The first question people often as me is, “What is drama therapy?” The second is, “So is it for kids?”
My response to that is, yes, drama therapy can be for kids! It also can be for adults or teens dealing with daily stresses in today’s fast paced and sometimes isolating world.
Drama therapy is an active, experiential approach to facilitating change. Through storytelling, projective play, and purposeful improvisation, participants are invited to rehearse desired behaviors, practice being in relationship, expand and find flexibility between life roles, and perform the change they wish to be and see in the world. Drama therapy can serve people of all ages dealing with depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, relationship ruptures, stage of life stresses, and social/behavioral challenges.
As a Registered Drama Therapist (RDT), I offer sessions to individuals of all ages, couples, and families in Los Angeles, CA. Online sessions can also be arranged.
As a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist (LCAT) in New York State, I offer sessions via online platforms such as Zoom or Skype to individuals living in New York.
I firmly believe that healing can come from creating a space where clients can feel seen and heard, and where a reconstructive relationship can be formed based on mutuality, respect, creativity, and playful exploration.
