About Psychedelic Support

Seek the wisdom that will untie your knot.

Seek the path that demands your whole being.

~ Rumi

Challenging Roads Lead to Beautiful Places

15, curious and naive about psychedelics, my first LSD experience took me to terrifying places. It also left me hungry to make meaning from my confusing journey. To explore the mind, consciousness, and who I truly was.

Education is Not the Filling of a Pail, but the Lighting of a Fire

Following my tenacious curiosity led me to study MDMA and earn a PhD in Neuropharmacology in 2009. With the acquired knowledge, my inquiry into molecules and mysteries led to investigations at UCSF, NIH, and MAPS.

The Only Source of Knowledge is Experience

More personal experiences with plant medicines and human teachers illuminated many truths, ancient wisdom to heal and grow. With the support of wise teachers, non normal states of consciousness hold the potential for radically positive transformation.

Joining Forces

While studying in Austin, I met Shawn Grona, a software engineer. Over the years our love evolved, and we got married. With plant teachers as our allies, we grew stronger and received a divine call to combine our skills to make a positive difference in the individual and collective experience.

A Call to Share, With the World!

Psychedelic Support is the answer to that call. Born in March of 2018 as a platform to accelerate personal and global transformation by advancing responsible psychedelic assisted therapy, our mission in disguise as a business quickly became the leading directory of providers and the benchmark for accredited online education.

Together with others in harmonious intention, we founded Project New Day, a non-profit that takes action to nurture and grow the responsible and legal use of psychedelic medicines to help people overcome addiction. The circle of care comes complete with Psychedelic Support giving back to Project New Day and paying the many blessings forward.
