About

Bio

Hello, I am Dr. Beverly Dexter, Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Retired Navy Commander with 4 shipboard tours and 3 tours with Marines and Army stateside and in Iraq. I am an expert in the prevention and treatment of combat and other trauma and am the author of "No More Nightmares: How to Use Planned Dream Intervention to End Nightmares." My original theory, Planned Dream Intervention has been extremely successfully taught to over 35,000 people world wide, is a one-time three hour class, and the majority of students stop being woken up by their dreams as of the day of the class. I teach my No More Nightmares class over Skype or VTC, or in person. With decades of serving families in distress, I also developed a manual and CD, "Resilient Relationships" that many families report completely turned around the family or couple miscommunications, hurt feelings and fights. All of these trainings are very user-friendly and safe. Please ask me for more information or to see about individual sessions. Wishing you peaceful nights and days free of anxiety.
