GENDER AFFIRMING VOICE & COMMUNICATION THERAPY

Voice and communication style are an important aspect of many people’s identity. The goal of therapy is to support you in developing an authentic, healthy voice and communication pattern that matches your gender identity and individuality. After a thorough intake and voice analysis is complete, a voice and communication program based on your own personal needs and goals will be developed.

 

Although pitch is an important variable, it’s not the only factor that differentiates male and female voices. In addition to pitch raising or lowering, voice and communication therapy may target the following areas:

  • Inflection/intonation

  • Resonance

  • Language

  • Nonverbal communication

  • Non-speech communication (e.g. coughing, laughing)
