I have a private practice near San Luis Obispo, CA, where I practice a combination of psychotherapy and psychopharmacology, including ketamine-assisted psychotherapy and psychedelic integration services.


How I work with clients

My work begins with developing both a deep mutual understanding and safe connection with my patients. My approach is eclectic. I include psychospiritual interventions to compliment biological, psychodynamic, interpersonal, and cognitive-behavioral interventions. I combine trauma work when needed with awakening-relational practices to cultivate the capacity to love. I provide ketamine-assisted psychotherapy and psychedelic integration services.
