Dance/Movement Therapy

Dance/Movement Therapy supports healing, growth and wellness through creative and body-centered approaches, while integrating traditional methods of psychotherapy. Movement is the therapeutic tool used to support the individual’s emotional, cognitive, physical, and social integration. Dance/movement therapists closely observe, witness and experience the client’s movement in order to build an empathic relationship; to learn about his or her ways of expressing and relating; and to create therapeutic goals and interventions. Dance/movement therapists pay attention to the individual needs of every client in order to encourage and assist in his or her growth and development at every level.

Dear Miss Karen, As you know, I auditioned for the play Honk, Jr. at my school. Guess what -- I got the lead role of Ugly! I think all of my work in music and theatre at Arts for Healing really helped me do a good job at the auditions. So thank you for helping me so much over the past 8 years. I'm really excited. Love, Brian "Music can always be there when you need it."
