Bio :
I am a recovery coach and consultant that has been working with iboga and ibogaine in both clinical and ceremonial contexts in Canada, Mexico, and Costa Rica since 2009. I have been part of hundreds of detox treatments with people going through various treatment protocols, and have also coached people through long-term micro-dosing protocols for everything from depression and anxiety to neurodegenerative disorders.

I used to serve as the Director of the Global Ibogaine Therapy Alliance (GITA), during which time I led the development of the Clinical Guidelines for Ibogaine-Assisted Detoxification, a risk management guide that remains a standard in the field. I organized three international conferences on ibogaine therapy in Vancouver, Canada (2012); Durban, South Africa (2014); and Tepoztlán, Mexico (2016). I have collaborated with researchers in the fields of psychology and biochemistry, published peer reviewed work and other articles about ibogaine therapy, and have presented at numerous conferences internationally.

In 2014, I was initiated into a Dissoumba/Fang tradition of Bwiti in Gabon, which has had a major influence on my life. My experience there later inspired research during my psychology studies at Sofia University into the varieties of experiences that people have taking ibogaine in various contexts and how this is integrated physically and emotionally. Throughout all of this I’ve been inspired by ibogaine’s potential to shift worldviews and the stories that we tell about ourselves in powerful ways. Ibogaine is not always an easy journey, and I’ve been honored to be able to support people on this path.
