Everyday voice users
This includes speakers experiencing difficulties with everyday voice use in functional daily tasks (e.g., public speaking in a classroom or having a conversation on the telephone).
This includes voice users who are experiencing difficulties with their voice for performance use (e.g., singers, theatre actors).
Gender Transition Voice Training
This includes transgender men and women who are seeking voice training to develop a voice that matches their gender identity.
Initial voice assessment will include a comprehensive voice history review, audio recording, goal-setting, and trial therapy tasks.
Voice treatment will include varying sound and voice facilitation techniques to reestablish a voice for functional daily or singing tasks. Homework will be provided to continue practice of skills covered in session.
You should consult with an Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) Specialist for an examination of your throat before beginning voice therapy if you are experiencing persistent problems with your speaking and singing voice. A referral can be made to an ENT by your family doctor. This examination provides valuable information for the therapist before moving forward with voice treatment.
