Listening To Messages From Your Unconscious Mind

What do your dreams mean?? In this episode of Woman Worriers, host Elizabeth Cush talks with Dr. Lourdes Viado about digging deep into the unconscious mind and trying to understand what it might be trying to tell us.

When clients are open to working with their dreams, it really enriches, deepens and, I feel, accelerates the therapy.
— Lourdes Viado
