She has truly helped me where no one could.

I have been going to Christine for three months. She is a wonderful therapist. She has been helping me to retrain my voice after throat surgery. I find her to be insightful with her knowledge of speech pathology.

Christine is very clear in her teaching on how ones vocal cords work, and in the exercises she has me do and why. She is very patient, kind, caring and most of all she is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.

If you are seriously looking for a voice coach or are having problems with your speech I highly recommend Christine Sofiane Katzenmaier. She has truly helped me where no one could. Be sure to call her. She is great!

I was pleasantly surprised that my problems could be solved.

Christine was recommended to me to help with inconsistencies I was having with my singing voice as well as huskiness in my speaking voice.

Her explanation of how the vocal chords work was very clear and helped in the understanding the role the exercises she prescribed played in correcting my problems.  With a limited number of sessions I was able to see progress and positive change in both my singing and speaking.  I was pleasantly surprised that my problems could be solved. Christine was wonderful to work with, always encouraging with a positive attitude.  I would highly recommend her as she is very knowledgeable and skilled in her profession.

The effect of voice therapy has been life changing.

Christine is a dedicated, knowledgeable, conscientious and sensitive therapist. With variety of background, Christine has been instrumental to me achieving a better voice beyond my intention. I learned about improving my voice and singing in a way I never knew existed. The effect of voice therapy has been life changing, from numerous physical aspects, like the basics of posture and proper breathing to enhancing emotional well-being and beyond. I am now able to use my voice all day long and give speeches without getting tired. I no longer have to repeat myself to be understood, which used to be an ongoing struggle for me. Christine has taught me more than discovering my voice and the experience definitely has surpassed my expectations.

After just one session with Christine my voice opened up!

I’m so grateful for Christine. I started to experience some uncomfortable tension in my throat and my voice sounded strained. As a singer and voice teacher I depend on my voice and I was unable to find relief through my usual vocal warm-ups. However, after just one session with Christine my voice opened up! Christine’s exceptional therapy approach and myofascial release work provided instant release and my throat became relaxed and open and so did my voice. It was amazing!

Christine was very professional and present when she was working with me. I definitely will work with her again.

Life for me is 1000 times easier than it used to be.

It's been quite a rocky road for me. For the longest time I had a hard time breathing, chewing without care, and a very difficult time closing my mouth! I freaked out when I heard that I might have surgery on my mouth, but that's when I met Christine and her facial therapy. We started out with simple stuff, like marking where the "spot" is, where I should put my tongue to swallow. It took a while maybe like a year and a half, somewhere around there but it was totally worth the wait! Now I know that I should close my mouth when chewing. I know where the spot is to put my tongue on to swallow, and it's so much easier to close my mouth! Before, I had jaw discomfort, but now thanks to Christine's therapy, life for me is 1000 times easier than it used to be. Thanks a ton Christine for all that you've done for me.

My voice has maintained stronger than ever.

Christine is a wonderful therapist! I have a vocal polyp on one side of my vocal cords that has caused me hoarseness and vocal fatigue since as long as I can remember. We were able to start regular weekly vocal lessons utilizing vocal warm ups, exercises and measurements to determine the level of therapy that would be most beneficial. My voice has maintained stronger than ever, and when I feel my voice is weaker or struggling to function, I am able to refer to my exercises and notes to rest and strengthen once again. There will always be good days and bad days, but I now understand my voice better and know what I can and cannot do with it. This is particularly important as I hope to be a voice over actor one day! Thanks Christine!

She was compassionate and encouraging and achieved solid results.

Christine was an excellent speech therapist for my 6 year-old daughter who developed a strong lisp. She was able to gain her confidence and establish a fun, but productive, relationship during their first session. She then built on that relationship progressively, in subsequent sessions, and achieved solid results. She was compassionate and encouraging, yet always professional and goal-oriented. Christine is just terrific and I recommend her strongly.

Christine was able to pinpoint the tongue issue immediately.

After spending all of my teen and adult life with TMJ issues and a splint to correct my bite when I slept - I managed to totally miss the fact that I also was thrusting my tongue and resting it in the wrong position.

Referred by my TMJ specialist - Christine was able to pinpoint the tongue  issue immediately. We worked on proper chewing, swallowing, and breathing with various exercises. She also used myofascial release as a way of releasing tension in the jaw and neck, which felt great.

Now, after working with Christine, my tongue rest position is pretty close to second nature after being wrong for so long and it's really helped my TMJ issues!

It improved her smile without braces!

Christine's expert services provided for my daughter have made a very positive impact on her holistically. It is easier to understand her, it helped her to chew her food better and my favorite is that it improved her smile without braces!

We especially enjoyed Christine's thorough knowledge of myofunctional therapy, her sharing that information with us in a manner we can understand, her professionalism and unending patience as we progressed in the therapy.
