What is Dream Nurturing?

Someone once asked me in passing, “I always dream about cats. What do cat dreams mean?” I wish I could have told her what those cat dreams meant – but in the end I could not. Learning the language of someone’s dreams takes time, patience and care, and my approach is that the meaning of dreams varies greatly from person to person.

Dreamwork is a term generally used to illustrate the exploration of dreams in therapy and counseling. Most therapists agree that the use of dreamwork in their practice often helps people problem solve, promote self-awareness, and improve overall health and wellness.

As an existential therapist, I refer to dreamwork as “Dream Nurturing.” It is more than just a question of semantics, as I do not analyze or interpret your dreams based on any set of preconceived notions or theories. Rather, my role is to act as a guide in the exploration of the dream, allowing you the opportunity to discover the unique meaning(s) of your dream(s). I will encourage you to foster growth and creativity in your dreaming life and to use these tools as a means to better understand your sense of self and being-in-the-world.

Your Dreams Are Talking…Are You Listening?

Dream research could have major clinical implications down the road. Dr. Allan Hobson, a sleep researcher at Harvard Medical School, argues that dreaming may help scientists understand the nature of consciousness, and therefore could greatly impact our knowledge of mental illness and mental wellness.

I have spent many years studying dreams in theory and in practice, and I am now offering Dream Nurturing Sessions exclusively online at eTalkTherapy.  Together we will explore and nurture the rich tapestry of your dreaming life. Contact me today. I look forward to meeting you.
