Moving Together offers Dance Movement Therapy services in Toronto’s east end. Operating out of Pegasus Studios, Jessica Houghton (Dance Movement Therapist) facilitates individual and group therapy services, as well as workshops.
- Our weekly group, Moving Women, resumed on Sunday September 17th! The group offers a creative environment for women to move together to find support in an accepting community and a safe space to explore their mental health. It will run every Sunday, except holidays, from 2:00 to 3:15pm. If you are interested in joining this group please get in touch via the Contact page to arrange a phone consultation and get your first group free!
- Individual therapy consultations can be booked free of charge. The consultation will take place in person at the studio so you can get a feel for the medium and Jessica’s approach as a therapist. Please get in touch via the contact page!
Jessica is able to ground participants so that they can express themselves in a safe and inclusive environment, while DMT provides a rich emotional outlet where purely cognitive based talk therapy can be limited in delivering the closure, self-soothing tools, and emotional validation that I experienced in this work.” – Shaila Khan
- Check out our blog! Our latest post explores reconnecting to our bodies after times of stress. Other blogs include why DMT isn’t just for dancers, “So, what IS Dance Movement Therapy?” and “Why choose Dance Movement Therapy?“
- Jessica was recently interviewed for the radio program Open Dialogue for Accessible Media Inc., discussing what DMT is and how it differs from community and accessible dance classes.
