ABOUT ALYSSA

 

Alyssa (she/her) is a Speech-Language Pathologist and Voice Therapist, and is a clinically-trained Singing Voice Specialist. As a Trans Voice Coach, she works most often with Gender Affirming Voice. She is registered nationally with Speech-Language Audiology Canada (SAC) and provincially with the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario (CASLPO). Originally an East Coaster from Nova Scotia, Alyssa obtained her Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from Dalhousie University following her Bachelor of Arts in Music (Voice). Her passion area is voice, and she works almost exclusively in Gender Affirming Voice Training, Voice Therapy, Voice Training, and Singing Voice Therapy. 

Alyssa
combines evidence-based practice and coaching in a way where she is able to offer flexible, comprehensive, holistic and individualized support for each of her clients. Her experience as a speech-language pathologist, voice therapist, singing voice specialist, voice teacher and artist has informed her perspective on prioritizing each person's ability to define and discover their own artful style of communicating.  Alyssa enjoys finding creative ways to achieve meaningful outcomes and is committed to individualizing each session based on her clients' strengths and needs. When a sudden turn in health over a decade ago introduced Alyssa to a voice care team, she discovered her life's passion for bringing her clients into the spotlight. Assisting with ENT stroboscopic voice evaluation has deepened her understanding of voice assessment and rehabilitation, and has refined her diagnostic ears by allowing her to more accurately associate the sound of voice with the physiological function.
