I am a somatically oriented and transpersonally trained spirituality and life coach, with a collaborative, affirming, approach to my work in supporting the transformational process.  I provide a container for experientials and conversations that help facilitate movement towards the intentions you create in your sessions with me, whether to help alleviate some difficulty, or to help you create what you want in life.  I specifically work with adults and young adults in major life transitions and explorations in personal callings.

I have over 15 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.  My primary specialities include Gestalt, Trauma/PTSD, Addictions, Sexuality, Dreamwork, Spiritual Emergencies, Transformational Alchemy, Healthy Systems, and Personal/Spiritual Development. 

Practitioner's Statement

My calling as a practitioner is to support my clients living into their highest and deepest expressions of their life's own calling. This work is complex and takes on many forms, from guided meditation sessions, individual coaching, classes and group exercises, and community support.  Professionally, I identify as a Spirituality and Life Coach.  Although I have developed skill sets, education and experience in psychotherapy, I do not identify as a therapist or counselor.

I have been a healing practitioner for 15 years, and during this time, I have been a political activist, community organizer, corporate accountability activist, spiritual center director, small business owner, and most recently, a father.  I believe my uncommon life path and it's challenges have given me a holistic perspective that helps my clients navigate important life transitions, big or difficult experiences, and encounters with the mystery and depth of life.

As the Executive Director of Medicinal Mindfulness, a psychedelic and cannabis harm prevention program, I also specialize in working with users of psychoactive substances and the questions and concerns they may have.  I assess safety, help integration, and hold a strong, objective, open and affirming working space without judgment.

Who I tend to work with

My clients are generally in a transformational process or ready to begin one.  My clients may have had difficult psychological experiences or life traumas, but they’re generally resilient enough to do the deep transformational work my guidance elicits.  I do not work with people who have severe mental health diagnoses.  Severe diagnoses include Personality Disorders and Psychosis.  I often work with people going through a difficult life transition or situation, or are concerned about having or have been diagnosed with, ADD/ADHD, PTSD, concerns regarding substance use, Bi-Polar Disorder, or related issues.  I regularly refer my ongoing clients to other healing practitioners, such as herbalists, acupuncturists, and nutritionists, as well as altered states healing modalities such as breatwork, to deepen and quicken the transformational process. 

Besides my overall practice of working with clients in transition or life calling exploration, I also specialize in business coaching and supporting  people becoming successful private practitioners and small business owners. 

I also work with cannabis and psychedelic medicine users through my program Medicinal Mindfulness.  As a harm reduction program, I strive to educate my clients in safer and more intentional use of these medicines to both reduce the potential harm and increase the well documented benefits.
