Batsheva Ganz, MHC Intern

I’m a registered mental health counselor intern and expressive arts facilitator who works with children, adolescents and adults. I have specialized training and experience in education, play therapy, arts therapy, creative movement, and the therapeutic use of yoga, dance, meditation, and trauma recovery.

Additionally, I specialize in separation and divorce recovery, working with single parents, both as individuals and families.

As an expressive arts facilitator, I realize that no single approach is best for every individual. I therefore utilize a variety of techniques, therapeutic approaches and a broad range of creative modalities (such as art, music, movement, drama, etc), to facilitate solution-focused healing, trauma resolution, positive change and personal growth. My favorite aspect of using expressive arts therapies is connecting people with the power of creativity, allowing them to access feelings and thoughts language alone cannot express.

I believe that when we tap into an inner creative source, we can uncover deeper levels of subconsciousness, which promotes a more profound sense of healing. I encourage the use of arts therapies to discover the countless ways that creativity can enhance the quality of life and sense of wellbeing.
