Hilary specializes in helping trans, non-binary, and gender diverse people communicate with greater authenticity and self confidence. She can help explore and create desired changes in voice and speech using a variety of techniques that can modify pitch, resonance, intonation, and loudness, as well as language patterns and non-verbal communication skills. Or she can help you to more fully embrace the voice you have!
Hilary believes that there is a voice within each person that most fully expresses who they are. For one reason or another this voice may have been diminished. But that voice beckons to be heard because it will make the world a better place.
Discover THAT voice!
Speech therapy can improve attention, concentration, memory, word-finding, loudness, fluency, articulation, social skills, and executive function, all of which can be developmentally delayed/impaired, or be impacted by traumatic brain injury, stroke, and/or other neurological conditions such as Parkinson's disease. Hilary is trained and certified in the evidence-based Lee Silverman Voice Technique (LSVT LOUD). She also uses the Linklater voice method and meditation techniques to help to calm, relax, and improve attention and concentration. Hilary also holds weekly memory and word-finding groups.
Actors have unique needs and challenges when it comes to voice and speech. Vocal projection, speech articulation, accent modification, and developing a free, open channel for emotions to be conveyed truthfully are vital skills for an actor to possess. Having trained and performed as an actor herself for many years, Hilary understands these needs and she wants to see actors succeed! She collaborates with Kimball Studio out of New York City to help film, tv, and stage actors communicate their characters truthfully, as well as how to communicate confidently in interviews and with industry professionals.
