I work with people who are considering whether psychedelics are right for them, who are preparing to use a psychedelic, or who are seeking to integrate. I've helped my patients make the most of both positive and difficult experiences, while reducing negative outcomes. This expertise has been developed through work with my patients, my training in and provision of MDMA-assisted Psychotherapy for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Integrative Harm Reduction for Substance Use Disorders, and from teaching other health providers about Psychedelic Integration through Fluence Psychedelic Training.

Sometimes along our journeys we learn ways of thinking and feeling that aren’t most helpful to us later on. I offer an opportunity to consider unlearning what isn’t serving us and to find new ways of thinking. Other times, we’d all just benefit from an extra layer of support; time set aside that’s all ours. Most of all, the work we do will allow you to feel some relief, comfort, connection, the opportunity to experience positive feelings, and sit with the hard ones.
