InterPlay is an active, creative way to unlock the wisdom of the body. It uses movement, sound, storytelling, stillness, and contact to provide a powerful forum for creative expression, self-exploration, connection, and play.
Using simple incremental forms, it helps to free your body and your voice, deepen the connection with your creative self, bring breath and ease back into your life, and build awareness of the wisdom of your body, all while cultivating meaningful community connection.
InterPlay is something that anybody can do—no experience is necessary. The focus is on exploration, authenticity, and enjoyable personal and group expression—all you need is a willingness to engage. Expect to laugh, savor and relax & be surprised by what you can do!
If you enjoy creative expression, self-exploration, and meaningful community connection, you'll likely enjoy InterPlay. Come join us for a joyful, creative, and transformative experience!

In addition to running a full-time therapy practice, Lee loves using creative expression, drama, and movement for self-exploration and personal growth, as well as for the joy and fun of it, and she deeply appreciates how InterPlay weaves together many of these threads into one cohesive system. Lee lives in Traverse City, but has been leading InterPlay across Michigan, helping to seed communities in various locations, including Traverse City, Ann Arbor, Charlevoix, Petoskey and Detroit.
