The Importance of Voice Therapy for Male-to-Female Individuals

Your voice is an intrinsic part of your identity. For many on the male-to-female (MTF) journey, aligning your voice with your true gender identity is a pivotal step. While hormones can aid in various physical transitions, they don't significantly change your vocal folds after puberty. This is where voice therapy becomes essential for you.

Voice therapy isn't solely about pitch modification. It's a holistic approach that takes into account resonance, intonation, speech patterns, and even nonverbal cues. The aim isn't just to sound 'feminine', but to discover an authentic voice that truly resonates with who you are, ensuring you feel recognized and validated in every conversation.

Our Treatment Approach

Vocalic Language

Vocalic language refers to the vocal characteristics and nuances that go beyond mere word choice, encompassing aspects like pitch, resonance, and vocal fold closure tension (weight). These vocal qualities play a profound role in gender expression, often signaling femininity even before specific words are recognized. For transwomen, aligning their vocalic language with their identified gender can be pivotal for feeling authentically represented and avoiding misgendering in daily interactions.

Verbal Language

Verbal language encompasses the words we choose, the phrases we employ, and the speech patterns we adopt in communication. Cultural and societal norms often associate certain styles of speaking with femininity. In the context of gender expression, mastering these verbal nuances can be integral. By using feminine verbal language, transwomen and transgirls can further enhance their authentic self-presentation, fostering a deeper sense of belonging and validation in social interactions.

Nonverbal Language

Nonverbal language encompasses the gestures, facial expressions, and body language accompanying our speech, and it plays a subtle yet powerful role in conveying gender cues. For male-to-female individuals, aligning nonverbal communication with their identified gender can greatly influence the perception of their voice and overall femininity. The subtle tilt of the head, the way one holds their hands, or the rhythm of a gesture can either reinforce or contradict the femininity of the voice, making mastery of nonverbal cues crucial in holistically presenting one's authentic self.

How do we start?

Initial Consultation

The first step in the voice transformation journey is the initial consultation. This foundational meeting allows us to truly understand your goals, aspirations, and current voice baseline. It's a space for open dialogue, where concerns are addressed, and a roadmap for the journey ahead is jointly visualized. By gauging where you are starting from, we're better equipped to guide you to where you wish to be.

About 10 years ago a dear friend of mine came to me because they were transitioning. At that time there was very little information about gender affirming voice therapy.

They knew I was a Speech-Language Pathologist and asked me to help with their voice. As I saw the hardships my friend faced, I knew that they, and you, deserve gold standard care.

Today you get the benefit of access to truly qualified speech therapy with a laser focus on gender affirming voice treatment. 

You can have the voice you want! Whether you are FTM (trans man), MTF (trans woman), non-binary, gender fluid, agender, androgynous, or any other gender, you voice should be true to you!

I am FTM and my voice was very high. I wanted to make my voice lower and Seth helped me with that. He also showed me how to change my way of talking like making sure my voice isn’t just low but also sounds masculine.

My voice was totally wrong!

I love doing my make up and wearing cute outfits and I am totally passing but as soon as I opened my mouth it would all fall apart! It’s a long process but now I feel like I am closer to really being myself! I love my new voice!

Keri makes sure I always feel safe. Some days I even just need to talk and she always listens. I have a lot of depression and anxiety and some times I just can’t work hard and Keri never makes me feel bad when I don’t do my homework. She understands.
