More About Somatics and Psychedelic Support Services
For sessions, I pull from several therapy modalities unless there is specific work, or a goal, that requires focus from one modality over the other. If psychedelic support is requested, we will work together to support your goals. I work will clients and other professionals around expanding our capacity for healing and holding space from a non-diagnostics perspective and with relational tools.
About the Somatica® Method
This modality is founded in positive psychology, relational psychotherapy, feminism, sexual liberation and experiential awareness. We are aiming to build upon the strengths that already exist in one's life in order to increase pleasure orientation and decrease shame. We practice energetic, verbal or physical embodiment tools around, vulnerability, consent culture, and erotic freedom. We engage in exercises where we approach any challenge or 'stuck-ness' with gentle curiosity.
About Somatic® Experiencing (SE)
Nervous system regulation relates to every person and unfortunately all of us have experienced some level of dis-regulation, and or shame, around our sexuality & relationships whether that be chronic, cultural or acute situations. SE offers a wide structure for reprocessing this nervous system dis-regulation, which can also be called trauma. The SE modality of therapy allows the wisdom of our body to lead the unfolding of our self discovery and healing.
About Psychedelic Support Services
Psychedelic preparation and integration is a process of working intentionally with an an altered state of consciousness experience which I'll refer to sometimes as a 'journey'. I also offer in-person services as a 'sitter' for those who are exploring psychedelic experiences. When we take time to intentionally prepare & integrate an experience, we can soften the contrast between the psychedelic spaces and day to day life. Preparation supports our intentionality in exploring these healing tools. Integration supports the likelihood of expanded health and stability after an experience. Please reach out for inquires around journey packages as a healthcare provider or recipient. I am available to travel as well with travel expenses being an additional fee.
As psychedelics are becoming more and more available to the public, you may have curiosity to explore these natural medicines. This service is appropriate if you yourself are exploring altered states of consciousness, you have a friend or family member you would like to be able to support, or if you are a wellness professional or therapist who could use consultation support for your clients. I have over a 13 years of experience with psychedelia and am a first cohort graduate of the Vital facilitators training through Psychedelics Today. I do not condone any illegal activity and during preparation calls we will talk explicitly about any risks (legal, health or medically-wise) clients may be taking and how we can reduce any chances of harm. I do not sell or distribute substances to my clients or otherwise and advise any person to consult their informed medical provider for any possible health contraindications. My services are all founded in harm reduction and healing our innate capacity for love.

“I have little doubt that as individuals, families, communities, and even nations, we have the capacity to learn how to heal and prevent much of the damage done by trauma. In so doing, we will significantly increase our ability to achieve both our individual and collective dreams.” ― Peter A. Levine, Healing Trauma: A Pioneering Program for Restoring the Wisdom of Your Body
