Voice Aerobics Private Practice

Effective 4-03-2020: Our physical office is closed to out-patients  in order to support the request for minimal contact as a way of controlling spread of the Coronavirus.

If you are currently enrolled in out-patient therapy, you may be eligible for e-visits, which have been authorized by Medicare. E-visits allow you to ask any questions you may have about your care and obtain advice and guidance about a home program you may have been instructed to carry-out.

Please contact me by email or phone if you are interested in this type of visit in order to provide verbal consent.

Mission: To enlist individuals in their treatment, to help them express their personality and spirit through voice, and to educate and empower.

Teletherapy and Online Coaching Special Pricing Now through May 2020

Improve Speech, Voice Aerobics

Many speech-language pathology out-patients, perhaps even you, are unable to receive speech therapy treatment due to closures associated with the Coronavirus.

If you are currently enrolled in out-patient therapy, you may be eligible for e-visits, which have been authorized by Medicare.

For this reason, you may want to investigate Telepractice and Online Coaching. I have been offering this for years and patients report great success with it. Using your home computer or tablet device you can connect with me for an assessment, treatment, or coaching, including help with use of any Voice Aerobics product.
(Please note: teletherapy is not yet reimbursable through Medicare)
