The name Dream Again Therapy is inspired by J.L. Moreno, the founder of Psychodrama. It is from a statement Moreno made to Sigmund Freud, one of the founders of psychoanalysis.
“I attended one of Freud’s lectures. He had just finished an analysis of a telepathic dream. As the students filed out, he singled me out from the crowd and asked me what I was doing. I responded, ‘Well, Dr. Freud, I start where you leave off. You meet people in the artificial setting of your office. I meet them on the street and in their homes, in their natural surroundings. You analyze their dreams. I give them the courage to dream again. You analyze and tear them apart. I let them act out their conflicting roles and help them to put the parts back together again.'”
The goal of my work as a therapist is always to help my clients put the pieces of themselves back together, and to help them find the courage to dream again.
