Amy Lazier is Registered Drama Therapist and mental health counselor. Amy graduated from Lesley University with her MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and a specialization in Drama Therapy. Amy received her LMHC in 2022 and has been practicing in Rhode Island as an outpatient therapist since the beginning of her career. Specializing in drama therapy, a common question arises, “Do I have to be an actor to seek treatment?” The answer is, “No!” Drama therapy provides a unique therapeutic lens to elicit change in clients. Drama therapy is appropriate for anyone seeking therapy, especially those wanting to engage in an arts-based, embodied approach.
Amy invites her clients to share their story, utilize metaphor, think about their roles in their lives, be an interactive part of the process, and be willing to find meaningful change. Drama therapy provides an outlet to work within your personal narrative, allowing you to take ownership over your story. Amy enjoys working with clients who want to give something new a try, change is not always comfortable, and engaging in a variety of therapeutic practices can help with the process.
Beginning therapy can be a scary choice, give yourself the opportunity to grow and take up space.
