Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LSW, PCC
Psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy can be a powerful tool for promoting openness and connections, especiallyfor those feeling stuck or adrift.The medicine can offer a liminal space forself-exploration, emergence, and discovery. The experiences had there can have profound and lasting impacts.
My aim as the therapist in the psychedelic space is to create a safe and supportive environmentin which your unique experience with the medicinecanunfold. I work with you throughout each step of the process and see no part as being more important than another. Before working with the medicine, our goal is to establish an attuned relationship with one anotherand to clarify the intentions for journeying. After each medicine session, we will consider the experience and look for ways to integrate what’s emerged into the rest of your life.
A contemplative and compassionate relationship with the self is a healthy fundamental instinct, but this instinct can be hampered by adverse and traumatic experiences. What’s more, when we struggle to be OK with ourselves, we often struggle relating to others. I offer support healing emotional wounds and constructing deeper and lasting connections with the self and others.
I work with adult individuals and children who are 10 years or older, I also offer family and couples therapy. I aim to be welcoming and mindful of the myriad social injustices impacting so many of us. In addition to what’s often called talk therapy, I work with experiential modalities that engage in creative, mindful, and somatic ways to help us access inherent wisdom that can lie beyond ordinary talking. I hope to help you build robust skills that ease the challenges that come with fostering acceptance and change.
I began my studies and career in science and then for almost a decade, I offered support as a certified professional life coach before attending Bryn Mawr College’s School of Social Work and Social Research to broaden my ability to support people’s resilience and potential. I am additionally trained in family systems work and provide ketamine-assisted psychotherapy.
