Timothy A. Storlie, PhD

Psychologist, Hypnotherapist, Futurist, and Daydreamer

Hello! My name is Timothy Storlie. I’m a PhD psychologist, licensed counselor, MSW social worker, hypnotherapist, and author. A passionate advocate for the study of the dreaming brain, I specialize in the study of consciousness, spirituality, sports performance enhancement, and stress management. I've written several dream-related papers and recently finished development of this advanced-level course on intentional daydreaming

You might be wondering, why I created the Intentional Daydreaming course? Simple. Because—as a life-long daydreamer—I knew how beneficial daydreaming can be—especially when it comes to accelerating personal growth and professional development.

As a psychologist specializing in dream work, I knew daydreaming was a normal brain activity that just about anyone could use. But, there was a problem! Although 100’s of books were available that focused on night-time dreaming, when it came to day dreaming, there were only a handful! Even then, most of the “good stuff” was available only to those brave enough to enter the dry world of academic journals.

So—long story short—one afternoon about 3 years ago, I had a daydream that provided information, insight, and inspiration. I dreamt about creating a simple daydreaming system that would provide all the really “good stuff” with jargon-free explanations and practical methods that people could use to help accelerate personal and professional success. This special course is the result of that creative daydream and I hope you’ll enjoy completing it as much as I did developing it!
