Gender Spectrum and Transgender Voice Training  is for individuals who are looking for a safe and healthy platform to develop or explore a voice that is more congruent with and/or reflective of their self identity. 

 

Our speech-language pathologists are voice therapists with extensive experience with voice therapy and training specifically for gender non-conforming, non-binary, and transgender people. 

 

Your goals may include voice feminization, masculinization, neutralization, or you may be looking to refine vocal quality and build vocal endurance. 

Each program is highly individualized, and our goal as the voice therapist and speech-language pathologist is to support youTogether, we will first explore a wide variety of features that shape a healthy and gender appropriate voice. We will then delve into more advanced voice features, based on your preferences, that are congruent with and representative of your identity. The next step is to expand and generalize into real-life situations that require stamina, duration, projection and confidence.

EXAMPLES OF GOAL STATEMENTS:
 

I will discover a healthy voice that is authentic and congruent with my identity

I will reduce vocal discomfort and fatigue and find ease and balance in my speaking voice

I will improve the clarity, consistency, and tone of my voice

I will better understand and learn to manage variables that impact maintenance and consistency of my voice 

I will explore, in a healthy, guided way, the pillars of voice training, including pitch, resonance, quality, articulation and intonation patterns 

I will use my congruent voice across many different situations and contexts (e.g. speaking on the phone, speaking in person with familiar and unfamiliar listeners, speaking to large groups, using a loud and projected voice)

Commonly covered topics include vocal health, voice care (including a daily voice warm-up and cool down), pitch, resonance, articulation, voice quality, intonation and inflection, and more. 

While each person's program differs dramatically, I've found it useful to consider the following framework:

1

Discover and develop a healthy and objectively _____ (feminine, androgynous, non-binary, masculine) voice.

2

Discover and develop the voice I feel is congruent with my identity and best represents me as a human.

3

Maintain my congruent voice through increasingly complex variables (e.g. duration of time, audience, volume, high pressure, high emotion).
