Have you suffered from a diagnosed vocal injury or are recovering from voice surgery or injections?
Do you struggle with chronic hoarseness, MUSCLE TENSION DYSPHONIA (MTD) or vocal fatigue that makes singing harder than you know it can be?
Have you been diagnosed with neurological dysfunction resulting in vocal fold paresis, paralysis or essential tremor?
ARe YOU SCHEDULED FOR VOCAL FOLD SURGERY AND UNDERSTAND THAT SESSIONS BEFORE YOUR PROCEDURE WILL AID IN A BETTER RECOVERY?
I am an experienced singing voice rehabilitation specialist who guides disordered singers back to free and healthy singing.
Client referrals come from speech-language pathologists, voice care practices, experienced singers, colleagues and teachers all over the US and many other countries.
To discuss your needs, the process and rates, please contact me below. I’ll respond in a timely manner, I promise!
Our vocal rehabilitation work is based upon:
Evidence-based rehabilitative tools.
Practical application of motor-learning principles to embrace the brain’s ability to groove new neuropathways for healthy function.
My working relationships with licensed Speech Language Pathologists and Speech Language Therapists in the medical community.
The use of meditation, visualization and whole body practices as part of the rehabilitation process.
My highly-trained somatic perception, highly discerning ear and leadership through emotional intelligence.
My experiences as a professional singer, vocal pedagogue and bi-lateral vocal fold paresis patient.
What You Will Need:
It is in your best interest to first be seen by a laryngologist who works with singers. You may request that copies of your records and video strobe, or images, be sent to me via email, or bring me your records at our first meeting.
(your medical records will be deleted from my files as soon as I have viewed and read them)
Just like knee surgery requires physical therapy, vocal fold surgery requires vocal rehabilitation and reconditioning.
You will need a plan for vocal maintenance and vocal health that may be different from anything you’ve done so far.
