Expressive arts therapy is a very effective modality for individuals, families and groups. Using the arts will enable you to find a safe place to engage with the numinous, build resources and resiliency, and remember the light that shines within you.
Expressive Arts Therapy includes drumming, movement, drama (including Psychodrama and Playback Theatre), vocal sounding, drawing and painting, creating sculpture, and making poetry or other creative writing.

The arts will help you create more harmony, balance and joy in your life.
Creating art helps support a deep sense of emotional stability, and encourages healthy, happy relationships.
- Use dramatic techniques to understand the diversity of roles you play in your inner and outer lives.
- Paint, write, or journal about the experience.
Exploring life through the arts can help to clarify issues, work with a current or past life situation, and begin to develop a sense of community.
Both theatre and the visual arts utilize movement, gesture and expression to facilitate positive change in ourselves and in the groups in which we work and live. They can also increase physical, spiritual, and emotional health, while fostering the development of new skills.
In entering therapy, you are investing in yourself and your future. The expressive arts can help you see things about yourself that might be missed in simple conversation. I will support as you as you develop insight into your artistic creations, and aid you in finding and giving voice to your true Self.
I also partner with my husband and colleague, Michael Watson, LCMHC, to offer psychotherapy sessions for individuals, couples and families; short-term groups; workshops; and seasonal ceremonies.
*The arts and theatre can also be applied successfully to support organizations and work teams. Please contact Jennie for more information on this.
