Harnessing the Imagination for Wholeness
I learned an innovative method of therapy while pursuing my PsyD degree at Meridian University. Imaginal Psychology uses the healing power of imagination, along with many therapeutic orientations and techniques. it is a perspective which acknowledges that psychology has been around for a very long time under different guises –The Shaman, the Wise Woman, the Temple at Delphi, the Tribal Elders, the Buddha, and spiritual teachers.

Any healing or growth process requires going into the unknown, crossing a threshold, facing challenges, terrors, uncertainties, and strong emotions. Tragically, many people get stuck in the abyss of unhealed trauma. The costs and negative impacts on our world are immense. Using imagination, compassion, and the wisdom of my many years of practice, I help people bridge this chasm, to cross into a new, enriched life.
Let’s explore how we might work together.
