Psychedelic Integration Therapy
I offer psychedelic integration therapy for folks who have chosen independently to use psychedelic medicines and want to make the most of their healing and transformational experiences with these substances.
What is psychedelic integration therapy?
Psychedelic integration therapy involves processing a psychedelic experience in a therapeutic context after the fact. It is distinct from a guided psychedelic experience in which the facilitator is present while the client is under the influence of the substance. At this time, I do not offer guided psychedelic experiences. (Please see the notice at the bottom of this page for further clarification.)
We're on the verge of a breakthrough.
If you’re reading this, you're probably already aware of the healing potential of psychedelics like MDMA, psilocybin, and LSD. This potential is being actively investigated in FDA-approved studies by organizations like the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), with exciting results. Research shows promising outcomes for issues like PTSD, end-of-life anxiety, depression, addiction, and more. The medicinal properties of psychedelics seem on track to become mainstream knowledge in the not-too-distant future.
Meanwhile, here you are, trying to change your life.
I'm passionate about providing therapeutic support before and after a psychedelic experience for folks who choose to make use of these medicines.
Psychedelics are potent and deserve our respect.
The more powerful a medicine is, the more careful we need to be with it. Not only can "bad trips" be scary in the moment, they sometimes have negative ripple effects in our lives (like disorientation, confusion, and anxiety) beyond the several hours that the drug's effects are most strongly felt.
And even with profound, ecstatic journeys where we find ourselves gazing into the face of the Goddess, it's not always easy to fully return to our everyday lives while trying to carry back all the wisdom and healing we've received.
That's why psychedelic integration therapy can be such an important part of your healing experience if you choose to use these medicines.
Psychedelic integration therapy can be a great fit for folks who are:
Trying to make sense of what they saw, felt, thought or remembered during a recent psychedelic journey;
Wishing to fully integrate insights from their experience into their daily lives;
Struggling to process difficult or upsetting material that came up during a trip;
Feeling radically different after their experience and wanting help re-entering their life without losing the transformation;
Seeking help making major life changes based on their trip in a thoughtful, healthy way;
Interested in accessing spiritual connection and wisdom without relying solely on psychedelics.

*PLEASE NOTE: Psychedelic integration therapy involves the therapeutic processing of psychedelic experiences after the fact, rather than during a session.
At this time, I do not offer guided psychedelic experiences. Given the recent decriminalization of psychedelic substances in the city of Oakland, I am in the process of compiling a list of resources and providers for prospective clients. Feel free to check my blog periodically for updates.
If you are interested in a guided psychedelic experience to address mental health issues, you may wish to visit the MAPS website for a list of potential providers or to see whether you might qualify to participate in a current trial.
