Click to learn about an interview conducted in 2007

What to expect when beginning dance and drama therapy.

 

Angela Wiley offers a free telephone consultation to answer basic questions and determine if therapy services are appropriate. Following this consultation Angela sets up three consultation sessions where therapy takes place on a "try out" basis. Upon completing these three sessions one either enters into a therapeutic relationship setting up goals or is given a referral to a more appropriate source.

  

After the telephone consultation Angela will direct you to fill out the appropriate therapy forms to bring with you on the first session. This allows for more time getting to know each to her and less time completing paper work.

  

When coming to your first session come in comfortable clothing that you can move in. Some find the office a bit chilly when sitting still so it is recommended to bring a light sweater or jacket. One my go barefoot or wear socks, most take off their shoes (Angela is never in shoes).

 

My office is a large room the you can run and toss balls in. It glows in the dark and is a wonderful place inspiring those to play and explore feelings, emotions and struggles. The office space provides containment to help people explore trauma in a safe and creative way so that past experiences dont have to be the first thing you think of when you wake up and introduce yourself to others. I help people bring about change for the future and take control of their lives and choices.  

 

I look forward to meeting you, Angela Wiley
