Even after nearly 40 years as a therapist, each time I begin to work with people I feel as though I am walking on holy ground. Each person who comes to me willing to be vulnerable and open to the change necessary to bring about greater relational happiness and deeper personal awareness is treated with profound respect. Therapy takes courage to face that part of ourselves that may be limiting or sabotaging our relational and personal growth.
My style is non-blaming, eclectic and active incorporating cognitive, developmental, systemic and psychodynamic modalities. A licensed MFT, I've had specialized training in Family Reconstruction, dream work,Gestalt, ACOA issues, sexual abuse trauma, EMDR, TFT and spiritual issues among others.
My practice includes individuals, couples, adolescents, and groups. Serving my professional associates, I'm a frequent workshop presenter across the country and Internationally. Having spent many years leading women's groups nationally and in Ireland, presently I'm doing Family Reconstruction and Dream Groups. Groups are formed at the beginning of each year.

Josette Nard's Groups

Men's and Women's Dream Groups

"The dream is the theatre where the dreamer is at once: scene, actor, prompter, stage manager, author, audience and critic." - Carl Jung. Throughout history dreams have played an important part in most sacred traditions providing healing, guidance, inspiration and connection to our unconscious worlds. Dreams are like letters to ourselves about ourselves from ourselves. They seek to bring us to a sense of balance and wholeness. Dreams are shared from a Jungian perspective using Jeremy Taylor's "If it Were My Dream" technique. Participants discover the meanings of symbol image and the expanded story of each particular dream. Meets monthly with 6-8 participants.

Family Reconstruction

Family Reconstruction is a powerful, therapeutic growth process. Developed by Virginia Satir using gestalt techniques, psychodrama, genograms, fantasy and body sculpting. Family Reconstruction involves spending a day re-enacting the significant events in an individual's family history back three generations. He/She having his/her reconstruction done is called the Explorer. Having done a significant amount of homework the Explorer, on the day of his/her reconstruction chooses from the group individuals to "play" members of his/her family. No acting is required. Family Reconstruction provides an individual with a fresh perspective because the Explorer can "see" how his/her parents lives were shaped.

Women's Gathering West Suburbs Chicago/DC/Ireland

**Presently Closed ** My colleague from DC and I facilitate two annual groups of Women Gathering which meets in the fall for a long weekend. We use mythology, dream work, journaling, music, movement, poetry, and creative expression to help women explore their own inner journey. These weekends are powerful times that often help each person to uncover ways that are sabotaging or blocking her growth as an individual.
