About me

Hi! I'm Heather. I am a mind-body integrative voice therapist, specializing in gender-affirming and trauma-informed voice. In addition to my licensure and certification in speech-language pathology, I am a certified vocologist from the National Center for Voice and Speech, Certified Contemporary Voice Teacher, Certified Transformational Coach and Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, and Registered Yoga Teacher. With over 20 years of vocal performance experience, I became interested in the field of speech-language pathology through my own vocal journey, recovery, and healing. I became a speech-language pathologist in 2018, and have worked across a variety of settings, including private practice, teletherapy, schools, and medical centers. My approach connects the mind, body, and voice to help clients uncover their most authentic voice and heal themselves through love and self-compassion.

I am very happy with my therapist and they are helping me a lot. They are very compassionate and make it comfortable to do the work.

Heather is fantastic. I’ve had many voice counselors and she is by far and away the best I’ve ever had. She explains concepts and tips clearly, is well prepared, organized, and keeps me motivated to practice in between our sessions.

Heather Gross is an excellent speech therapist. She has helped me achieve all my goals and more. This week she restored confidence in my voice after an illness left it debilitated. The work she does is amazing and has exceeded all expectations.

I can't say enough positive things about Heather. The way she approaches voice and speech therapy is unlike anything I have ever experienced. Throughout my years and years of speech therapy, sessions were always hyper-focused on the techniques. The techniques are essential tools in our toolkits, but they always felt more like homework and less like someone was trying to help me. From the first session with Heather, I knew this was special. She taught me so much about voice, and how important my perception of my voice was. Growing up, I was constantly bullied for stuttering. This led to me being pulled out of public school for a while and a very negative outlook on my ability to speak. I was the weird girl with a weird stutter, and that was that. Why would anyone take the time to listen to me? Why would my voice matter to people? I can say with confidence that working with Heather has completely flipped that notion on its head and out of my mind. Now, I love my voice and fully believe in its value to others. What I have to say matters, and if others don't have the patience to hear me out, that is on them. I just have a different way of speaking. Some have accents, I stutter from time to time. That does not take away from my abilities or my power to make change. Heather was able to do all of this, while also helping me practice and use the techniques in ways that helped me in day-to-day life. From picking up food to prepping for job interviews, she had me covered. She and I worked to find the tools that worked best for my voice specifically. Practicing with her always felt like joyful guidance from someone who genuinely cared about me and my success. Voice acting, singing, and vocal warm-ups galore! Anything that both of us agreed could be beneficial, we practiced. Usually laughing and smiling the whole time!

Heather is an excellent speech therapist, she has helped me find my authentic voice which I am very happy with, despite not even being done. She has helped me immensely and I am very appreciative.

Heather Gross was awesome!! I worked with her for 1.5 years and came out with a much more positive outlook on my communication skills. She's patient and works with you to figure out the therapy style that works best for you. She's extremely calm as well and it was delightful working with her over the past 1.5 years. I'm graduating to a no-therapist regime now and am looking forwrad to this next chapter in my life. Thank you Heather and Expressable for creating such an impactful experience for me! :)

It was a thorough evaluation including my medical history, my experience with speech therapy, words I struggle with, dysphoria I experience from my voice and figuring out my starting range. I felt understood and listened to throughout the session. I also appreciate the explanation beyond the methods and techniques in addition to being given some tools and things to work on.
