I am a licensed psychotherapist with 14 years of experience helping people suffering from conditions like depression, anxiety, loss/grief and PTSD/trauma so that they can live happier more balanced lives.
My background includes working in intensive mental health settings such as UCSF’s Langley Porter Psychiatric Institute as well as my experience as a retreat facilitator and apprentice shaman at Blue Morpho Center for Shamanism and Ayahuasca in Peru, where I helped guide hundreds of people through their transformative journey with Ayahuasca and other plant medicines.
Currently I work in private practice in San Francisco where I continue to help people prepare for and integrate plant medicine ceremonies and entheogenic experiences.
How I work with clients
My approach to working with people draws from western psychotherapy, eastern spirituality, and various shamanic traditions. Some of the tools I use include EMDR, depth hypnosis, meditation/mindfulness, dream work, somatic awareness, guided visualizations, and journey work.
What these all have in common is that they work at levels beyond ordinary waking consciousness and offer access to deeper inner wisdom, guidance, and healing.
