Sheva Ganz is an expressive arts therapist and licensed mental health counselor who works with children, adolescents and adults. She has specialized training and experience in education, play therapy, creative movement, and the therapeutic use of yoga, dance, meditation, and trauma recovery.
Sheva is the co-founder of Shift, which creates educational and experiential workshops designed for various ages, and teaches simple and creative techniques to navigate life's challenges. Additionally, Sheva specializes in separation and divorce recovery, working with individual, groups and families. Her workshop, Kid's Turn, allow for both parents and children to learn emotional awareness, communication and coping skills following divorce.
As an expressive arts therapist, Sheva realizes that no single approach is best for every individual. She utilizes a variety of techniques, therapeutic approaches and a broad range of creative modalities (such as art, music, movement, drama, etc), to facilitate solution-focused healing, trauma resolution, positive change and personal growth. Her favorite aspect of using expressive arts therapies is connecting people with the power of creativity, allowing them to access feelings and thoughts language alone cannot express.
Sheva believes that when we tap into an inner creative source, we can uncover deeper levels of subconsciousness, which promotes a more profound sense of healing. She encourages the use of arts therapies to discover the countless ways that creativity can enhance the quality of life and sense of wellbeing.
