Voice Therapy

Woman talking with hands around mouthVoice therapy at Glendale Adventist is designed to help reduce problems and changes in the voice such as hoarseness, vocal weakness/fatigue, hyper- and hypo-nasality or loss of pitch range due to a variety of conditions.

To see if voice therapy might be right for you, answer the following questions:

  • Do you lose your voice when speaking?
  • Do people say you are speaking too softly and they can't hear you?
  • Is your voice often raspy or hoarse?
  • Does your voice sound like you are speaking through your nose or have a cold?
  • Is your voice too high or too low?
  • Is your voice affecting your job or career?

If you answered "Yes" to any of the above questions, we can help!

Some of the conditions we can treat are:

  • Age-related voice changes
  • Recurrent laryngitis due to allergies, tense muscles or excessive use of voice
  • Vocal cord nodules and polyps
  • Vocal cord paralysis
  • Laryngeal cancer or other cancers that may affect voice
  • Spastic Dysphonia
  • Parkinson's disease and other neurological disorders.

Our certified and licensed speech-language pathologists are specially trained and have the expertise to provide a comprehensive evaluation of voice production and develop a therapeutic program to improve vocal quality.

If you are having problems with your voice it is important to consult with an otolaryngologist (or ear, nose and throat specialist [ENT}). Your ENT will make the medical recommendation and referral for treatment. For a referral to a GAMC otolaryngologist or ENT, call (818) 409-8100.

All major insurances are accepted. To make an appointment with one of our speech-language pathologists or for more information, please call (818) 409-8071.
