Initial consultation

After a brief phone conversation, I conduct an initial consultation in person during which I find out the presenting problems or issues, take a detailed history, and find out what your goals are for treatment.  This helps me to formulate a course of treatment and find out what modality you are interested in or would suit you best e.g. talk therapy or dance/movement therapy. 

 

Talk therapy

Meet once or more per week for 45 minutes for verbal therapy as outlined by the treatment plan.

 

Dance/movement therapy

Meet once or more per week for 45 minutes for a dance/movement therapy session.  A typical session has a beginning, middle, and end that includes a movement warm-up, working through movement themes, and a closing movement ritual.  During and after the dance/movement therapy session, themes, emotions, and methods of coping are discussed verbally.
