If you’re dealing with internal struggles or conflicts, or are searching for an interactive outlet that can help you improve your life, drama therapy is a promising option to consider.

Drama therapy incorporates drama principles and activities, in addition to psychology and behavioral health techniques, to help you achieve mental health objectives.

It helps you to tap into your feelings, attitudes, and behaviors through theatre and drama-based activities. Drama therapy can include storytelling, improv, role-playing, and theater games. This is a good option for someone who is having difficulty articulating their stories, goals, feelings, and thoughts through talk therapy alone.

Whether you are located in downtown Washington DC, Anacostia, Ballston, Bluemont, or even Brentwood, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.
