Dr. Dahl has an in-depth understanding of the demands professional voice artists place on their voices. She understands the common and not-so-common ailments associated with the voice. What vocal professionals may not realize, is that most vocal symptoms stem from sources other than the actual vocal cords. For example, the most common cause of voice loss or hoarseness is from post nasal drip, allergies, or inflammation. Voice loss is the outcome, not the source, so if these other symptoms are not addressed, you can end up with an endless cycle of problems. Dr. Dahl has treated tens of thousands of patients for over a decade for many different problems. She is also constantly researching new treatment protocols from other specialties and branches of medicine. If there is a treatment she doesn’t offer, she can give you advice on how it works and refer you to someone who is well qualified to deliver that care. She has relationships with chiropractors, osteopaths, craniosacral therapists, physical therapists, acupuncturists, voice teachers, speech pathologists, and Reiki healers.
Dr. Dahl understands the importance of timing in treatment. Timing is important in several ways. You should seek evaluation when you first feel something is wrong to prevent worsening of your symptoms and avoid prolonged illness. She also believes in preventative treatments so you are not at the mercy of schedules, both your own and office visits. It is not realistic to call out of shows every time you are sick. Sometimes you MUST be on stage, and Dr. Dahl will do everything in her power to help you get there, in the best shape possible.
Dr. Dahl’s dedication in this field includes her own vocal studies, having taken voice lessons with professional vocal coaches so she can better understand and more effectively serve her patients. By no means does this qualify her as a singer, but it does give her an understanding of vocal terminology so she can communicate more effectively with you and your voice teacher. She has also lectured at forums for Screen Actor’s Guild and Actor’s Equity and those recordings can be viewed online.
