Envisioning Your Future: Taking the Next Step 


with Sylvia Israel, MFT, RDT/BCT, TEP and 
Maria Mellano, LICSW, CP/PAT

Each of us have goals and visions, changes we want to make. In this evening, we will share our visions experientially, identify what supports us on our journey and what we might need to let go of to allow the vision to emerge.

Join us and enjoy a safe, stimulating and confidential evening. Together we will take the next steps towards creating new and life affirming narratives through the healing power of the expressive arts and applied creativity. 

What is Psychodrama? Psychodrama is an experiential method of exploring our private and public worlds in a multi-dimensional, creative way. It helps people safely express unexpressed feelings, develop insight through action and practice new desired ways of being. Psychodrama encounters people where they are in the present. Through the emphasis on creativity and spontaneity, people experience a deeper connection and appreciation of themselves and others. Psychodrama can be used with groups, couples or individuals.

What are Tasters? Tasters are open sessions designed to provide the opportunity to experience psychodrama. They are instructional, experiential and welcoming. 

Who should attend? All experience levels are welcome. No acting skills needed and participation is at your level of comfort.
Continuing Education: 2.5 hours CEU credits available. Additional fees apply.
MFT/LCSW/LPCC/LEP: $30; Psychologists & RNs: $50.
