Biography

I am a licensed psychotherapist with over 20 years of experience working with clients from diverse populations. I provide psychotherapy that is tailored to the unique needs of my clients. My training and experience include in-depth psychodynamic therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, trauma-informed treatment, Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy, and harm-reduction based psychotherapy for integration of psychedelic experiences.

Through my experience as a Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapist and training as an MDMA therapist, I have witnessed the potential of psychedelic integrative treatment in alleviating suffering and decrease symptoms of many psychiatric, spiritual, and emotional issues including but not limited to: depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder; developmental trauma, medical trauma, substance issues, phase of life issues, premenstrual syndrome and other hormone issues, and relational issues. I work from a place of compassion and hope with the belief that healing and transformation are possible.

 

How I work with clients

My work is informed by in-depth psychodynamic therapy, Internal Family Systems, trauma-informed care, cognitive behavioral therapy, and crisis intervention. I work to create a non-judgmental, non-pathologizing space for clients who are curious, planning, or preparing to explore altered states of consciousness with the use of Ketamine and other psychedelic medications. Having the opportunity to process and integrate these experiences can help us to better understand feelings, issues, images, insights, perspectives, and spiritual and transformative experiences that can occur in altered spaces. Clients may also want to utilize psychedelic substances to work on processing and healing from difficult experiences that may have triggered trauma, painful memories, and emotional difficulties. Psychotherapeutic integration sessions offer an opportunity to use these experiences to further access the meaning, healing, and insight that can occur in altered states.

I also offer general psychotherapy and work to meet my clients where they are in term of their needs, issues, and desire for healing.
