My mission is to provide quality voice and speech therapy in a manner that is respectful of the whole person, using all my knowledge, intuition and skills to guide each person to become free to speak in all situations. Using my own experience of long-term successful management of Spasmodic Dysphonia, my primary focus is to share the knowledge that this is possible through holistic voice rehabilitation. The current paradigm of short-term voice therapy and/or botulinum toxin injections is limited. SD is of larger scope than simply the voice, and requires a broad, yet individualized approach to treatment. The neurological aspect of SD is dealt with through a model of neuroplasticity, eliciting a shift and re-grooving of voice production. Spasmodic Dysphonia treatment is my passion.
