Available Offerings

       Working globally with performers, professionals, and people interested in nurturing a healthier relationship with their voice, I am a Certified Fitzmaurice Voicework® Instructor and have been deepening my own voicework practice since 2013. With this frame work, I offer a solid foundation and a wealth of exercises. To address your needs, I also draw upon a variety of other approaches (including Knight-Thompson Speechwork, Svaram Integral Sound Healing Techniques, Laban Movement Efforts & more). 

        Rather than “fixing” your voice, my goal is to help you cultivate a more vibrant, healthy access to your voice while you learn to use it more effectively. We will work together to clarify your needs and how to address them. I will guide you in developing support for communication, mind-body integration, breathing capacity, and quality of presence.
