Creative Arts Therapy
Music Therapy and Dance/movement therapy (DMT) are the psychotherapeutic use of music and movement to promote emotional, social, cognitive, and physical integration of the individual, for the purpose of improving health and well-being.
Molly facilitates creative arts therapy groups for older adults, residents in assisted living facilities, and memory care communities. Creative arts therapy groups offer a structured, yet fluid movement and musical space that offers the opportunity for clients to sing, dance, and express themselves in both verbal and non-verbal outlets. Recorded music, percussive instruments, dance scarves, and other materials are incorporated for reminiscence, relaxation, and orientation to person, time, and place.
Molly provides individual sessions with those living with chronic illness, receiving palliative care and/or hospice care. Molly offers a safe, comfortable, and sacred space for both the individual and their loved one through movement, therapeutic touch, music, and vibrational sound. Creative arts therapy in end-of-life care can range from music listening and songwriting, legacy dancing to healing movement circles, reminiscence, and non-verbal expression.
