Through the ages, dreams have been recognized as important for self-understanding, awakening to unconscious material, and the expansion of spiritual awareness.
When I work with dreams, I maintain my interest in the experience of the person with whom I am working, helping them to enter more fully into their dream. I encourage them to pull from the dream what it seems to be bringing to them, rather than imposing my own interpretation of the dream. We often find that working with dreams in this way further illuminates the issues we are working on in therapy.
I have training and experience in working with dreams from a number of perspectives. I have learned and practiced Jungian approaches. I have received training from Steve Aisenstadt of Pacifica Graduate Institute in his method of dreamtending, which incorporates the world unconscious into dream work. I have also been studying and practicing Robert Bosnak’s Embodied Imagination dream work through Cynthia Anne Hale, Ph. D.
