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:
Rate of speech
Our goal ...
is to build a trusting and genuine professional relationship to help you find your authentic voice with the least amount of tension and effort so that it is sustainable. We are dedicated to a lifelong journey of cultural competency training to ensure that you feel safe and supported in your sessions and throughout your journey to find YOUR voice.
What is it not?
We are 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, rather the opportunity to build a trusting relationship and support system that will work with you to give you the tools you need to be able to continue working on developing your authentic voice.
