My therapeutic approach aims to bridge western psychology with entheogenic rituals & practices in order to support my clients in their healing journey. I have worked extensively in different therapeutic contexts, from community based mental health to populations experiencing acute psychiatric distress.
I currently offer integration work and individual therapy through my private practice as well as working in a high acuity inpatient hospital setting. Additionally, I have offered yoga and mindfulness practices to incarcerated individuals, working primarily with transitional age youth and formerly-gang involved inmates.
I myself am no stranger to suffering. My personal and clinical experiences have been depthful and varied and shape the way that I engage with my Clients.
For over 16 years entheogens have played a great role in my personal growth and the overall betterment of my wellbeing. Since 2010 I have worked intimately with Ayahuasca/Yajé and the cultural narratives surrounding these traditions have come to inform my professional approach and perspectives on mental health.
