Ideally, you have already taken a few steps down the path of self-growth, whether through prior therapy, meditation, psychedelics, nature-based work, and want to do deep work together from the start.
Radical change can require radical action. I have extensive training and hands-on experience helping my clients navigate and integrate transpersonal, altered states of consciousness. Emerging research is confirming that transpersonal experiences have immense potential to heal when facilitated in the right set and setting. I have studied, written, and taught extensively about psychedelic integration, and have hundreds of hours of offering this to a wide variety of clients from around the world.
IFS is a non-pathologizing form of therapy and embraces the many "parts" of us as natural facets of the psyche - aspects of ourselves which long to be known, understood, and healed. IFS is also a fantastic tool for psychedelic integration, as psychedelic experiences can often unlock or reveal unfamiliar, challenging, or empowering parts of us.

Founded by Carl Jung, depth psychology understands that our individual psyches are informed by collective, archetypal elements. Our problems, issues, and fears are often rooted in the unconscious, or what Jung called our shadow. Instead of simply changing unwanted behaviors, depth psychology helps us address the root cause. Depth psychology can help you navigate the turbulent waters of life by framing your life and struggles in the context of the greater web of human experiences throughout time.
Psychedelic medicines can open us to areas of our psyche which we had previously not faced- often called our "shadow." Based on years of academic research, traditional training, and personal experience, I specialize in clients working with psychedelics to discovery deeper parts of themselves and grow into more complete, healed human beings. However, I do not currently offer psychedelic-assisted therapy in the US at this time. Please do not contact me about obtaining psychedelic medicines.
My approach to working with men draws from my training in Jungian and depth psychology, and what is now called the "mythopoetic" men's movement. I integrate masculine archetypes and mythology to help you chart your inner landscape. I also incorporate Internal Family Systems to help uncover and integrate the wounded or reactive “parts” of you that may be the source of your problems. This work extends to all sexual orientations and male-identified people.
There’s a good chance that you’ve found your way here because something in your life feels off. Maybe you feel a deep lack of purpose and meaning, or that you haven’t been able to find your true calling yet. Perhaps you’re struggling with communicating and connecting with your partner. Or, you don’t have a partner at all, and want to figure out who you need to become to find the right one.
Each unique person requires their own unique therapy. I won’t try to slot you into a theory or category, or try and “fix” you. Instead, I work through building our relationship, listening for the deeper meaning in what you have to say, and learning about who you really are. Using both depth psychology and Internal Family System, I work to heal the root of your problems, not just the surface issue.
Our sadness, issues, and fears are often rooted in the unconscious, or what Jung called our 'shadow'. Depth psychology can help you navigate the turbulent waters of life by framing your life and struggles in the context of the greater web of human experience. This is often done through working with dreams, archetypes, and transformative life experiences such as initiation and rites of passage.

Men have always gathered together, until recently. So many of us lose track of our deep Self in the hustle of everyday life. Men’s work helps to break this spell, and can provide a much-needed container where we can gather strength, and cultivate our vision. Drawing on the "mythopoetic" tradition, we will delve into the realm of myth, poetry, and the lived experiences of each man present as a gateway into the masculine psyche. Quarterly Cohort model. First cohort works with the book Iron John.
