Life-changing psychotherapy involves more than the therapist being supportive and asking you how you feel. It is more than just talking about your problem(s) — it involves real, measurable improvements in your quality of life. We will work together to make sure those changes happen.
Since the publication of Michael Pollan’s book, “How to Change Your Mind,” interest in using psychedelics for personal and spiritual growth is at an all-time high. Catherine Auman LMFT has been a specialist in psychedelic integration for many years and is recognized as one by MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies).
Psychedelic integration is the most important part of the healing journey. It is one thing to take psychedelics and have fun at a festival or concert (which there is nothing wrong with) and another to have the insights and experiences shown to you by psychedelic medicine actually change your life. Working with a skilled and experienced provider can make all the difference in the world.Credentials & Certifications: Certified Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, CAMFT Certified SupervisorLicenses: Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (30784)
