Are you struggling with chronic hoarseness or discomfort during and after speaking? Are you having a hard time keeping up with demands at work or turning down social invites because your voice is unreliable?
Good news! Most patients with voice disorders can regain a healthy sounding voice with proper guidance from a trained voice therapist. Voice therapy involves helping patients establish healthy voice habits, eliminate harmful vocal abuse and learn to establish correct voice production. We tailor a program using evidence based voice exercises to specifically address each client's needs.
This can include: Vocal Function Exercises (to improve vocal fold weakness), Resonant voice training (to establish correct voice use, reduce vocal fold swelling), Respiratory retraining (to eliminate shortness of breath caused by chronic cough/Vocal Fold dysfunction), Relaxed voicing techniques (to eliminate laryngeal muscle tension/discomfort with voice use), and more!
