About Lael

"When asked what my Ph.D. in comparative literature has to do with working with dreams, I explain that it's essentially the same field but with a twist. Rather than working from books, I now help people compare the story they are telling themselves moment after moment, day in and day out with the much larger story that the deepest, truest, most fearless part of themselves is telling. What if you consider yourself a limerick when you are really an expansive, playful, poetic, seemingly endless yet utterly compelling, charming and brilliant postmodern novel?!!! May you never again miss out on the powerful, wonderful, sometimes very funny wisdom that emerges from within." --Lael Gold, Ph.D.
