You have a tool within you can access anytime – your dreams.  Our dreams, properly understood tell us the truth about ourselves. Dream work in counseling and coaching is a wonderful resource. Dreams give us pictures – images of our inner mind and our deeper wisdom. I don’t interpret your dream. My job is to teach you to discover the meaning in your dream for yourself.  Insight from this process often comes very quickly and is enough to solve specific problems.

In addition to problem-solving, dream work is also a way of enriching and deepening your understanding of yourself, your relationships and your creative potential.  Your dreams can guide you as you develop your potential to its fullest.
