“Unlike talk therapy, drama therapy gets there really fast. Role-playing – acting out issues and problems – is more effective than talking.”
–Robert Landy, PhD, RDT/BCT

Why Choose Drama Therapy?
Drama Therapy is a creative and active way to heal from life’s many traumas. You enact the story of your life as you envision it, set goals and solve problems, and express your feelings authentically. As a result, you feel less isolated, have new coping skills, and have improved self-esteem.
Drama Therapy for postpartum mothers provides a safe distance from the intense emotional experiences associated with postpartum depression and anxiety. This, in turn, supports women in understanding their needs more clearly and examine their relationships from multiple vantage points. Postpartum women in drama therapy report speedy symptom reduction and better relational functioning shortly after beginning treatment.
