Sometimes Doing Something Helps More Than Talk
We now understand that trauma not only lodges itself in the brain but also the body. We have also learned that you "hold" your beliefs about yourself in your body. Expressive Therapy gives the you an outlet that allows you to benefit from music, writing, movement, drama and artistic expressions.
R1:99 offers expressive therapy in individual and group formats.

Healing Arts Workshops
Creating art is a human right. Art honors and reflects multiple aspects of a person’s identity and personal experiences. No matter what one’s background, everyone has the power to create —they just need to be offered the opportunity.

The R1:99 philosophy is grounded in the idea that the art workshops are a “Window of Time” — a safe, non-judgmental space where participants can authentically express their identity, hopes, dreams, experiences and truths. In this environment, participants can fully benefit from the process of creating art.
