Shira Kirsh, MS, CCC-SLP
Speech Language Pathologist
“I was consistently gendered male on the phone. It was causing confusion and disconnect between my name and voice. I researched voice therapists and chose to use Shira. I am happy I did. Talking and interacting with Shira was fun and the results speak for themselves. Working on the exercises she recommended proved useful and I no longer get gendered male on the phone. I highly recommend Shira for voice therapy. She is easy to talk and get along with. Her approach works and the lessons are fun.”

Motivated participants should first be seen by an ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) physician to make sure they are in good vocal health, before starting sessions.
Individuals should be able to express their true gender at least 30% of the time before starting therapy. Daily practice is essential to develop the skills necessary for authenticity. Approximately an hour a day is needed for practice. Sessions should be weekly or every other week.
Sessions usually run for 3-4 months after which time it can be determined how individuals are progressing.
After the initial individual assessment, therapy sessions may be shared with another individual who is working on voice feminization as well.
