Our Services —
of the arts
Dendrite Expressive Arts Coaching utilizes our unique human relationship with the arts to create powerful tools for personal growth and healing. The creative process is already often therapeutic in the daily lives of many individuals—from singing in the car, to doodling while on the phone, or reading in the evening to de-stress—and expressive arts therapy seeks to tap into this natural therapeutic relationship to forge meaningful insight and positive change.
Dendrite Expressive Arts Coaching uses multiple art forms, such as movement, dance, creative writing, drawing, journaling, and singing to foster self-knowledge and increase the neuroplasticity of the brain. During a session, our work is focused on building resilience and supporting the brain’s ability to create new pathways of connection for growth and healing. This aids the brain’s ability to respond and change throughout life by reorganizing itself through the formation of new connections between brain cells.
