Our Story

Upon relocating to Alamogordo in 1995, Pam Gallien opened a small speech contracting business serving Zia Therapy and the Alamogordo Public School. In 1996, she sublet a small room from Southwest Hearing in the Medical Arts Plaza on 10th Street and started her private practice, Digame Speech Language Consultants. She saw outpatients of all ages, joined the medical staff at Gerald Champion Hospital where she served as a speech therapist for approximately 18 years. She also provided services to the Alamogordo Public Schools, Alamogordo Home Care, and Betty Dare Good Samaritan. As the business grew, she moved to a small office on Hawaii. It was there that Physical Therapist Ronald Gallien joined the practice and Gallien Therapy was born. They practiced in that office until the completion of their building at 1809 Indian Well. As the practice continued to expand, the decision was made to add additional therapists to help meet the needs of the local communities. In 2018, the decision to expand the pediatric practice to include pediatric occupational therapy was made. The Indian Wells clinic could not accommodate this expansion, so the German Community Center at 1451 Galway was purchased to house Gallien Therapy’s Speech and Occupational Clinic. Since its inception, Gallien Therapy has strived to meet the needs of the local communities, including the mission of Holloman Air Force Base.

We are grateful to the Tularosa Basin and HAFB for allowing us to serve your therapy needs for the past 27 years.
