GENDER-AFFIRMING VOICE THERAPY
What is gender-affirming voice therapy?
Sometimes a voice may not feel authentic to who you are. We can explore a variety of different voice characteristics including but not limited to pitch, resonance and intonation to craft a voice that is right for you in a safe way. My goal is to help you find your authentic voice with the least amount of tension and effort so that it is sustainable.
What is it not?
I am not here to tell you what you should sound like. Instead, we will work together to find a voice that feels right for you, whether it be more feminine sounding and “light”, more masculine sounding and “dark”, androgynous or one that changes as you need it to. It is not a therapy that you are locked into for a long period of time, rather I will give you the tools you need to be able to continue working on developing your authentic voice on your own, with support available as you need it!
How many sessions do I need?
This depends on the individual. We start off with an assessment for me to learn about your goals and aspirations for your voice. After this we often have at least six sessions for me to teach you techniques to find the voice you want. After this point, it is completely individualized! You may wish to have more support, or have me just connect with you once in a while as needed.
