Promising and exciting research is showing that psychedelics effectively treat chronic depression, PTSD, existential anxiety, end of life issues, and chronic pain, when these conditions do not respond to conventional treatments and medications. Research participants say that their experiences on psychedelic journeys are the most profound and transformative of their lives.
This field has become a new passion for me. I am certified to provide psychedelic-assisted therapy by the California Institute of Integral Studies. I’ve also completed 100 hours of training in MDMA-Assisted Therapy, with MAPS (the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies) and have trained in ketamine-assisted therapy with Polaris Institute, Temenos Institute, and Fluence.
Currently, only ketamine and cannabis are legal to use. I have been working with two ketamine clinics, providing preparation, guiding, and integration therapy. I also have experience in the use of psychedelic cannabis.
I provide consultation to both psychotherapists and clients interested in learning how psychedelics might be useful therapeutically, as well as considerations for assessing whether this treatment might be the best choice.
I also do preparation and integration work with clients who are working with other guides, using art therapy, EMDR, mindfulness practices, and nature-based therapy to integrate the gains from journey work into lifelong habits.
This field is advancing daily, and I am very excited to be on the forefront of this new healing frontier!
