A Practice Of

Freedom

Integrative & Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy

My Approach

Fear, anger, grief, and trauma can disconnect us from ourselves and our lives and cause limiting beliefs and destructive patterns. I offer a practice and a space to connect you with your core aliveness and your inner knowing. From this connection, vitality and inner harmony emerge, along with a newfound trust in your own truth. The confidence and presence to meet life as it is, address whatever is arising, and experience more intimacy in your relationships, naturally arise within you.

This Work Invites You
This work invites you

to fully live your life and find a home in your own body. This distinctly collaborative process calls us to authentically show up so we can engage in a deeply explorative and highly rewarding journey together. It is actually your body’s desire and ability to heal that reveals what needs your attention. What I bring is an unwavering trust that you have this capacity, and that you contain this inner knowing.

This Work Reconnects You
This work reconnects you

with your own brilliance and wisdom. How? By together meeting anything that gets in your way of accessing it, and by deploying awareness, cultivating a curious and compassionate stance, and simply by welcoming it. We’ll study your relational patterns and current lifestyle, refining your communication skills, identifying and strengthening resources, and integrating the different aspects of yourself.

This Work is a Movement
This work is a movement

into alignment with your whole self now, shifting from perpetuating outdated limited narratives or preoccupying planning/waiting for a future version. What emerges is a felt-sense of connection and the ability to respond more skillfully and creatively to whatever challenges arise.

This Work Fosters Harmony
This work fosters harmony

between the different, and sometimes disowned, parts of the constellation that is you. Including your desire, fear, anger, grief, spontaneity, and innocence. We practice attuning to and relating with your direct experience, as it is, rather than reacting to interpretations about it. We cultivate an alliance with all parts of you and your inner knowing. It’s a training on how to know and be your true self.

This Work Reveals Wholeness
This work reveals wholeness

through radical inclusion of the different aspects that make up your life. Interpersonal relationships (such as with intimate partners, friends, family, and colleagues), lifestyle aspects (such as sleep, exercise, diet, drugs, work, play, and contemplative practices), and the context of one’s life (such as race/ethnicity, cultural perspectives, transgenerational trauma, and sociopolitical factors), all come together and are held by a unified point of view.

I am inquiring about:

Ketamine-
Assisted
Psychotherapy
(KAP)

Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) is a leading edge therapeutic process that can deepen the psychotherapeutic experience, making it easier for clients to access parts of themselves that may be more protected. Ketamine is currently the only legally accessible psychedelic medicine and has a fifty-year history of safe use worldwide as an anesthetic agent in medical procedures. Used in sub-anesthetic doses, ketamine has been shown to be effective for many mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety and suicidality.

Combining Internal Family Systems (IFS) with KAP can accelerate a healing process, assisting your innate healing capacity by unburdening the parts of you that hold entrenched limiting beliefs and/or maintain painful habits. I offer concierge ketamine-assisted IFS therapy (KA-IFS) programs for people to deepen awareness of maladaptive misbeliefs and patterns, and interrupt and transform them. My KA-IFS programs are 4-8 weeks and include preparatory sessions, weekly ketamine-assisted sessions, weekly integration sessions, and daily integration practices. Clients have said that through this work they learn to better befriend themselves, get aligned with their higher Self, and experience the free, connected wholeness of who they are.

Internal
Family
Systems
(IFS)

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a clear, non-pathologizing and empowering modality that I utilize to help you detect and then deepen your relationship with the various parts of your experience (like an inner-critic, shutdown or worrier part). I’m a longtime certified IFS therapist and a leading psychedelic-assisted IFS therapist.

The limiting patterns and associated negative beliefs that hold you back, likely learned earlier in life and reinforced over years, were adaptive for a time. IFS therapy connects you with your inner healing intelligence that then updates outdated ways of being and brings forth balance and aliveness. It’s a training on how to know and be your true self. Simply put, this work establishes you, not your fears or limiting beliefs, as the leader of your precious life.

Psychedelic
Integration

Integration means to make whole or to bring into wholeness. Psychedelic integration is an ongoing process of learning from psychedelic medicine-assisted sessions to catalyze meaningful change and move from rigidity and chaos into harmony.

After a psychedelic experience, it’s not uncommon to feel flooded with information, overwhelmed by emotion, and have a lack of clarity around what to do next. Durable healing and sustainable growth are the results of harvesting insights and experiences and practicing new, self-loving lifestyle choices. Action and practice are required.

Support in psychedelic integration ideally begins with preparation before the medicine experience, such as clarifying your intentions and developing tools for your journey. After the journey, integration is supported through experienced coaching that guides a process of inquiry, empowering you to incorporate your increased awareness into actionable positive growth.

I am a therapist and supervisor on the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) sponsored FDA Phase III clinical trial of MDMA-assisted therapy for PTSD. I’m also a clinical trainer of ketamine-assisted psychotherapy and therapeutic psilocybin.
