Therapist InfoAbout Me:
I adopt a trauma-informed, holistic, and relational view using a unique '7 Lens' approach that I developed: Internal Family Systems; Grofian (based on the work of Stanislav Grof); Jungian (based on the work of Carl Jung); Mindfulness; Scientific; Shamanic; and Trauma/Somatic. This broad view allows me to flexibly meet your needs, whatever your experience, worldview, or goals. Further, as an over-thinker in recovery, I've come to appreciate that our memories, blocks, emotions, and traumas largely live in the body, and so need to be accessed and released through the body. The mind is a wonderful tool, but we can't simply think our way to betterment. This is why I'm drawn to tools and frameworks that work with and around the protective stories of the mind - psychedelics, Internal Family Systems, Somatic Experiencing, etc. - in order to target the emotional root and let our innate healing wisdom, evolved over millions of years, work its magic. I also try to underpin my work with a sense of playfulness wherever possible - this is serious work that requires reverence, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a few laughs along the way.Description of Services:

Our ProcessOverview of Experience:
I offer 2 main processes. One is a shorter process that includes the journey, 3 hour-long calls (i.e. 2 prep before and 1 integration after), and comprehensive prep and integration materials (written guides and guided meditations). This service is for so-called 'normal wells' (I'm not the biggest fan of that term) who are curious about trying psychedelics in a safe, structured, and intentional container.
For those wanting to do deeper inner work, experience has taught me this necessarily requires a longer process. In which case I offer a protocol that includes 9 hour-long calls and 3 journeys, as well as the prep and integration material.
I explain my reasoning in an essay I wrote called ‘Trauma Needs a Rebrand: Trauma, Psychedelics, the Limitations of Our Current Models, and Exciting Alternatives’: https://www.brighterpathways.co/post/trauma-needs-a-rebrandIntake Process:
I have a comprehensive health screening process that was developed in partnership with a PhD psychedelic researcher at Kings College University, one of the leading psychedelic research institutions in the world. This is followed by a 30-min call to discuss the assessment, the process, set expectations, and assess rapport.
