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.

Can Dreams Give You a Heads Up About Your Health?

June 14, 2018

I attended the Haden Institute Summer Dream Conference a few weeks ago.  I go every year and this year’s conference was the best one I’ve attended in a long time.  One of the breakout workshops was given by Dr. Larry Burk, a radiologist, who has recently published a book with his friend Kathleen O’Keefe Kanavos about dreams that give an early warning about disease in the body.  Specifically, this new book, Dreams That Can Save Your Life, recounts experiences of 18 women who had dreams referencing breast cancer and how those dreams propelled them to seek treatment often before any symptoms were evident.  Fascinating!  Dr. Burk was very familiar with two other books on this subject: She Who Dreams by Wanda Burch and Healing Dreams by Marc Ian Barasch.

Here’s what these types of dreams have in common:  They often include deceased loved ones or medical professionals; unlike other kinds of dreams, they often, but not always, present in a more literal way – the dreamer is often directed outright to seek medical treatment; they have a clarity and urgency; they often depict spiders or crabs….


I brought Dr. Burk’s book home with me and I’ve just about finished it.  I recommend all three books.  Another reason to pay attention to your dreams!
