Accent Modification Training

An accent is NOT a speech or language disorder. Therefore, accent modification is training, not therapy. An SLP is the most qualified professional to provide this service, as they have extensive education in all areas of communication. You may want to change you accent because you feel tired of people not understanding you, you feel self-conscious about certain speaking situations, you feel you are not taken seriously, or you may simply want to blend in more with American culture and speak the language more accurately. Whatever your reasons, Catalyst offers affordable packages to help you reach your communication goals. Kelsey Wickre can help you with the following:

- Altering the rhythm, or intonation, of your speech 

- Changing your resonance, or quality of your voice 

- Articulation, or the way in which you produce sounds 

- Figurative language (e.g. it’s raining cats and dogs!) 

- Nonverbal, or body language



Transgender Voice Training

We offer a safe space and affordable class packages to receive Transgender Voice Training, which is a specific training used when you want to masculinize or feminize your voice. Kelsey Wickre can help you do one or all of the following:

- Work on volume, or how loud you speak

- Change the language you use to help you sound more masculine or feminine
