Sessions are typically 60- 90 minutes. At the beginning of the session we will have a 5-10 minute verbal check in about what issue you would like to work with. Depending on where you are at, movement, drawing, collage, paint and writing might be explored. A non-analytic reflection will occur allowing feedback on what was seen, heard, felt and noticed during the session.
Possible take home activities might be suggested.
