Online Course:
Incorporating Effective Dream Work into Counseling Practice:
Putting the Five Star Method to Work

If you are interested in learning an innovative approach to dream analysis, then please feel free to take this online course. It is currently offered as a CE course for licensed counselors, in collaboration with Atlantic University in Virginia Beach.

This online course is a fine introduction to the approach to dream analysis that I teach in my online dream analysis mentoring and certification program through DreamStartm Institute, at If you are interested in an in-depth mentoring, or certification in this approach, please check out the DreamStar site.

Register by emailing me and letting me know that you'd like to take the course. I will then look forward to receiving your quiz and survey at the end of the course. I will also contact you afterward to ask you some further questions regarding the amount of time that you spent on the course, so please log your time spent.

The course will not cost you anything during this time, but neither will CEs will awarded until (and unless) NBCC approves Atlantic University as a certified CE provider. That application process will soon be underway.
