About My Clients

I have over ten years experience working with psychedelic harm-reduction and integration practices, that include syncretic western, eastern and indigenous modalities. I have background in ADHD and self-identified neurodivergent groups. Conscious mens work, conscious relationship work, child and teenager challenges, anxiety, depression, OCD, unclear and unnameable burdens of daily life, life transitions.

My Background and Approach

Using an integrative mind-body approach we will start with finding out what is going on the moment, and provide techniques to deepen that understanding, as well as control or work with big feelings or thoughts. Using the innate intelligence of our organism to help us move through the challenges and blockages mentally, emotionally and behaviorally/physically. This includes re-parenting, attachment work, somatic-informed. I am with you, at your pace, every step of the way. We will lay out goals for our work, and our work will be individually tailored to help facilitate the most healing.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am in this line of work to assist peoples wild-intelligence, and for true liberation of our most core and whole selves. I believe it is looking into and at, fearlessly, the aspects we shame and hide away, our shadow-aspects of ourselves that can help garner relief and free up our capacities to act, and be in the world as liberated and authentic beings. Not without any struggles but with the resilience and calm it takes to participate with our true nature. I believe we have to clear the ground for a new way of living to land into us. Giving our life an open heart, and chance to meet us. Direct experience of life is that meeting ground, and in that space, we exist, with joy and discipline being our right, and our dance partners. I think we may all be here to turn our lights on. To give meaning to our life and the life around us, and to express and give thanks to the wonderful world, that we can be stewards of this magical world. Thats tricky because that means being witnessed.
