G. Scott Graham, MS, LADC
Rostered Psychotherapist, Licensed Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor, Clinical Supervisor
Scott’s work begins with psychedelic preparation. He uses the Psychedelic Preparedness Scale to inform and plan your psychedelic experience. In addition, Scott emphasizes the importance of developing psychological flexibility to better engage with the psychedelic experience. He makes use of the Flexibility Index Test (FIT-60) to identify focal areas to address using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in the months prior to your psychedelic experience. Measuring the real impact of your psychedelic experience is important to Scott, and to that end, he utilizes the Watts Connectedness Scale BEFORE and AFTER your psychedelic experience to assess the results you can see. Scott focuses on long-term integration strategies with clients and develops a 10-month plan with measurable objectives to help you transcend your psychedelic experience. His coaching and planning revolve around his Psychedelic Integration Workbook which is available in softcover or print-at-home-PDF versions.
Scott is the author of 18 books and counting, including the Psychedelic Integration Workbook. He is currently writing a book on psychedelic engagement. Scott is driven to help clients follow their “true azimuth,” which is different from “true north.” It means coaching clients to identify the true focus of their lives — something that speaks individually to them. It means recognizing the forces that push our lives off course and adjusting to them so you get where you want to go. It means that when you are 90 years old and you look back on your life you have a sense of pride, accomplishment, and meaning — with no regrets. When he is not coaching people to be their very best, Scott manages a non-profit farm animal rescue. Scott participates in Tough Mudders, teaches Sun 73 Tai Chi, stand-up paddleboards with his dogs Groot and Rocket, and goes camping at State Parks throughout New England as much as possible. His daily spiritual practice focuses on anāpānasati, vipassanā, and mettā-bhāvanā meditation. Scott believes service is vital to a life well-lived: he volunteers as an EMT Instructor, as a Firefighter, and as a Master Gardener in his community.
