Dear Dr. Firestone, I am a huge admirer of your work in the psychological field and your theory behind voice therapy and behavioral cognition fascinates me. I am currently finishing my undergrad in psychology and planning on going to grad school and would love to be able to specialize in voice therapy and gain experience with this type of therapeutic response for individuals. I read your books and love your works and the way you express yourself and the many intriguing case studies you have come across. I appreciate if you have taken the time to read through this and thank you for all your contributions.
