I never could have imagined I would be able to hear “my” voice again!

I never could have imagined I would be able to hear “my” voice again!

I started working with Christine because my left vocal cord became paralyzed after an acid reflux incident, that was caused in part by cancer. I was talking, literally like Minnie Mouse. I had no volume or capacity to say a vowel (hold a note) longer than about 10 to 12 seconds. Thanks to Christine, I literally have my voice back. I can talk to neighbors across the yard again and now hold a note over 30 seconds!  It is truly amazing the little details Christine picks up on when working with you. After several months of working with Christine, people couldn’t believe how much better I was speaking, and with volume.  By the 6 month mark, I realized I was speaking and hearing my own voice again without much effort.  It was a surreal moment for me and made me tear up. I never could have imagined I would be able to hear “my”voice again. I recently had a follow-up appointment with my ENT and he said my vocal cord was working again! Christine was easy to work with and supported me fully throughout the process. She answered all my questions, held my hand during frustrating times, and she always kept the mood positive and fun. You don’t realize how much you use your voice until it’s gone. I will be forever grateful to Christine and her help! I would absolutely recommend seeing Christine for your voice and speech needs!
