I am a licensed psychologist based in San Francisco. I obtained my doctorate degree from UT-Austin and I also hold a post-doctoral degree in clinical psychopharmacology. I currently work as a principal investigator and therapist on the MAPS-sponsored Phase 3 clinical trial of MDMA-assisted therapy to treat PTSD. I was a founding member of Polaris Insight Center, a cutting-edge ketamine-assisted psychotherapy clinic in San Francisco where I served as CEO and CFO.

I am eternally grateful for the lineage of elders, ancestors, healers, and teachers who came before me, who taught me, and who make my work possible.Description of Services:
