Welcome! I weave curiosity and trust into the process of exploring non-ordinary state consciousness, and invite you to do the same. I have seen profound shifts in mood, relationships and outlook on life for people who have experienced psilocybin and other psychedelics. Connecting with a therapist who you feel safe with, someone who can support meaning-making before and after your psychedelic experience is a key component of a healthful outcome. For 20 years, I have been honored to work with adults from a variety of cultures, including LGBTQAI. I facilitate and support people as they move hrough feelings of expansion, spaciousness and increased spirituality, right along side their shame, guilt, fear, and regret.
My hypothesis is that when we mindfully come back into connection with ourselves, our capacity to navigate and live with emotional discomfort increases, and we simply feel better more of the time. A foundation of CBT and DBT, balanced with Harm Reduction is the base of my humorous and humble approach. I condone consistent contact with nature, in the form of awe walks and forest baths, and conduct hike-o-therapy sessions in Portland. I would be honored to help you find clarity while you prepare for, and integrate your journey with non-ordinary states of consciousness. I am licensed to facilitate dosing sessions in Oregon and will be conducting sessions in Portland and Ashland starting November 2023. ~Be well~
