I was devastated and Christine helped me get my life back!

I was diagnosed with vocal nodes after months of struggling to speak and sing. My goal was to be able to handle my normal vocal load, not a small goal considering it includes teaching full time, singing professionally and raising three kids. When I first met with Christine I thought that I would need to choose between continuing to teach and perusing vocal performance. I was devastated. Christine’s treatment was comprehensive and efficient. I felt like my time was always used effectively and left with plenty to keep me working until the following appointment.  She helped me to stay focused on my achievements and progress. Christine is excellent in what she does and I highly recommend her. I am now able to speak sustainably anytime I want and sing with an even larger range than before. I can spend the day talking around the pool and still sing with my full range after the kids are in bed. Singing along in the car is effortless now, and fun. Singing hasn't been this effortlessly fun for me in years. As silly as it seems, my biggest accomplishment is singing with the radio in the car.  Being able to sing with the radio means that I am able to hit the notes in my range that were difficult before, but more importantly it means that my children get to see me doing something that I love.  For years I couldn't sing along because I had to save my voice for a performance or a lecture, or had to let it recover from talking with friends at dinner in a loud restaurant.  Being free to do something as simple as singing in the car means that I have gotten my life back.
