EXPRESSIVE ARTS & DRAMA THERAPY FOR INDIVIDUALS & GROUPS * CLASSES * WORKSHOPS * TRAININGS * PRIVATE SESSIONS
Do you want to feel wildly self-expressed and creatively fulfilled?
Do you want to live from spontaneity, passion and alignment with your heart’s truth?
Would you feel empowered to share your story as a solo performance?
Are you tired of your “inner critic” stopping you from fully expressing all that is inside you?
Do you have a desire to access creativity more easefully and joyfully?
Would you like to be more connected to your body’s wisdom, and cultivate your ability to use your body, including physical challenges and ailments, as doorways to creativity and healing?
Do you work with others – youth or adults – who would benefit from arts methods that actively engage, challenge and inspire their hearts, bodies and minds?
If you answered “YES” to any of the above sessions, I would love to talk with you about the possibility of working together. To set up a free 30 minute phone consultation, call: 510-841-0888.
EXPRESSIVE ARTS and DRAMA THERAPY with YOUTH & ADULTS
Offices in San Rafael and Berkeley
Are you yearning to express yourself more fully? Do you have something inside you that is wanting to be expressed as a solo performance, a dance or otherwise through the arts? By encouraging deep listening to the body through somatic practices, and to the heart through tools from expressive arts and drama therapy, I see my role as a guide and an ally in helping you to be fully self-expressed, joyful and aligned with your deepest self. I specialize in working with shadow material, healing past trauma and transforming the inner critic, self-doubt and fear into positive sources of creativity and inspiration. In connecting to and embracing the creative process, space is created in which each of us can thrive in our full aliveness and well-being.
Suraya compassionately and skillfully helped me to see so many opportunities in an area of my life in which I had been feeling stuck. I left our session feeling creative, invigorated, and full of potential. She also gave me valuable tools that I will use again and again to help me evaluate my options and find the ones most aligned with my passions, values, and talents. Thank you!

Solo Performance Training and Coaching
Is there a story you want to share with the world? Is there something inside you that wants to be expressed in the form of a performance, but you are not sure what that is yet? Is there something blocking your creative expression that wants to be freed? Sharing your story through solo performance can be exhilarating, nerve-racking, liberating, empowering and much much more. I would be honored to support you in the development, rehearsal and performance of a story that wants to be released from YOU and shared with the world. If you would enjoy group support, join Sylvia Israel and myself in our upcoming “EMPOWERMENT THROUGH PERSONAL STORIES: A PERFORMANCE WORKSHOP” in October-November 2014. See WORKSHOPS page for more information. Below is a clip of my own recent solo performance:
