My experience as a researcher as well as my background in philosophy has taught me to value evidence-based practice. As a clinician, I respect the time you invest in therapy and I want to help ensure you are getting what you need. For this reason, we will incorporate ways to systematically track your progress in treatment, so that we can know if the therapy is really working or whether we need to make changes to make things go better. I believe there is much potential for psychedelics (e.g., psilocybin, MDMA, and ayahuasca) to be used as tools for personal growth. While I cannot facilitate access to or provide psychedelic substances due to their illegal nature, I offer a harm reduction approach for individuals who are seeking psychedelic experiences by providing accurate information about risks and benefits and then supporting clients to make informed choices that are right for them.
