Darlene Matlock

Speech Pathologist (MA, CCC-SLP)

Darlene has known since she was 7 years old and learning to sign the alphabet that she wanted to help people communicate. Today, she holds a Master of Arts with a Clinical Competence Certificate in Speech Language Pathology. She enjoys that her patients range from infants to the elderly and come to her with a variety of concerns and issues. She also appreciates the flexible hours that come with working in rehabilitation. Darlene joined the Paramount team in November 2012. Prior to working at Paramount, Darlene worked with children as a speech therapist for the Bay-Arenac ISD and Tuscola ISD. She also worked for a home care agency. She has 2 teenage children and enjoys playing cards and spending free time with family and friends.

Never give up on your dreams. During college, I was a cheerleader and worked in a bar, so I had chronic laryngitis. A professor said I’d never get hired as a Speech Language Pathologist.


“Darlene was very personal, helpful and genuinely cared about improving our son’s speech. Our son would not have made the progress he did without his therapist’s help.”


“Everyone was courteous and knew what they were doing especially my therapist, Darlene!”
