Suraya Susana Keating is a licensed marriage and family therapist, expressive arts therapist, registered drama therapist, and registered yoga instructor who helps youth and adults to be wildly self-expressed, joyful, and connected to their deepest self through an embodied, heart-based approach to psychotherapy. Keating’s healing work with others is influenced by years of experience with mindfulness-based, body-based practices that at the core are rooted in the idea that love for all parts of our selves is essential for healing and growth. Keating works individually with youth and adults to help them to access this core of self-love and to utilize the arts and the creative process to help call forth all the underlying parts of themselves that want to be seen, heard, and expressed. During the past 15 years, Keating has also worked extensively in the California prison system, using theatre as a tool for transformation with incarcerated men in the Marin Shakespeare Program at San Quentin State Prison, with men and women in Bay Area County Jails, and with teenagers in juvenile hall. Keating supervises M.F.T. interns and trains psychotherapists, teachers, and group facilitators in the use of the expressive arts (drama, movement, music, visual art, and creative writing) and drama therapy to deepen and enhance their work.
