I enjoy working in respectful collaboration with clients
I am a psychotherapist who works from a place of lived and learned experience with psychological trauma. I was motivated to enter into this field by the deep knowledge that healing from trauma - even extreme experiences of trauma - is possible. I have deep respect for fellow travelers who are working towards creating peace, joy, and love in their lives, and I love the work I do. I provide KAP, EMDR, and humanistic talk therapy. I am very excited about the possibility of providing psychedelic assisted psychotherapy in the very near future. I have special interest and experience in providing therapy to therapists, providing psychedelic integration therapy, and in working with individuals who live with dissociative identities and responses. I am a Non Binary Lesbian who is committed to working from an anti ableist/ anti oppression lens, and to creating access to therapy, especially KAP and psychedelic assisted therapies. I welcome the opportunity to work with individuals from all walks of life and I seek to work from a place of cultural humility and respect. In addition to my clinical work I offer supervision and consultation to therapists who are interested in learning more about psychedelic assisted therapies, and/or in deepening their work with individuals who dissociate. I am currently accepting waitlist clients for KAP, consultation, and adjunctive/short term psychedelic integration.
