"The visual, creative and physical techniques of Angela's dance/drama therapy brought dimensions of color and insight to my otherwise flat black and white view of my situation. With Angela's qualified assistance, I squashed demons, lies and outmoded behaviors patterns that no longer belonged in the world of my newly liberated spirit. Her approach taught me tools and skills to easily use in my everyday life so I could further progress in my quest to live the genuine and authentic life I am entitled to live. It's not just about what is going on in the head, it's about me as a whole...and that includes a heart, body, and soul." -Adult Male
“Dance therapy provides a tangible connect between mind and body that enables those who practice it to find the true root of their problems and thus fix them beyond simply applying the "bandage" effect.” -Adult Female
“Dance Therapy has been a fun and effective method for my child to express her thoughts and feelings. She is always anxious to share what she has done and learned. My child has made efforts to put the things that she has been taught in her therapy sessions into practice.” -Parent
“Dance therapy supervision has been an eye opening experience for me! I never dreamed it would be so effective with patients but I am thankful I have had the opportunity to see how moving enables and facilitates communication and emotional exploration!”-DMT student
“I never knew how amazing DMT was until I met my DMT supervisor while obtaining my Master's program in counseling. She has dramatically opened my eyes, my heart and my spirit into this amazing world. I never imagined that I could experience such a beneficial therapy like DMT. I have witnessed the changes of how DMT can help a client can use their body and their body's movements as another form of expression when mentally they are unable to verbally clarify their state well-being (i.e. emotional, cognitively, physically, etc.). Interning as a DMT intern student has increased my excitement and eagerness on how much more I will learn and how I hope to one day make my mark as the next DMT generation in the future.”

I think the active therapy was very helpful for the children as I do not see them being able to sit still and talk. It also provided ways for them to practice skills involving impulse control and interacting with others. - Parent
