How I work with Clients
Are you looking for a psychotherapist who has a professional understanding of psychedelics and their use? We provide individual treatment tailored to your needs. This can include support in integrating psychedelic experiences, but may also extend to other areas of a person’s life. We will also help individuals explore and clarify their desire and motivation to continue to use psychedelics, or reduce their use.
Group psychotherapy sessions utilize interpersonal connections with other group members who have a relationship to psychedelics. Some group members have had their own experiences, while others are learning about whether psychedelics will play a role in their lives. Group discussions focus on integrating insights, lessons, and even challenging experiences with psychedelics into one's broader life.
EVALUATION AND CONSULTATION
Have you wondered whether they may be risks associated with using psychedelics? We can conduct comprehensive evaluations, to assess for potential risk factors and assessment of individuals who are having difficult experiences related to psychedelic use.
Our approach provides a collaborative, safe, supportive space for you to explore whether moderate, less harmful substance use, or abstinence is best suited for you. Simultaneously, we address mental health issues that may be impacting your daily life and provide individualized services for a range of issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, and chronic pain.
*DISCLAIMER: The Psychedelic Education and Continuing Care Program does not provide psychoactive or illicit substances. We do not conduct or promote psychedelic psychotherapy outside of approved clinical trials and we do not provide referrals to “underground” (illegal) psychedelic services.
