Clients who I have connected with the deepest are anywhere from 19-45 years in age, and are interested in working with psychedelics as a path towards deeper self-growth and personal development. People interested in experiencing Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy as well. If you have already done some amount of self-work, either through therapy, meditation, or recovery programs, then we will be a great match. I specialize in working with men, but I enjoy working with women as well.
Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a transformative, systems-based approach to working with conflicted, wounded, or misunderstood parts of ourselves. The core of IFS is centered around helping clients access the loving, undamaged, and empowered core of their deep Self, which exists within everyone regardless of life experiences. I am currently participating in the Level 1 IFS training.
I have a masters degree in depth psychology & counseling from Pacifica Graduate Institute - the leading institution for depth psychology. It is an honor to find myself rooted in the lineage of Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell, James Hillman, Michael Meade, Robert Bly, Marion Woodman, and many more. Instead of simply changing unwanted behaviors, depth psychology helps us address the root cause.
All life is relationship. I've learned this fact in both my graduate psychotherapy training, and through spending time with indigenous cultures around the world. This means that each 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, and learning about who you really are.
Psychedelic medicines can often open us to regions without our psyche which we had previously not faced. This can either feel like a great weight has been lifted, or some new, troubling issue has been called to our attention. 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.
My approach to working with men draws from my training in Jungian and depth psychology. 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.
