start your journey

For many years, I’ve been no stranger to the therapist’s couch. I first sought the counsel of a professional therapist to help confront unresolved childhood struggles and persistently strained relationships as an adult. Growing up gay in a small, deeply religious Southern town, I realized early that society had “otherized” me for simply being myself. While those around me steadfastly clung to these oppressive systems and non-sensical social structures, I felt compelled (but not always courageous) enough to reject them.

That sense of curiosity and rebellion inspired an early career in the performing arts and a second career as an entrepreneur, having Co-Founded a successful LA-based beauty brand. But despite those successes, I still yearned for a stronger identity and purpose. The process of self-interrogation led me to a Masters Degree program in Clinical Psychology at Antioch University, where I started to develop a deeper sense of self, alongside a heightened empathy for the world at large, and later receiving a certificate in Psychedelic Assisted Therapy from the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS), and The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS).

What does Kap treat?

Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) takes a holistic approach, addressing symptoms, negative thought patterns, lifestyle factors, trauma, coping skills, and brain chemistry for effective healing. Combining ketamine and therapy shows evidence of longer-lasting improvements in depression severity. KAP accelerates the therapeutic process, leading to transformative results in weeks rather than years. Experience emotional growth and enhanced well-being through the introspective nature of KAP. 

Going beyond symptom management. It allows you to delve into the root causes of your challenges, promoting healing. By opening the door to psychedelic exploration, ketamine enables objective reflection on past events, experiences, and traumas. Combined with talk therapy, this process facilitates processing, understanding, and emotional release.

In my work I discovered I felt most connected to the emotional and mental aspect of art—how does music, and other art forms, make us feel and heal? Psychotherapy allows me to blend creativity and an innate interest in the healing of others.

My approach to therapy is person-centered and strengths-based, meaning that I believe in empowering my clients to utilize their unique strengths and skills to overcome challenges and achieve their goals. I also believe that everyone has the capacity for growth and change, regardless of their past experiences. Using psychodynamic, relational, and dialectical behavioral approaches, I work with clients seeking to enrich their lives with a higher sense of satisfaction.
