Dance / Movement Therapy

Dance/Movement Therapy (DMT) is an innovative form of psychotherapy which works with the whole person integrating movement, creative process, and verbal communication. The connection of body and mind is the basis of DMT, which aims to further self-expression, healing, personal growth, and the treatment of physical, neurological, and social issues.
