Provider Description

I offer a holistic approach to psychotherapy that honors the body, mind, spirit, and natural world. Drawing on my activist roots and more than a decade of clinical experience, I bring a deep sensitivity to issues of complex trauma, grief and loss, social justice, spiritual emergence, and LGBTQ+ mental health. Specializations include:

•MINDFUL CANNABIS AND PSYCHEDELIC INTEGRATION: I offer specialized harm reduction services for developing a mindful relationship with cannabis and other psychedelics. I teach safe and responsible use practices, guide psychedelic cannabis experiences, and help my clients integrate non-ordinary states of consciousness to promote holistic well-being.

•CANNABIS-ASSISTED SOMATIC PSYCHOTHERAPY (CASP) refers to the mindful use of cannabis in combination with psychotherapeutic methods that emphasize the body-mind connection as a basis for trauma resolution and psycho-spiritual development. CASP harnesses the psychoactive properties of cannabis—including its abilities to enhance sensory perception, lower psychological defenses, and regulate the autonomic nervous system—to amplify the body-mind connection and facilitate therapeutic processing.

In-person sessions are available at my office in NW Portland. I also offer teletherapy for clients located anywhere in Oregon or California. Outdoor ecotherapy sessions may be available on nature trails in Portland's west-side. Please visit my website to learn more, and connect with me to schedule a free consultation.
