Educator, Author, and Leader in Psychedelic Wellness

Psychedelics to:

Embark on a journey of self-discovery.

Empower radical positive change.

Embrace the interconnectedness of life.

With depression, anxiety, and loneliness on the rise, people are looking for an alternative to traditional mental health therapies and psychedelic medicine is emerging as one possible solution.

I'm not here to convince you to take psychedelics- not everyone should. But I do believe that psychedelics are for everyone. For some, this does mean they will experience a psychedelic journey. For others, psychedelics will positively impact someone they love. In either case, it is important to get beyond the taboo and understand the transformative power of psychedelics.

As an educator and leader in psychedelic wellness, my work is dedicated to empowering individuals to take control of their mental health and personal growth.

In my talks you will discover how these ancient practices, combined with modern insights, can open doors to profound healing and understanding. My sessions are not just presentations; they are invitations to change your perspective, to find strength in vulnerability, and to connect deeply with your true self.

With a background in psychology, neuroscience, and personal exploration, I offer a unique blend of academic understanding and experiential wisdom. Join me as we navigate the intersection of psychedelics, spirituality, and science – a journey that promises enlightenment, empowerment, and perhaps a few unexpected revelations.
