How I work with clients
I am trained in cognitive therapy but typically have a more open and integrative approach with my clients. I believe we all have the desire and innate ability to move towards healing and see my role as assisting others in finding their way. I believe integration of psychedelic and mystical consciousness is necessary to get the most out of these intense experiences.
