Finding your voice is so much more than just a metaphor. The body remembers. The voice is perhaps the most expressive part of the body, and its memories emerge as sound. My goal is to help people access not just the physical apparatus of the voice, but also the full range of expression and experience that comes with it. 

Voice Movement Therapy can have a profound emotional and psychological impact. 

Voice Movement Therapy is the ongoing creative process of discovering and creating the self through the body and the voice. It is the art of excavating one’s personal archaeology, using sound and movement to dig down through the layers left by individual history, trauma, and society. Freeing the voice shakes loose these layers, which have been deposited and crystalized in muscle, tissue, and vocal chords. 

I invite you to discover yourself through the voice, moving your way through play, curiosity, storytelling, creation, song, and shadow to a fuller, freer understanding of yourself. 

My work also frequently taps into a connection with nature. As embodied beings, I believe that we are deeply connected to the Earth, and that reconnecting in body and voice can yield transformative gifts.

Kaatje’s presence in holding space for transformation is gentle yet steadfast. I had a powerful experience that felt like I was being led on a journey by someone who had done this a thousand times. I relaxed into the knowing that Kaatje exuded and was able to have a major breakthrough with my voice. The immediate after effects are amazing but what has astonished me is the fact that, months later, I am still seeing the transformation play out.

 

When I got the chance to do another session 5 months later, I wasn’t sure what would come through. I could feel something was stirring and with Kaatje’s guidance I was able to tap into a part of me that has now fully blossomed. I am happy to announce I can speak my truth and sing my song with a clearness and a conviction that I never knew was possible. Thank you Kaatje. 

Inez Pucci, Singer

 

Singer. Healer. Artist. Dancer. Earth Lover.

In the summer of 2019, I participated in a women's retreat in the mountains of New Mexico. In that intimate circle, I found myself singing with such joy, and even leading songs. Something clicked. I have been singing since I was a teenager, but never wanted to be a performer. I simply continued to sing for the love of it, learning styles as far-ranging as flamenco, classical, and tango. At that retreat, I realized that there was a different way I could use my voice: for healing. 

 

Enter Voice Movement Therapy (VMT). From the first session I was hooked. Here was a modality that combined the sensitivity and mindfulness that my family had helped cultivate with my natural creativity and curiosity, using the voice and the body as tools to shape, explore, and express. It was liberating! 

 

Today, after the longest training in VMT history (thanks to the pandemic), I am a provisional practitioner, freshly moved to Sedona, AZ, and ready to share this work.
