Find the healing inherent in dance through dance/movement therapy and counseling
As a licensed creative arts therapist and a licensed mental health counselor, Dr. Danielle Fraenkel, aka Dr. Dance, combines dance, movement, mindfulness (or kinesthetic sensing), music, and conventional counseling techniques to focus on problems as diverse as stress, anxiety, mood disorders, relationship problems, eating disorders, creative blocks, and problems with verbal communication.
Dr. Fraenkel works with adolescents and adults both individually and in groups. You do not need training or talent in dance or music to benefit from Dr. Fraenkel’s multidisciplinary approach to healing. You probably had the skills you will work with before you went to kindergarten. At Kinections you can reclaim them, working in the way that works best for you.
