“Nothing I do is separate from others, all of it is a conversation.”
Rythea Lee is a professional dancer and multi-disciplinary artist giving voice to personal and shared stories of healing. As a performer and director, she produces performances that balance intensity with humor, highly physical dance with spoken word, and social commentary with personal story. Her music is a central part of her most recent show and is featured on her CD, Something Knows You.
Rythea Lee is a counselor with a private practice in Northampton, MA and also counsels people all over the country through phone sessions. She is a trauma specialist, has her Masters in Spiritual Psychology and is certified as an InnerBonding® counselor. Her book,”Trauma into Truth: Gutsy Healing and Why It’s Worth It” includes original artwork and is a resource for those on the healing path.
Rythea Lee has a great passion for teaching and assisting others to become more creative, expressive, emotionally intelligent, and connected to life. She is currently teaching courses on Peer Counseling, a practice of peer to peer emotional support.
Her newest project is the making of a 20-Episode youtube advice show that can be described as interactive healing through humor called Advice From a Loving Bitch. Rythea just released the Advice from a Loving Bitch Curriculum for individuals and groups who need a manual to go with the free video content.
Rythea has co-facilitated Healing Self-Hatred Support Groups with Divinah Erving for the past 3 years. They are 10-week therapeutic groups that use the Advice from a Loving Bitch Curriculum to take people through a deep process of dismantling the self-hating voices that torment our lives. The group helps participants develop and strengthen a Loving Adult aspect of self that can take over the self-harming voices of our past. The group support is a huge part of why this process is effective. Check out the www.rythea.com/teaching page to find out about the next group.
Rythea has a Patreon art group that you can join if you want monthly sharings of her recent writings, songs, articles, or photos, for as little as $3 a month. Check it out at https://www.patreon.com/rythealee
Rythea’s blog, Gutsy Healing: Reflections on Motherhood, Art, and Consciousness is another way to be connected with Rythea through her writing, more personal videos and photos, and links to articles on Inner Bonding®, Peer Counseling, and other materials on healing.
