Led By Lisa Kays, LICSW
Improv This, Improv That programs and groups are led by Lisa Kays, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LICSW), who integrates principles and practices of various modalities to support individuals in trying out new behaviors. In addition to psychotherapy, she has advanced training in improvisation as a performer and instructor.
Lisa believes the skills that make us good improvisers are those that make us good partners, friends, parents, and colleagues - listening, mutual support and trust, willingness to take risks, ability to collaborate, capacity to both lead and follow, and a sense of spontaneity and fun. These skills are the foundation.
Since 2015, more than 300 people - from professional therapists to individuals interested in self growth - have participated. Here's what some have shared about their experience.
"Being present and aligned with a client is one of the most healing things I can do. Improv requires that one be very attuned to what others are doing. Practicing [it] helps me tune in more deeply to my clients"
- Grace G.
"Improv taught me: that my mistakes are weird and wondrous gifts to be cherished, that adults NEED to play, that laughs are just as therapeutic as tearful heartfelt revelations."
- Campbell S.
"After a heavy week, improv class would infuse me with energy, leaving me feeling connected, capable, and with new perspectives on life, love and my practice."
- Erin M.
"There is remarkable healing in saying your truth out loud and power in those still suffering and struggling to hear their story reflected in someone else's experience."
- Jo S.
