What happens in a session?
We talk about your concerns up front, and clarify goals moving forward. Each session runs in a five part series, including a check-in, warm-up, action, reflection, and closure. This framework helps ensure material is activated, processed, and dealt with in a way that feels safe - allowing you to leave the session feeling emotionally stable, cognitively grounded, and actively curious about your next moves!
I'm not an actor - can I do Drama Therapy?
I would challenge you to find a time you are not acting! Therapy shouldn't be a performance, and yet for many of us that is precisely how we feel from day to day - like we are either A) performing to fit in, B) not performing well enough to fit in, or C) unsure how to perform or "Be" at all. Drama Therapy merely hones in on humanity's natural tendency to play different roles depending on our surroundings, and helps you to find balance within and between them.
What sort of issues do you treat?
People come to see me for concerns regarding their emotions (feeling too much, not enough, or nothing), thoughts (thinking too much, blocked, or disorganized), and their behaviors (impulsive/dangerous, rigid/stifling, and so on). Your diagnosis is important to me only in that I know best practices - your humanity is of primary concern.
How can this enhance my personal practice?
HCAT primarily works with narratives stored in the body, and is able to work as a supplementary tool for those eager to enhance their embodied processing experience. Got tension all the time?
