A somatic psychotherapist and trainer of actor-singers in New York City since 1982, I still work exclusively with singer's, actors, and those who use their voice professionally in their work. Learning to express yourself authentically, in your God given voice in front of other humans is not always easy- but well worth the time spent. In fact, most people feel that dying would be easier that having to expose oneself in front of an audience.

Unresolved trauma is the source of our panic states that prevent us from being in the state of calm where true emotion is experienced. Our survival muscles, also called the muscles of initiation or emotional muscles, are also the muscles that produce speech and singing. When we are in a state of fight/flight/freeze, we lose access to relaxed elasticity and go into either a hyper or hypo mode.
