ADDITIONAL SERVICES

Dream Interpretations

Denise believes that dreams are a way to listen to your own deep inner wisdom and to God (as you understand God).

Dreams tell us what needs attention in our lives and give clues to changes that would make us happier and healthier and more fulfilled.

She has drawn from her Ph.D in Psychology of Religion, her studies in Jungian psychology, Christian spirituality, and life coaching to develop a simple method of hearing the messages in your dreams.

Denise asks purposeful questions to guide you to determine the messages from your dreams and to choose the actions you would like to take in response to them.

“Dr. Massey helped me to better understand the nature of dreams and their symbolism, which has helped me to live a more integrated life.”
Dr. Mark Parnell, Spiritual Director

“One of the most useful courses I took in seminary was Dr. Massey’s class, Spiritual Care through the Interpretation of Dreams.

Dr. Massey taught a step-by-step process that empowered us to understand the symbols and meanings in our dreams as a way of recognizing where we are growing and what needs tending in our waking life.

I have continued to use this process, both personally and with a dream partner, as an act of spiritual discipline and as a tool for my own personal growth.”

Rev. Nikki Hardeman, Director of Outreach & Alumni Relations, Mercer School of Theology

“Denise’s seminar taught me so much. Very helpful, and always asking the right question at the right time.

It taught me how to generate a ‘buy in’ with other groups, especially the younger generation, as well as create my OWN coaching model.

If someone had taught me coaching when I started, it would have made a huge difference. What we’re looking for is transformation, and that’s what her teaching taught me.”
