Services Include

Public Speaking

I’ll help with the practical fundamentals - what do I do with my hands? how can I speak without "um"s? - as well as give you tools to help mitigate anxiety, increase comfort, and build confidence.

Speaking Voice Enhancement

We'll work to adjust the tone, resonance, expressiveness, volume, and clarity of your voice, helping you sound better and project more powerfully with less tension.

Accent Reduction

With guided training, you will work toward achieving a neutral, Standard American Dialect, aiding in clarity for predominantly American or multilingual audiences.

Speech Pathology

As an ASHA Certified Speech-Language Pathologist, I can help you with speech, voice, or language disorders, including those resulting from physical or cognitive impairment/injury.

Tricia was simply the best I could ask to coach me with a very technical and human approach to the learning process. Don't think twice and take classes, you will not regret it.

About Tricia Veldman

Tricia Veldman is a bilingual speech-language pathologist in Savannah, Georgia. Her primary goal is to equip others with the confidence to be themselves and feel comfortable in any situation, any conversation, and any presentation. She combines her knowledge of psychology and interpersonal communication to guide students towards the best-version-of-themselves.

Tricia recognizes that learning styles vary on an individual basis. In a therapeutic setting, Tricia is trained across a variety of speech-language domains. Her more specific interests include voice, fluency, bilingual populations, accent modification, and adolescent social skills training. She uses client-specific interests and talents to achieve effective therapy and coaching. Her clients include lawyers, consultants, entrepreneurs, health coaches, graphic designers, engineers, teachers, and employees of companies including Condé Nast, Reddit, Equinox, the United Nations, and Disney.

Tricia holds a Master of Science degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders Bilingual Extension in Italian from Teachers College, Columbia University, and a Bachelor of Health Science from the University of Florida. She completed the New York Speech Coaching Speech Teacher Training program under founder and head instructor, John West, where she also experienced the transformative power of mastering public speaking. In addition, Tricia interned at the Voice and Swallowing Institute of New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, where she conducted evaluations and provided voice therapy to a range of patients.

Tricia’s knack for languages and accents sparked her interest in providing accent reduction. After spending time in a small Italian village to learn the language, she recognizes the advantages of mastering a clear accent in one’s non-native language. This cultural awareness and first-hand experience allows her to identify with clients as they work towards achieving their speech goals.

The combination of Tricia’s strong academic foundation, diverse cultural experiences, and empathetic nature has shaped her unique, integrated approach to therapy and coaching. Her passion lies in helping individuals develop the art of communication to promote their own self-expression and personal success.

As a passion project, Tricia co-hosts The Lost Art of Communication podcast. On the show, she discusses and analyzes the evolution of communication in a digital age. Each episode includes actionable steps for listeners to implement in their day to day conversations.

Tricia taught me the core vocal techniques and how to cultivate discipline to articulate my ideas consistently with confidence. Tricia is empathetic and thoughtful, and she genuinely cares about her clients. After my lessons with Tricia, my vocal tone have become more relaxed and grounded, and I have more control over my voice.
