Body-Centered Psychotherapy Consultation Services

  • Do you have a client who has difficulty verbally expressing her or himself?
  • Are you a counselor/therapist who would like to learn techniques to assist groups to become more cohesive?
  • Are you struggling with a client who suffered trauma?
  • Are you concerned that you are suffering from vicarious trauma due to the work you do?
  • As a teacher or school counselor, do you want to enlarge your skill set in an individual case and/or when working with groups of students and children?
  • Are you looking to expand your repertoire when working with people with attachment issues?
  • Are you perplexed or uncomfortable with a client’s non-verbal behavior?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, a consultation with a dance/movement therapist (DMT) can be helpful.

Dr. Albert Mehrabian, the author of Silent Messages, notes in his research that most communication is nonverbal. In fact, nonverbal behavior is the most crucial aspect of communication.

Our board certified, state licensed dance/movement therapists focus on movement behavior as it emerges in the therapeutic relationship. Expressive, communicative, and adaptive behaviors are all considered for both group and individual treatment. Body movement as the core component of dance simultaneously provides the means of assessment and the mode of intervention for dance/ movement therapy.

The six Hancock Center therapists have over 150 years of collective experience in the field.  Staff has worked with clients of all ages and diagnoses in a variety of practice settings. The therapists at the Center are licensed by the state of Wisconsin to practice dance/movement therapy as psychotherapy (DTRL).
