Psychodrama, meaning “psyche in action” was developed by JL Moreno , MD , founder of group therapy and of sociometry (science/study of human relationships in groups) and further developed by his widow and collaborator , Zerka Moreno. Psychodrama explores the protagonist’s story/truth in action to facilitate bodymindheartspirit healing . While most often used in psychotherapy , it has wide applications in education, business, law, and community settings .
Based upon Moreno’s role theory of personality , participants are able to explore current roles , both intrapsychic and interpersonal , release/transform old roles that are no long serving , and develop and practice new roles.Trauma, addictions, eating disorders , relationship repair , strength -building , spiritual matters, and more can all addressed be addressed psychodramatically .

Even as a child, I was on a mission, driven to discover the fullness of well-being. I danced, acted in theatre, played the piano, read, wrote poetry and as I grew discovered that it was – no, it is – the creative process that holds the power to heal. At the same time, I knew that the body is the battleground, holding the pain of unresolved life stories. This led me to the field of health and fitness – becoming a certified group fitness instructor, personal trainer, and health coach, with a concentration in nutrition and eating disorders.
Then, when I experienced my first psychodrama workshop, I exclaimed ,”Psychodrama! Where have you been all my life?!” It was that day that I signed up for training to become a certified psychodramatist. Immersed in this field, I became a board certified trainer-educator-practitioner of psychodrama, sociometry and group psychotherapy as well as a trainer in a specialized psychodramatic trauma treatment method: The Therapeutic Spiral Model. Being faithful to the bodymindheartspirit connection, I earned certification as a yoga instructor and Master Reiki Teacher. In collaboration with professionals from a variety of fields, I have interwoven these modalities to create a unique and wholistic strategy of healing.
As a recipient of a psychodrama award focused on increasing utilization and awareness of psychodrama, my efforts are now to inspire and mentor others. I am passing on what I have learned through written articles, co-authorship of a book, presentations at workshops and conferences, and I am now currently co-developing an innovative webinar series to introduce action methods. I am deeply devoted to the words of JL Moreno, the founder of psychodrama, who once said, “No truly therapeutic endeavor can have as its mission anything less than the healing of all humankind.”
