...then you have come to the right place.
My methods are varied and geared to the learning and communication styles of my clients. I employ a wide variety of traditional and non-threatening, playful and imaginative techniques in order to help you accomplish your goals. They include the principles of Archetypal Pattern Analysis, Dream Translation, Neuro-Linguistics, Creative Imagination, Treasure Mapping, Intuition, Story Telling, Jungian and Developmental Psychology, and the choices of resilient and happy people. I'm happy to work with clients on a short term basis, when appropriate, depending upon the needs of the individual or group.
Feel free to contact me with questions or to explore the possibility of our working together. I look forward to hearing from you.
My aim is to provide a safe, respectful, private, accepting environment in which an individual or small group can work to identify limiting beliefs and patterns, become aware of unproductive self-talk and images, make peace with the reality of past hurts and current changes, and master practical and creative strategies that can lead to greater personal uniqueness, desired accomplishments and more satisfaction in life.
My own life demonstrates how much there is to be said for the use of creativity in the areas of personal growth and healing. I've sometimes called myself a "wimpy adventurer," but through my own challenges, trial and error, inner work and studies, I've learned it's not necessary to be perfect in order to call oneself an artist, achieve one's dreams and become comfortable in one's own skin. My commitment is to "walk my talk." My passion is share what I've learned with others.
The images and stories in our dreams can be messages from our deeper selves confirming that the paths we're on in our waking lives are solid, taking us in positive directions and leading us to the places we really hope to go. These images can also alert us to a calling or talents we have ignored and still beg to be lived out.
On other occasions, they can serve to uncover unconscious, out of date or false road maps that can, when translated and articulated, provide reality checks and action plans toward improving our lives. Working with an objective, trained Dream Translator can greatly facilitate this process.
One of my client's told me, "I woke up one morning after I began studying Dream Translation, and realized I'd finally discovered the keys to sanity!"
