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 ranging from community based mental health settings, private practice, and with populations experiencing poverty and acute distress.
I currently offer integration work and individual therapy through my private practice in addition to working in a high acuity patient's hospital setting. 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. Even more so than schooling, my varied personal and clinical experiences have came to shape the way that I engage with my Clients.
As such, I am not a strictly-by-the-books person and engage with a unique persona and therapeutic approach.
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 integrated themselves into my professional approach and perspective on mental health and wellness.
