I entered a psychology PhD program because I was interested in guided imagery. Imagery makes use of the mind's active imagination in healing physical and emotional wounds. I was introduced to imagery in 1997 by my friend, Annabelle Nelson PhD, who developed receptive imagery for emotional health. I chose Saybrook University because I wanted to study with Jeanne Achterberg PhD, who established active imagery for physical conditions. I use general healing imagery when leading meditation and yoga.
