Licensed social worker Miriam Kirscht is the founder of Improvisation Heals, a mental health practice that combines improv games and therapy. She’s been combining her interest in mental health and theater for decades, and started drop-in improvisation groups a year ago.
Her initial focus was on young adults ages 18 to 30 who are experiencing anxiety or social difficulties. Kirscht landed on the idea of improv for young people dealing with anxiety after noticing that her young adult clients were experiencing high levels of stress and social isolation.
However, Kirscht has now expanded the group to include all adults interested in working on anxiety and social anxiety. Kirscht has firsthand experience with the therapeutic power of theater, especially improv. She says taking theater classes and performing in high school and college helped her overcome her own shyness and “provided some escape.”
What Miriam says about herself:
I have a life-long love of theatre and for making a difference in others’ lives. I have training as an actor and director, and have been a psychotherapist and mental health professional for over 20 years. I have Masters degrees in both theatre and social work, and practice experience with a wide range of settings and clients. I have seen improvisation make a difference for people that traditional “talk therapy” did not. Hope you will come play with us!
