Expressive Therapies

 

For some clients, traditional talk or skill-based therapies are not the best intervention, and in keeping with our commitment to provide a wide variety of integrative interventions to best meet individualized needs, we are pleased to offer expressive arts therapies, including art therapy, dance/movement therapy, and music therapy services.

 

Art Therapy

Art Therapy can bridge the conscious and unconscious processes and foster healing, growth, and resiliency. Through the use of art media, the creative process, and the resulting artwork, client's can explore their feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and addictions, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety, and increase self-esteem. This process can restore a client’s functioning and sense of personal well-being, and is an excellent therapeutic intervention.

 

Art therapy is available for individual or family counseling sessions.

 

Dance/Movement Therapy

Dance/Movement Therapy is a psychotherapeutic approach to advance the emotional, cognitive, physical and social integration of an individual. DMT benefits all populations and settings. In DMT, movement is an outlet for self-expression, insight, self-care and growth while in a nurturing and safe environment. Individual sessions may include the utilization of props, such as parachutes, scarves and musical instruments. Dance/Movement Therapy groups provide an opportunity for individuals to explore and play with creativity through movement and dance, while also incorporating art and music therapy for creativity and self-expression. 

 

We currently offer dance/movement therapy in both individual, family, and group sessions.


Music Therapy

We are pleased to offer integrative music therapy as part of our wellness services. Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship. It has amazing healing, processing, and learning potential for clients, and research supports its effectiveness for a wide range of presenting problems and goals. Clients need no prior musical skills to participate or gain the full benefits of music therapy, and it is a transformative interventions for children, adults, families, couples, and groups.

"My daughter LOVES Brigit's dance/movement group, and I have noticed she is having an easier time with boundaries and her self-esteem has sky rocketed! It was the perfect addition to her trauma therapy!"

"Evelyn is by far the best therapist my daughter has ever worked with. Her creativity and use of art as a tool has made my daughter feel and do better. I work in the human service field myself, and  have become a true believer in art therapy."
