My method is pragmatic and data driven. Research shows that pitch is only a small aspect of the difference between genders. Additionally, men and women’s voices vary in terms of speed and volume variability, breathiness, and use of pauses. Content-wise, variations exist between the number of adjectives/adverbs used, topics discussed, the use of paralanguage, interruptions and conversational elements. I’ve done graduate level research and study on the vive la diffèrence between male and female communication patterns.
I currently meet with clients for one hour using Zoom meeting software, which is free. I also offer nonverbal training, image management and wardrobe consultation. I also have a good resource list for everything from hair styling and waxing to tailoring, undergarments and ear piercing.

I focus on the kinesthetic differences between male and female body language. Walking, sitting, posture (moving the natural center of gravity from chest to pelvis or in the reverse, as the client needs), standing, getting into and out of vehicles, and putting on coats are just a few of the basics.
Male and female vocal content varies widely, so clients also learn about the differences that exist in word choice, topics, pitch and volume variation. Nonverbal interpersonal dynamics, which include the different ways men and women sit together socially and in business situations, body space adjustments, and gender-appropriate touching behavior are also included.
My rate is $75 per hour, with some sliding scale opportunities. Sadly, insurance does not cover this service, but I accept Venmo, checks, cash, or money orders. Because of COVID, I now meet clients using Zoom. Also, shopping trips are not currently available.
