Voice Disorders

Voice Therapy helps a person attain the best possible voice by:

  • Eliminating vocally abusive behaviors and misuse that might contribute to a voice disorder.
  • Eliminating negative compensatory behaviors that may emerge secondary to a voice disorder and contribute to or cause additional voice problems.
  • Strengthening the vocal folds.
  • Developing vocal flexibility.
  • Coordinating the breath, phonation and articulation.
  • Teaching and utilizing abdominal/ thoracic breath support.

The Team Approach:

I value working alongside otolaryngologists, neurologists and vocal pedagogues in assessing a patient and developing an individualized plan for treatment.

Typical Patients Include, but are not limited to:

  • Actors
  • Singers
  • Radio hosts/personalities
  • Clergy
  • Telemarketers
  • Politicians
  • Teachers
  • Lawyers
  • Coaches
  • Aerobics Instructors
