About me

Compassionate and collaborative trauma-informed therapist.

I can help you with:

By blending holistic, innovative treatment approaches with compassionate & collaborative trauma-informed care I have been successful in supporting my clients through their transitions and transformations. 


My career began 17 years ago with a deep interest in exploring the synthesis between science and spirituality. It was evident that current treatments were not working for many people and I felt something  was missing. I studied and researched the intersection of secular Buddhism and psychology to understand how Eastern philosophical approaches could broaden current treatments. We have now seen mindfulness-based approaches and perspectives being incorporated into existing therapies, widening our perspective on why we suffer as humans and what we can do about it. 

My style is holistic, integrative, relational, and trauma-informed. This means that I:

1) Prioritize building a genuine and authentic relationship with you. We will work collaboratively together, side by side, as you heal and grow. 

2) Work to understand your unique story and assess what you are needing at different points in your healing journey. I will draw from multiple trainings and approaches to move you towards meeting your treatment goals. 

3) I am compassionate, warm, & grounded as I meet you where you are at and move forward at a thoughtful pace. 

As I understand the courage it takes to set out on this path, it has been essential for me to provide ethical, client-centered care. I appreciate the gift it is to be let into a person’s inner world and the deep reverence and respect I feel is reflected in how I show up for my clients


Owning our story can be hard, but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky, but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.

Degrees, Training, & Experience

My broad and extensive background includes psychotherapy, research, supervising, teaching, training, & consulting. I have worked in a variety of settings from hospitals, community clinics, to private care. 

I have been practicing as an individual therapist for 8 years and offering group therapy for 10 years. I studied Buddhist psychology and published research in mindfulness and addictions. Additionally, I conducted research on non-ordinary states of consciousness in meditation, with a specific focus on spiritual emergencies and related preparation and integration practices. 

As a psychedelic therapist I have facilitated over 1000 ketamine-assisted psychotherapy journeys after offering integration therapy for 8 years. I have trained and supervised over 50+ therapists across 10 clinics in the US & Canada. I have co-developed psychedelic therapy programs to meet the needs of different populations. I also currently facilitate psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy via Health Canada’s Special Access Program. I have spoken in numerous articles, panels, and podcasts about my work in this field. 

In addition to my private practice work, I work with a multidisciplinary healthcare team to deliver innovative therapies. I am also a consultant and trainer for Compass Pathways’ Phase 3 psilocybin clinical trials. Previously, I worked as the Director of Psychotherapy at Field Trip Health, a clinic delivering psychedelic-assisted therapy across the US, Canada, and Europe.
