Drama therapist Dr. Joyce Marrie is the Founder and Executive Director of Crossroads Panorama, a community-based arts program that empowers youth and young adults who are at a crossroads in their lives. Through her work at Crossroads Panorama, Dr. Marrie gives a lifeline to finding purpose, self-worth and healing through theater and related art forms.
As a drama therapist, “I discovered years ago that ‘mirroring’ can have a powerful therapeutic effect on both actors and audience. Seeing someone else overcoming pain and trauma can enable solutions for our anxieties.” Crossroads has implemented creative arts programs for youth and their families in the Twin Cities for more than 40 years.
