His academic focus is on psychedelics harms and potential medical uses, and he has published in peer-reviewed academic journals on ibogaine, ketamine, and MDMA.

How I work with clients

I see patients in my private practice offices in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara. I work with ketamine for treatment resistant depression and treatment resistant PTSD. Ketamine treatments are done in the office with myself or mental health staff with specific training in working with non-ordinary states. I am leading the Los Angeles team for MDMA-assisted Psychotherapy for PTSD phase III studies, sponsored by MAPS, and hope that this will be offered at my clinics, pending FDA approval.
