II My Approach & Values
Throughout the course of my work with therapy and psychedelics over the last decade, I have come to believe that relationship is the most critical element of healing processes. I believe that true, authentic relationship with self and others is vital to living fulfilling, joyous, and balanced lives.
My counseling approach is rooted in developing a secure relational container with you to get to know you, to form a connection, and to better understand your context in life. From there, we can outline what your goals are and work towards them as a team.
In consultation and in integration work, I provide education about the mechanisms of psychedelic therapy, the nervous system, our social/cultural environment, harm reduction and trauma.
I offer somatic and harm-reduction informed tools when appropriate at various points of our work to understand and work through symptoms. I recognize the effects of systemic oppression and transgenerational trauma. Your experience exists within the context of your community, your history, and the society you live in.
I value client autonomy – that is to say that I wish to support you in determining what you need in any given moment, and trusting in your inner-knowing.
I value a collaborative process between practitioner and client. I don’t have all the answers – I am here to support you in your journey to find the answers that align with your truth.
Finally, I value a grounded approach to psychedelic integration which incorporates physical, mental, relational, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
“When the other person is hurting, confused, troubled, anxious, alienated, terrified; or when he or she is doubtful of self-worth, uncertain as to identity, then understanding is called for. The gentle and sensitive companionship of an empathic stance… provides illumination and healing. In such situations deep understanding is, I believe, the most precious gift one can give to another.”
