Gender Affirmative Communication Training

Voice Modification Therapy

Gender affirmative communication training, or voice modification therapy, is designed on an individual basis for each client. Gender diverse patients are provided with tools and exercises to aid in voice modification (feminization and/or masculinization of voice) with a goal of discovering and developing an authentic voice. We endeavor to maximize total communication, including not only aspects of voice such as conversational pitch, resonance, and inflection/prosody, but also nonverbal communication. The initial evaluation will include a case history, assessment of voice, and laryngeal stroboscopy to screen for any laryngeal pathology. Subsequent voice therapy sessions vary in length and frequency based on individualized factors.
