About My Clients

Clients come to me with a variety of concerns, goals and backgrounds, generally seeking psychedelic therapy to reconnect with their core self or "inner healing wisdom". I work with trauma/PTSD, OCD (including pure O, and scrupulosity), anxiety, depression, existential/spiritual/religious distress, grief, LGBTQ+, identity struggles. I hold diagnoses/labels lightly and am mindful of their potential pitfalls.

My Background and Approach

Currently I am only providing psychedelic-assisted therapy. Right now, Ketamine is the only legal psychedelic in Minnesota- we will be working with MDMA and psilocybin as soon as they are available. I am eclectic and use techniques, concepts and practices from various psychological and philosophical orientations, scientific models, and art forms. The tools, strategies and ideas we use are introduced in the "language", perspective and style most familiar to you, so that you feel connected and understood while exploring the different paths towards meaningful contact with your life, values and relationships. I work with clients collaboratively to build a process and curate experiences that are unique to the individual. We explore struggles, intentions, beliefs, worldviews and interpersonal dynamics and work out an approach that most resonates. I am a musician and creative person, and support clients in finding their creative voice, and connection to personal meaning.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that we suffer from a crisis of meaning, and that we've lost our connection to the natural world. At some point, all of our ancestors existed within living mythological systems (some more recently than others). Modernity and scientific materialism has largely destroyed such connections, and humankind is now deprived of our intimate relationship to nature, the universe and reality itself. We are wired for this type of connection, and without it we starve. I believe that ultimately we are all the same thing, and the idea that we are separate from nature ("man conquering the natural world") is a dangerous illusion. I believe that we need to work together to resolve a multitude of social inequalities, and ensure that everyone has a seat at the table. We must have and value diversity or we will suffer, socially, the same fate that mono-cultural crops do: they tend to get wiped out because they lack variation and fail to adapt.
