Counseling and Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy
In my late 20s, I faced an existential crisis. The pain and shame of knowing I was meant for more—more happiness, meaning, and purpose—without knowing how to get there was overwhelming. At times, terrifying. With the help of others, I discovered my unique path to an authentic, self-led life. My mission as a therapist is to return that gift. I believe we all have an innate ability to heal from past wounds, rewrite our inner story, and reunite with a sense of self that feels whole, connected, and fulfilled. If reading this stirs something in you, the work is already beginning.
I love working with people of all genders and identities. My approach as a therapist is person-centered, which places you as the expert of your life experience. I specialize in working with adults struggling with life transitions, depression, anxiety, addiction, relationship issues, psychedelic integration, and spiritual/existential concerns. I'm also a Certified Addiction Specialist experienced in treating co-occurring substance use and mental health issues. First and foremost, I am here to support you in finding your way to greater self-awareness, empowerment, and clarity. With these enhanced, life can truly blossom.
For those seeking a deep exploration of Self, I offer Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) with options for both oral and intravenous treatments. I’ve been a KAP therapist since 2021 and have seen it catalyze transformations for many people where other treatments have failed. I've been exploring the healing potential of psychedelic medicines for over 25 years. Additionally, I serve as the KAP Training Course Director for the Psychedelic Research and Training Institute and am deeply passionate about ethics, harm reduction, and sacredness in psychedelic healing.
I have been trained by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies in MDMA therapy for PTSD. I am also a longtime meditation and yoga practitioner and, on request, can apply mind-body techniques in our work together to foster deeper self-awareness and psychospiritual growth. I’m happy to consult with you to see if KAP may be helpful in your healing journey.
