My Voice Experience

Since 2006, I have been creating customized recordings for anxious clients who desire to relax and sleep better, as well as for those preparing for surgery. For the latter, I record a relaxing guided visualization to take them through the process without fear and less anxiety. I also record affirmations and guided imagery sessions that can be listened to while driving, to reinforce positive thinking for any number of specified purposes. I am currently working on an audio version of a client's 3-book series of inspirational messages.

My Training

Some college: Studied speech & Drama, and English. For 15 years I worked as a journalist, editor, designer and IT Editorial Systems Editor for a daily newspaper.

My Studio Equipment

Depending on the job, I use Audacity and GarageBand on an Intel iMac with a professional Electro-Voice dynamic N/D 257B mic, pop filter and an XLR to USB converter. Also use Behringer PodCast Studio with Xenyx 802 Professional 8-input 2-bus mixer and premium mic preamps with 3-band EQs; and a USB large-diaphragm Behringer C-1 Studio Condenser Microphone, plus a desktop Harlan Hogan Porta-Booth soundproofing set up.

Additional Skills

I have studied self-hypnosis, NLP, EFT and am a holistic life coach (Univ. of Sedona) and am a SMART Recovery volunteer facilitator. My husband and I set up a non-profit to motivate, educate and empower people in the recovery community rebuild their lives. We teach workshops for substance abusers to help them learn how to reprogram their unhealthy thought patterns so they can heal unwanted emotions and live happier, healthier productive lives.
