My daughter has had a very deep voice, if you walked into a room and didn't know she was there, you'd think it is a boy talking. It is embarrassing. Can anything be done to correct this?

I would first suggest that she see an Ear, Nose, and Throat physician to rule out the possibility that there is a structural abnormality contributing to her abnormally low pitch. If the problem is determined to be only a functional one, that is, a difference in the way that she is using her voice, then voice therapy with a speech pathologist experienced in treating voice disorders should be able to correct the problem.
