Dance / Movement Therapy

Dance-movement therapy (DMT) is a therapeutic practice that uses movement and dance as a way to approach physical, emotional or social issues. Founded on the belief that there is a strong correlation between movement and emotion, therapists practicing DMT use the expressive nature of dance to observe, analyze and evaluate the client. DMT can help to improve a wide range of issues including stress, self-esteem and body image and can be especially helpful for individual’s with developmental or communication problems.

Patrick Welly Jungian Analyst

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

I am a Jungian Analyst. I completed my thesis on the exploration of the relationship between shame and grandiosity by using authentic movement as the modality for that inquiry. Developing a relationship to our bodies and how we relate to them is a valuable and important healing path for all forms of human suffering.

MA, R-DMT

I use Authentic Movement as a therapeutic modality for clients interested in working somatically with their subconscious, and couples interested in learning embodied communication skills. I earned my Masters Degree in Dance/Movement Therapy, and while not all of my clients want to move as a part of their sessions, for those who are more physically and experientially inclined - I've got you!

Licensed Professional Counselor

We are not just our thoughts, we also experience everything on a physical level. Trauma-informed yoga and intentional movement can tap into your body's natural ability to heal from trauma, anxiety, and depression and to overall embody your experiences to live more fully. I understand it can feel frightening to be present with your body and I work with you at a pace that feels manageable.
