"During a psychodrama group with Nan, I did a drama in which someone played the role of my father. I was able to have a conversation with him expressing how I felt about his substance abuse and behavior when I was growing up. This allowed me to safely express my emotions and issues that I struggled with. As a result, my relationship has opened up with my father."

"I am so grateful for being changed by you [Nan] and this experience. I feel lucky. I see things differently - some parts easy to pin down, others not - but surely the power of experiential work, the power of groups, [and] work that feels whole. You have been so extraordinarily generous. Thank you!"                Member of a weekly Psychodrama Group
