I work collaboratively with medical and mental health professionals and experts as a team to provide care in the following areas: * Postpartum Depression * Postpartum Anxiety * Treatment-Resistant Depression * Trauma (birth specific and other) * General Anxiety I offer Ketamine-Assisted Therapy in collaboration with experienced and licensed local psychedelic integration therapists in Monterey County for appropriate candidates based on current medical guidelines and evidence-based research. We work as a team providing care that assures physical, emotional, and spiritual safety on your healing journey. We believe in combining scientific research within a setting that integrates nature, holistic healing modalities, and the essence of community. Our goal is to work with you to unlock your inner healer through a comprehensive holistic care plan that includes ketamine-assisted therapy to help you create tools for living a more whole and satisfying life. ​We have all completed the Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy and Research Certificate Program (CPTR) at the California Institute of Integral Studies, the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) training, and ketamine-specific clinician training at either Polaris Insight or The Ketamine Training Center's programs. ​Please contact me for information on my intake process, how ketamine works, guidelines for who is a good candidate, medical requirements, and fee information. Once medical clearance is complete in collaboration with the consulting physician, scheduling can be discussed. Number of medicine sessions, route of administration, and amount of preparatory and integration sessions will vary for each person.
I have been committed to social justice and global health my entire adult life. I am lucky enough to have had many opportunities to learn, explore, and work with various communities and individuals through that lens. My work spans the clinical setting in the primary care, women's health, midwifery, and mental health specialties. I have served in faculty, preceptor, coach, and public speaker roles. I also have worked with teams on a variety of global health research projects and programs in Africa, Asia, Europe, South America, and the Middle East. The common thread through all of this has always been to help bring balance to the lives of those I work with, secure health equity and sustainable equality, and to provide tools for people to be empowered to heal themselves and their communities.
