Dance Therapy


Dance Therapy uses dance, movement, play, and body-oriented inquiry to inspire the body, mind, and spirit for a greater sense of wholeness, harmony, and freedom. Dance Therapy has helped clients find joy and self-acceptance, increase energy and vitality, strengthen self-esteem, enhance body image, instill a sense of trust in oneself and in the world, explore relationship patterns and reconnect with their natural spontaneity, to name a few. Dance Therapy engages the creative source inherent in all of us and so each session becomes a magical unfolding of co-creation.

"Dance Therapy sessions helped me to begin to unlock the shackles which had imprisoned my spirit. Ricki gently and patiently challenged me to challenge myself with new perceptions of both who I was, and how I fit into the world. Ricki's very essence exudes an energy filled with creativity, joy, and understanding. I always felt safe and very welcomed. Dance Therapy became for me a safe haven for free-spirited expression, which allowed me to mentally and emotionally take a very deep cleansing breath. With Ricki's help, I was able to explore and celebrate the beauty of my own soul."
- Tanya, Business Owner


Individual sessions are available for those interested in using Dance Therapy as a form of psychotherapy or simply to further personal growth. Dance Therapy uses the body to inform and enhance the therapy process, bringing material stored in the body out from the unconscious, to witness, work with and transform. Sessions are always a co-created journey, set within the context of safety and open communication.
