About me

I have been a community leader and educator in Southern California around the therapeutic, spiritual, and shamanic uses of psychedelics. My journey has taken me from a previous carrier in environmental science to a passion for the reintroduction of psychedelics and entheogens back in to our Western society. 

Over the past few years, I have founded several organizations to create space for community dialogue and support (see below).

Recently, I finished a masters degree in Social Work and training in somatic psychotherapy (Hakomi). In early 2019, several colleagues and myself co-founded the California Center for Psychedelic Therapy (CCPT). We are currently taking clients interested in treating treatment-resistant depression with Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP), as well as, psychedelic integration. And as one of the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) sponsored clinical trial sites, we are poised to be some of the first clinicians to offer legal MDMA-assisted psychotherapy to the public. Stay tuned!

I am currently taking clients locally at our center in Los Angeles or remotely via video conferencing. 

Offerings include:

  • Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy
  • Psychedelic Preparation and Integration 
  • Somatic Psychotherapy
  • Mindfulness Training
  • Trauma Therapy
  • Transpersonal Psychotherapy

Set up a session with me through the CCPT website

Feel free to get to know me through the numerous podcasts and presentations I have given. Or come to a talk or integration circle in Southern California through the Aware Project or InnerSpace Integration to meet the community!
