Do you find it difficult to communicate what you are experiencing only in words? Have you ever felt at a loss to fully express yourself? How do you process your experience? Are you experiencing new feelings, sensations, and thoughts that may feel foreign to you? Dance/movement therapy emphasizes ways in which you can explore, express, and strengthen your relationship with your mind and body. It encourages the question how do they inform and support one another throughout the healing process?
A dance/movement therapist can approach therapy by incorporating the mind-body connection into the whole journey. Exploration includes how the mind and body influence one another. In dance/movement therapy, you can access the healing journey by focusing on how the mind can support your body. Your movement can support your mind. I hold a master's degree from an American Dance Therapy Association approved program at Drexel University. I am a registered Dance/movement therapist.
Bringing a mindfulness based perspective to therapy allows the therapeutic space to be one of awareness without judgement. Allowing the work to be an authentic journey exploring the challenges, patterns, relationships, and connection with oneself, others, and their environment. I have written and experienced mindfulness based practices in movement, meditation, and research both professional and personally.
I believe we are all motivated towards growth and wellbeing. There are often road blocks in the way that we encounter that prevent us from getting there. As a humanistic focused counselor I believe in focusing on what is there instead of what is missing. With that supporting you on your path in collaboration with your goals, beliefs, and values. I was trained from a humanistic approach and continue to learn and grow from this perspective as well.
Women internalize unhelpful social messages, expectations, and traditions that can affect her overall well-being. The experience of being a woman is unique, dynamic, and layered. Allowing time to process, bring awareness to, and feel what it means to be a woman is empowering and essential. Women are mothers, daughters, aunts, friends, spouses, leaders, and followers in a historically repressed way. To change these messages, expectations, and traditions, it starts with a safe space.
