We feel emotions in our bodies. Sometimes, our emotions are strong enough to cause physical discomfort. Other times, we feel so strongly we become numb and disconnected. Becoming overwhelmed can leave us feeling lonely and misunderstood. We want to connect with others, but we also want to protect ourselves. In therapy with me, you will learn how to understand, appreciate, and work with your emotions, to cultivate compassion, self-esteem, and resiliency.
My therapeutic approach is based on evidence that the body and mind are connected. Each client receives customized treatment--combining creative expression with talk therapy. My guided in-session creative experiences help clients practice and internalize the themes developing during the therapy process, and prepare for change outside the office.
Creative expression facilitates exploration of feelings, self-expression, and development of problem solving skills. Whether you have a creative background and want to use your strengths to help you grow, or you are looking for my support to try something new--reach out, and get started today!

Betsy Saccenti's Groups

Adult Creative Arts Workshops

Expressive movement sessions that use the mind-body connection and creativity to enhance personal growth. These workshops are not intended as psychotherapy, but can be used to supplement individual therapy, creating an outlet for practical exploration of therapy goals. While a background in dance is certainly not necessary, a willingness to move is needed. Comfortable clothing is recommended. Weekly Topics: 1/26 Taking the Lead; 2/2 Joining Others; 2/9 Reconnecting with Play; 2/23 Taking Risks; 3/1 Focusing Attention; 3/8; Practicing Gentleness; 3/15 Seeing and Being Seen; 3/22 Maintaining Connection
