My Ideal Client

My ideal clients are psychedelic-curious adults with chronic health issues seeking personal transformation. I specialize in providing compassionate and inclusive therapy, helping clients navigate overwhelming information, fears, and expectations about psychedelics. Together, we work towards clarity, comfort, and confidence, integrating spirituality and transpersonal approaches for meaningful growth.

My Background and Approach

With eight years of experience conducting research with psychedelics and cannabis, including co-founding Yale Psychedelic Science Group, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to my practice. As a spiritual and transpersonal therapist, I integrate intention and purpose into my work, helping clients connect with their authentic selves and navigate the complexities of psychedelic experiences with care. My background in statistics and harm reduction, along with a passion for social justice, drives my commitment to creating a radically caring and equitable post-capitalist future through my practice. I also have experience in community outreach, making science approachable and empowering clients to be supportive, patient, and kind in their journey of personal transformation.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I strive to integrate anti-capitalist values into my practice. I believe that capitalism perpetuates systemic inequalities and social injustices that impact mental health. I work with clients to explore the impact of capitalism on their well-being, and I aim to empower them to challenge oppressive systems and explore alternative ways of relating to themselves, others, and the world. My therapeutic approach incorporates social justice principles and emphasizes the importance of creating a more just and equitable society for all. I am committed to a holistic approach that encompasses mind, body, and spirit. My values include promoting mental health awareness, supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion, and advocating for social justice. My educational background in psychology and counseling, combined with my personal experiences, have fueled my passion for helping clients explore their inner selves, heal, and grow.

  • Mindfulness-based External link

    As an expert in mindfulness therapy, I am trained in techniques that promote present moment awareness, non-judgment, and self-compassion.
