My Approach to Helping

I feel particularly drawn to process-oriented and existential therapies. I encourage patience and curiosity as we explore your relationships to yourself, other people, and your environment. Your immediate lived experience, as well as my own, informs my understanding of therapy and how we can collaborate to move towards wholeness. By focusing on your mind, body, and spirit I can avoid confining labels and reducing you to symptoms. My training and experience have helped me develop an appreciation for mindfulness and building awareness. Clients who are present are more aware of what they need in order to grow and heal.

My Values as a Therapist

I earned my PhD in clinical psychology studying how person-centered, whole body healing can happen. I have written and spoken about psychedelic science for over a decade, co-founded the Yale Psychedelic Science Group, and documented traditional healing and religious practices in Mexico. I learned how to support and care for people who were in the midst of challenging experiences. These experiences (often inaccurately referred to as “bad trips”) could change into valuable learning opportunities, and even potentially offer healing and growth.
