My Approach to Helping


Here are some common reasons people contact me:

-Nothing feels like it makes sense. You may be angry, frustrated, exhausted, or experiencing other emotional issues. You want to feel at home in your body and feel safe again. I can’t wave a magic wand and make your pain go away, but I can help you focus on your needs.

-It feels like no one ‘gets’ you which might be true because you’ve gone through something life-changing. It can be scary to talk about your experiences, but I offer talk therapy in addition to other types of therapy (such as Art Therapy and a trauma therapy called EMDR) that don’t require you to tell your whole story unless you want to.

-While there’s no ‘right’ way to heal, there are ways to help you decrease your suffering. I teach new skills and check-in on what works for you.

-You need help trusting yourself and hearing your intuition instead of second-guessing. I work with you to restore your relationship with yourself. You need reassurance that your experience and responses are valid and normal.

-You want to be able to focus on yourself again and all of the dreams you thought you lost along the way. You want to be able to think about your future and feel hopeful instead of constantly ruminating over what "couldshould" have happened differently.

Psychedelic Integration

You’ve taken psychedelics or experienced a “non-ordinary” state through breathwork, meditation, or artwork and you’re not quite sure how to make meaning of the insights you had. Or maybe you had Ketamine therapy and feel confused about it. Perhaps you’ve read Michael Pollan’s book and you’re excited about the potential of psychedelic medicine work. But you’re wondering “what’s next?“

That’s a question we can answer together. Most people need extra support in relating to unfamiliar experiences. Non-ordinary states can be a challenge to understand and you’re not alone in having this challenge! Psychedelic experiences can be healing but they can also bring up trauma or feel scary or intense. I offer you a safe, non-judgmental space to receive the voice of your inner self, clarify or set intentions, step into deeper self care, and identify changes you’d like to make in your life. Our co-creative work can help you see your next steps as you deepen your understanding of non-ordinary experiences and bringing your insights into the day-to-day.

Please be aware that I work through a harm reduction lens and hold your well-being in mind. In my role, I do not provide any legal or medical advice but I support you in finding a deeper understanding about your experiences. I do not encouragesuggestrecommend the use (or purchasesale) of illegal substances. I do recommend you educate yourself via multiple reputable resources about psychedelic use and can point you toward harm reduction resources.
Before contacting me, please know that I:

Do not provide any psychedelicpsychoactive substances to anyone

Do not provide “sitter“ services for those using illegal psychedelic substances

Will not refer you to any underground services, anyone who provides “sitter“ services, or anyone who administerssells any psychedelic substance

Will not work you while you are under the influence of psychedelic substances

Ask for the utmost respect surrounding my legalethical boundaries related to this work

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

I envision a world where we are attuned to ritual. Where we can use creative processes to explore and heal with the help of others or on our own. I envision a world where we can harness creative energy and use the flow state for healing. Therapy is a place for exploring other worlds and entering into different parts of time. I see the therapists' role as serving as a guide between these spaces. I offer tools and vision, space, and energy.
