Learning how to use drama therapy to get to the heart of the matter

Innovative Approaches

Improving one’s capacity to change LIMITING beliefs about oneself


The Many Benefits of Drama Therapy

Allowing you the space to:

  • Take greater risks, and be more vulnerable often without even realizing it
  • Build empathy, more trust and tolerance for self and others by taking on different roles
  • Promote change as you rely on the group and a seasoned experienced relationship expert and licensed therapist as the safe and receptive mirror
  •  Break free from habituated ways of being, to be more authentic
  •  Access more creativity and spontaneity, learn how to be more authentic,
  •  Take on the role of protagonist and become a hero in your own life
  •  Adopt a broader role repertoire when interacting with emotional material and ultimately in the outside world
  •  Build greater trust in self and repair relationships (falling into a state of grace with self)
  •  Metabolize grief and resolve “unfinished business” so that they may be more available to live in the awareness of the present
  •  Strengthen your observing ego so that you can more easily own and eventually even release the story- if you decide to- and repetitive defensive patterns

“Insightful, talented and quick…”

“Ilene Wolf is insightful, talented and quick. I attended a class she runs exclusively for therapists, called “Getting to The Heart of the Matter.” I’ve never seen anyone so quickly identify the source of a problem and instantly understand the path to healing. This workshop allows you to bring to life your inner drama and rewrite your life’s “script,” with the support of the group. You’ll bring to life relationships, recruit allies and heal age-old problems while retrieving the most loving and healthy parts of yourself. This is absolutely one of the most rewarding and effective therapy classes I have ever attended – and it’s fun. I highly recommend it!”
– Alan Barsky, CHT, MH

“Down to earth and clear…”

“Ilene is probably the most natural genuine therapist I have ever met. She is down to earth and clear. She would not miss what cannot be missed -that obvious truth that can easily be missed by so many others. Her clarity reflects the truth within the person, who needs help right away.”
– MK, chiropractor and nutritionist

“A safe supportive environment where I felt comfortable…”

“… the leaders quickly facilitated a safe supportive collegial environment where I felt comfortable sharing my deepest concerns. “
– Joanne Davis, MFT
