Holistic Psychotherapy and Express Arts Therapy

Utilizes traditional "talk" therapy combined with a holistic approach to the healing process.  Practitioners work with the mind, body, emotions, and soul to the degree that is comfortable for each client, couple, family, or group.  Clients can receive therapy for many life issues, including "traumatology," which addresses verbal, physical, emotional, and sexual abuse; Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Secondary PTSD.  Practitioners may also incorporate the expressive arts, such as visual arts, dance/movement, poetry/drama, or guided visualization as tools to enrich self-expression and self-exploration, deepen communication, promote healing, growth, and self-esteem, and enhance an overall sense of wellness.
