THE VOICE AS METAPHOR
When people are asked to think of someone whom they are inspired by, often similar qualities come up and include words like: trustworthy, authentic, passionate, inspiring, committed, real, courageous, full of integrity, loving. These people stick with us because they have engaged us at a deeper human level. They aren’t perfect. In fact, sometimes it is their imperfections that help us connect with them. Their values are present and easily identifiable. Their “voice” is strong, consistent and clear.
THE PRACTICAL VOICE
Understanding how the voice works can have tremendous impacts on the way we sound, our ability to engage individuals or groups, and our ability to maintain a healthy speaking or singing voice. Most people use their voices every day but have no idea how they really work! Our voices require a complex set of systems to work together consistently and repeatedly. These systems divide into three primary components: power source (the lungs), vibrator (your voice box) and resonators (the throat, nose, mouth and sinuses). The way we use them in service of one another is mostly an unconscious process. What might happen if we really understood how to use our voice?

"We do not coach to solve a problem. We coach for a life to be lived." -Jim Patterson
We will start with an initial conversation to see if we are a good fit for each other. If so, we begin our coaching relationship with an initial foundational session so that we both have a good understanding of where you are starting, your goals and the way we will work together. Frequency and length of sessions can vary based on your needs, preferences and availability. I normally request a three-month minimum commitment to coaching. For pricing and availability, please drop me a line!
