I’ve loved this work for 30 years and that love has roots in my own childhood dreams. A member of the International Association for the Study of Dreams for many decades, my original dream work mentors include Jeremy Taylor, Arnold Mindell, Gayle Delaney and Stephen Aizenstat. My masters is in counseling psychology and doctorate in East-West Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies, San Francisco (1995) where I also trained at The Jung Institute and other training centers. I’ve enjoyed facilitating dream groups nationwide and teaching psychology for many years at John F. Kennedy University and later at the University of North Carolina.
Over the years so many dreamers have shared their dreams with me and each one has been a treasured source of inspiration. I hope you’ll share your dream discoveries too. Feel free to contact me about a Dream Consult, Independent Study and CEU credit opportunities. And check out my other site: HollyeHurst

“I’m so grateful for our work together, especially for your expertise with dreams. I also loved the sand play work I did with you. I’m very grateful you’ve been there for me.” Clare, Santa Cruz
“This work has really opened my eyes to how much meaning and guidance my dreams offer each night. I appreciate that you helped me uncover the dream’s meaning that rings true for me. You asked me just the right questions to help me make my life dreams become a reality.” Chris, San Francisco
"My work with Hollye was transformational. Her compassionate, creative, and intelligent approach helped me to establish the tools that I needed to communicate more effectively with my loved ones and quiet my anxiety around life’s large and small challenges. I chose to work with her initially to delve into dream work for better self-understanding. The experience was priceless!" T.M., Santa Cruz
"I worked with Hollye and her Dream Discovery Workbook for a year. I’d been a “dreamer” for most of my life, but through Hollye’s mentoring, I learned how to look at dreams in an entirely different way. The workbook has greatly broadened my understanding of the dream world and given me a framework to record and interpret my dreams which has been really helpful. I used to just write my dreams down and never really knew what to do with them after that, but now I have a way to continue to see how they’re informing my life. It’s also really fun!" C.S.
“Our work together really laid the groundwork for the rest of my adult life. You helped me get through some seriously challenging issues helping me figure out who I was, that I was okay and I could heal. Thank you!”
B. Smith, Berkeley
