Rehabilitation of Vocal Injuries and Disorders
After many years as a performer, arts student, and singing teacher, I became licensed as a speech pathologist so that I could help people whose voice problems include a medical diagnosis.
If an ear-nose-throat doctor has examined your vocal cords and diagnosed a problem [such as vocal nodules, polyp, weakness, or swelling], my goal is to return your voice to normal. The process may include lifestyle coaching, direct and indirect vocal exercises, breath and resonance work, and hands-on treatment to the neck and throat.
If you’re having trouble with your voice and have not seen a throat doctor (laryngologist), I can suggest several very good doctors in the area. Or we can meet for an initial consultation, and I can give you a medical referral list at that time.Click here to schedule an appointment now
