney has co-chaired the Denver one-day workshops for FRIENDS from 2010 to present. During these workshops and conventions, she has learned invaluable lessons from children and adults who stutter and their families, passing conversations and developing friendships. Whitney has also presented with the CST therapists at the Metropolitan Symposium conferences from 2013-2015 on topics related to assessment and treatment of preschool and school age stuttering. While stuttering is her first love, Whitney also enjoys working with children, teens and adults on the autism spectrum. When she was in graduate school Whitney spent a great deal of time working with these individuals outside of school and enjoys when she can use her skills as a therapist to work with this population and their families. When she isn’t working Whitney enjoys spending time with her family, dogs, quilting, traveling and any day in the mountains.
