Movement Based Expressive Arts practices utlize the body and imagination to gain new perspectives and solve problems in new ways.
1:1 Sessions are currently on hold due to COVID-19. I look forward to moving with you again very soon!
Sessions are typically 60 minutes and will include movement and one additional art modality such as drawing, collage, or writing/poetry. We will explore an issue that is important to you. You may know what needs attention before you arrive, or I can help you find a focus. You need no experience in the arts to give it a try.
Through the layering of art modalities, you experience new ways of being with issues, images, problems, and curiosities. Fresh insights emerge. For example, through your sensing, feeling body you may explore feelings of “being stuck” or “watching your back”, of “seeing red” or “being blue”. You can literally “feel into your issues”. Expressive Arts work encourages personal growth, giving external form to what is happening internally.
Together we track your experience for things that feel familiar, uncomfortable, soothing or grounding. You may feel anything from joy to self-doubt, self-consciousness to confidence, inhibition to anger. You are encouraged to ask yourself, “How does this apply to my life?”.
This work is a process in building a relationship with yourself. It becomes a personal practice and set of resources you carry with you. The effects accrue over time. We end with identifying resources you discovered during your session, that you can practice at home.
Depending on your needs and interest, sessions are available at a studio equipped with chrome poles. Chrome poles are excellent for stability, balance and creative movement explorations.
Fee $150.00, 60 minutes

Disclaimer: These sessions are informed by my 20 years of experience as a psychotherapist, and can feel deeply therapeutic. But they are not psychotherapy. I do not intend to diagnose or treat any psychological condition through Body of Art services. I encourage you to seek out psychotherapy if you feel you need help with an emotional disorder. If you are in treatment I encourage you to discuss the potential benefits and consequences of participating in expressive arts practices with your current mental health provider.
