In 2012, I had my first psychedelic and plant medicine ceremonies in Costa Rica.
An avid psychonaut since first trying LSD as a 19 year old college student…
exploring psychedelic trips in connection with nature and music and delving into the research on their therapeutic use. In my 20s after reading Dr. Oscar Janiger’s pioneering studies on LSD and the creative process, I knew I would enter this field of study in the future.
After almost two decades of private education - degrees in Psychology and Art Therapy, training in Somatic, Trauma-Informed, Couples, Hypnosis, Family Constellations, Medical Burnout, and Psychedelic Assisted Therapies - the sociopolitical climate is shifting in favor of decriminalization and legalization.

Our ProcessOverview of Experience:
Our initial consultation is about vetting you for psychedelic journeying. Are you ready? Is now the right time? What's going on in your life? What's your past mental health history? Etc. My intake is based on both clinical and personal questioning and understanding.
I follow a "start small and work your way up" approach to psychedelics.
My intentions are that you have a positive experience and any potential internal challenges occur within a safe and comfortable container. Using co-regulation exercises I help my clients establish trust in me as a person and spaceholder. Creating the container together is paramount to parasympathetic engagement.
I'm known for talking people off the ledge into a more rational view of what psychedelics are and what they can do for you. When you come to me, I will help you establish courage and realistic expectations.
A journey with me focuses on music. As we amplify and ground all vibrations, providing a positive environment with carefully curated music and sounds is essential. Breathwork is one of the most important elements I use for working with your inner healing wisdom. Establishing clarity in intentions and needs is important for us to align on your transformational experience.
Integration is different for everyone. Sometimes we use movement, art therapy, somatic approaches and other modalities. I have a massive toolkit gained painstakingly over years of research education and training in how to process psychological material based on your preferred learning styles and emotional intelligence.
