NANCY DREYFUS: PSYCHOSPIRITUAL PSYCHOTHERAPIST & RELATIONSHIP COACH/AUTHOR
“A psychotherapist now for over 25 years, I see myself as a kind of transpersonal scout, helping people let go of external structures that no longer fit and orienting them to what it means to live a life based on their own insides.... I believe that we are all just beginning to learn what it means to be human…that we have many different parts, and the trick is to feel these parts without losing our Inner Grown-up. I believe I bring clarity and heart to the therapeutic process, and that my openness about my flaws and limitations will serve my clients and readers as well as my strengths.”
