Sybil Meyer is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT 21672). For most of her career, she has combined working in public mental health with a private practice in psychotherapy and expressive arts therapy.
She designed an independent major on the roots of creativity in playfulness for her BA degree at University of California in Santa Cruz, and earned a Masters Degree in Creative Arts Therapy at the University of San Francisco. She has taught Dance/Movement Therapy in colleges and private studios, as well as in a variety of therapeutic situations. She has supervised many expressive arts and psychotherapy interns and trainees in clinical settings, as well.
Sybil Meyer has been involved in dance and movement arts for most of her life-- studying and performing modern dance as a child; later performing and teaching Contact Improvisation, Motivity aerial dance, and now Motion Theater®. She has experience in a variety of art processes including drawing and painting, film and video production, and writing.
Sybil has studied Motion Theater® improvisation with Nina Wise since 2006, and completed her certification as a Motion Theater® teacher in 2014. Practicing Motion Theater® has strengthened her belief in the value and necessity of creative self expression. Motion Theater® addresses the profound need people have to be seen, heard, and witnessed in their efforts to make sense of our increasingly chaotic world; and to articulate their personal stories. The embodied narratives that are shared in Motion Theater® classes and performances help to affirm our lives in all their quirky particulars; allowing us to find humor and beauty in the midst of our personal and planetary struggles.
