Practitioner’s Statement

I am passionate about supporting people who are looking for growth, healing and transformation. I believe in the personal power that can be cultivated through working through important issues in a psychedelic state.

I have a backing as a psychotherapist and I have trained in the three countries I have called home, Canada, Ireland and the United States. I practice an integrative therapeutic approach, combining different therapeutic tools to fit the needs of the individual client. Working with a diverse range of clients I became keenly aware of the struggle to find self compassion that so many people battle with. Most of the people I found myself meeting had developed these patterns due to some form of trauma. I found my passions lied in helping clients gain understanding and compassion for themselves, helping them work on accepting their past and coping with their present.

Before working in the world of psychedelics I also worked in the judicial system providing therapeutic support for individuals with substance abuse issues. Through this work I witnessed first hand the impact that institutional trauma can inflict and the powerlessness that can be experienced. I also found it distressing to recognize the lack of understanding given to those battling addiction. Making sure that my clients felt heard and supported was and is of the utmost importance to me.

It is important to note that this work can be a deeply spiritual and/or mystical experience. For myself spirituality is rooted in love and connection, supported by my own journey work practice, yoga and having time in nature and with those I care about. Within these mindfulness-based psychedelic therapeutic journeys I support clients through the use of intention or prayer, ceremony, and being open to the transpersonal aspects of our existence.

I am most called to work with those who are:

  • Interested in building on their own self trust
  • Wanting to support their inner child
  • Looking for healing, change and growth
  • Are hoping to heal from their trauma in a safe space
  • Anyone who is struggling with anxiety, depression or addiction
  • Curious about the psychedelic experience and not wanting to explore it alone
