Practitioner’s Statement. . .

I have been a healing practitioner for almost 20 years, and during this time, I have been a political activist, community organizer, corporate accountability activist, spiritual center director, small business owner, a husband, and father of two beautiful children. My goal as a practitioner is to support us all living into a world we’d want children to thrive in. I believe my uncommon life path and its challenges have given me an holistic perspective that helps me support my clients navigating important life transitions, big or difficult experiences, and encounters with the mystery and depth of life.

Daniel McQueen,  MA

Psychedelic Therapist & Educator

My calling as a Psychedelic Therapist is to support my clients as they step into their highest and deepest expressions of Self. This requires transforming our past into fuel for our future potential, and the hard task of living into that potential. I support my clients by being a bridge between how their life has been to how they want it to be.

This work is complex and takes on many forms, from facilitating individual Psychedelic Therapy experiences, guided meditation sessions, individual coaching, classes, and community support. Although I am trained as a clinical psychotherapist, with a Masters degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology from Naropa University, I identify professionally as a Psychedelic Therapist, and do not provide psychotherapy services. I’ve worked professionally with cannabis as a psychedelic since legalization in 2014, and I am continually amazed (and even still regularly surprised) by its potential as both a therapeutic tool for healing, as well as a profound tool for psychedelic exploration. I specifically work with new journeyers, the psychedelic curious, as well as advanced psychedelic journeywork practitioners.

I have over 19 years of transformational and healing arts experience, having studied multiple spiritual and psychological traditions, including advanced training in energy healing, transformational alchemy, and shamanic practices. I am also trained in MDMA-Assisted Psychotherapy. I specialize in working with people who use psychedelic substances and cannabis, and in safely supporting them on this path through answering questions, engaging concerns, and navigating big life transitions. I assess safety, help integration, and hold a strong, objective, open and affirming working space with acceptance and compassion.
