About My Clients

You are stuck, confused, in pain. You are also curious about yourself and motivated to learn more about your patterns and relationships. You’re interested in psychedelics as a tool for healing and understanding, but not sure where to start. We can talk about intention, set and setting, and identifying potential barriers or harms that may arise. Taking psychedelics can be confusing and scary; it can also be wonderful and joyous. I can help you set up for these experiences safely and intentionally

My Background and Approach

I have been studying psychedelics professionally for around 20 years, including earning a PhD in clinical psychology investigating atypical psychedelics. At Yale School of Medicine I learned about and contributed to the latest neuroscientific research into psychedelic science. I’m also incredibly interested in spirituality, existential meaning, and nature. My approach is a healthy mix of modern scientific insight, inspired by Indigenous wisdom and practices, and the gritty reality of living in a modern capitalist society. I do not provide psychedelics or encourage you to break any laws. In a typical session with me, this might look like taking things slowly, noticing the body, and exploring associations and emotions.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I strive to help my clients connect with their inner healing intelligence. I believe that each of us seeks wholeness and healing and knows how to get there. The best that I can do is provide a supportive environment and remove obstacles so that my clients can heal themselves. Set and setting are important factors for understanding any psychedelic experience. The setting in which I work with my clients, and in which they use psychedelics, is capitalism. That, and many other aspects of society, is inherently imbalanced and unjust. I work with my clients at primarily an individual level, but I recognize that often larger social and institutional factors are at play in determining mental health and quality of life.
