I combine over 25 years of experience and education across clinical psychology, psychopharmacology, mindfulness, neuropsychology, health and wellbeing, lifestyle change, and leadership coaching, to provide a truly individualized and informed approach. I begin the integration process before the psychedelic experience to set the stage at the neuronal level for the true growth and transformative healing and change that is possible through psychedelic medicine. My approach is based on the integration of mind, body, and self. I utilize the THRIVE Model of Psychedelic Integration™ that combines the knowledge, wisdom, and traditions from indigenous cultures, evidence from modern psychedelic research, and psychoeducation into a holistic case-formulation framework. This framework guides the identification and assessment of specific areas relative to the human experience that history and research have shown to be the most relevant to the integration of psychedelic experiences and journeys. This model of integration allows us to: 1. Identify and clarify your goals 2. Set appropriate intentions and identify the right setting 3. Identify areas of strength, challenge, potential, and growth 4. Identify and begin developing specific practices, habits, skills, education, and training that are taken into and strengthened by the psychedelic experience 5. Integrate the psychedelic experience to promote true healing and create sustainable long-term change
I grew up in the South Pacific and have been interested in alternative and complimentary medicine since I was a child watching my grandmother help and heal others using ayurvedic practices. I was fortunate enough to have traveled around the world when I was younger and before moving to the United States. My parents were academics and teachers and my sister and I spent the better part of each year traveling around the world experiencing things and people as they are. Seeing people live and being part of their environment was an invaluable experience that taught me humility, patience, kindness, and that, although health and healing looks different across cultures, the root of it all is the easing of suffering for individuals, their loved ones, and the communities in which they live. I received my doctorate from Louisiana State University where I majored in clinical psychology and minored in neuropsychology and psychopharmacology. I have worked in nursing homes, developmental centers, psychiatric hospitals, and community mental health centers. I am also an executive coach and have consulted for hospitals, foster care systems, local, state, and federal government agencies, as well as private organizations around the world. I have over 70 publications, presented and trained clients all over the globe, and am passionate about the power of education and healing.
