Words are everything. When spoken aloud they can change the atmosphere of a room, they can decide the course of life, they can inspire a nation or reassure an individual. I use my voice as a licensed mental health counselor to communicate compassion, understanding, trust, and more. I began voice training to expand my clinical skills and found joy in using my voice to teach and persuade through performance and media. I believe the genuineness of my voice works wonderfully well in both settings and I find joy in using it in both arenas.
