Tiffany Guardado, M.S. CCC-SLP, IBCLC

Bilingual Speech-Language Pathologist

International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC)

Tiffany is a pediatric speech-language pathologist, feeding/swallowing therapist,

and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. She has been practicing as a speech-language pathologist specializing in pediatrics since 2014. She has spent the majority of her career working with children and families from a variety of backgrounds and with various levels of needs related to the feeding and swallowing process - from complex medical conditions to selective/picky eating in both a medical setting and private practice. In addition to her work as a speech-language pathologist, she became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in 2021 to expand her clinical practice to include specialized lactation support. She formed Tree of Life Feeding to serve and provide families the tools necessary to begin a healthy and happy relationship with feeding. When she is not seeing clients through Tree of Life Feeding, Tiffany continues to practice speech/language and feeding therapy at a major children’s hospital part-time where she has the opportunity to learn every day from her patients and colleagues.


"It is a privilege to walk alongside families during this truly transformative phase in their lives. This work is where I find meaning."
