Career Highlights

Hello, my name is Angela M Grayson and I am the Proprietor and CEO of Good Fruit Expressive Arts Counseling and Psychotherapy. I have provided behavioral health services in the Delaware Valley since 1994 and received educational training at Saybrook University (Clinical Psychology doctoral candidate), Drexel University (MA in Creative Arts Therapy), and the University of Delaware (BA in Psychology).  In addition to being a Licensed Professional Counselor and Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist, I am also a Licensed Minister of Dance. These unique training experiences intertwine into a mind, body and spirit approach which is the foundation of the practice.

As a clinician, I specialize in helping social service professionals and organizations address personal and work-related stress through creative means so that they can maximize their potential and avoid burnout. My unique approach builds a therapeutic partnership to work through current struggles using creative and dynamic techniques specific to your needs. During our partnership I may implement a combination of Humanistic, African-centered and Transpersonal psychology which helps to uncover, explore, express, and heal the whole self emotionally, cognitively, socially, physically, and spiritually.

In addition to being a guest lecturer in the Creative Arts in Therapy program at Drexel University, I am often called upon as a professional speaker and conference presenter in the areas of stress management, anger management, creativity and spirituality.

Professional roles I fulfill include being a member of the Board of Directors of the American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA) serving as a charter member and the first national Chairperson of the Multicultural and Diversity Committee (ADTA MDC). Likewise, I serve as Interim President of the Pennsylvania Chapter of ADTA and Vice President of the Black Americans and African Descendants Affinity Group. I am on the Board of Directors of the Family and Marriage Institute of Delaware and I am also affiliated with the Association of Black Psychologists, the American Psychological Association, the Delaware Psychological Association, the National Liturgical Dance Network, and the Sacred Dance Guild.
