Voice therapy is often recommended by an ENT doctor as the first line of treatment for voice problems. It is lead by a speech-language pathologist and focuses on behavioral changes for the patient including improved vocal hygiene, increasing perceptual awareness of the voice, and changing the mechanics of voice use. Vocal resistance training is provided, when appropriate, for voice strengthening. Pathways Speech Therapy places a heavy emphasis on patient education about voice anatomy and physiology. Well recognized and researched voice interventions are used as appropriate and tailored for the individual's needs.

Recording Session

“As a frequent public speaker, I greatly value my voice. Later in the day my voice felt strained and I had less volume and poor vocal quality. In working with Devon, I have made significant corrections to long-held habits. I learned breathing techniques, vocal exercises, stretches to reduce tension, and I now have better vocal endurance. Without reservation, I recommend Devon."
