Doctor of Audiology, Lic# 30951
Dr. Trygg grew up in northern Minnesota and moved to Oregon in 2014. She earned her BS in Communication Disorders and Sciences at the University of Oregon and her doctorate at Pacific University. She has experience screening for, diagnosing, and treating hearing loss for people of all ages. During her internships, she worked with individuals with middle ear disorders, individuals with cochlear implants, and performed vestibular evaluations. She is especially interested in tinnitus management, hearing conservation, communication strategies, and environmental modifications to improve difficult listening environments. Dr. Trygg is an artist of many mediums and enjoys painting, creating digital illustrations and animations, writing, and playing music. She also loves canoeing when visiting her family in MN, and spending time with her talkative cat.
According to Dr. Trygg, “Hearing loss can cause everyday conversations to be frustrating and exhausting, often leading individuals with untreated hearing loss to withdraw socially. They may stop participating in conversation at the dinner table, meetings at work, or avoid challenging listening environments altogether. Social withdrawal or isolation impacts not only the individual with hearing loss, but their relationships with family, friends and coworkers. I help my patients stay socially active and maintain their interpersonal relationships by focusing on their listening goals and needs, teaching effective communication strategies and encouraging self-advocacy.”
