Almost two decades of professional experience has shown me suffering has its roots in disconnection from self, others, and/or the natural world; often caused by trauma. This disconnection can show up as: difficulty knowing what you want; inability to name and express feelings; relationship discord with partners, friends, or coworkers; feeling lost and uninspired; lack of creativity and flexibility; existential crises; depression; or anxiety. By reconnecting and becoming more embodied, you will find more depth in your relationships, clarity in your thinking, and more skills and confidence to manage the inevitable struggles of life.
I utilize an interpersonal and somatic approach tailored to your needs, striving to build the kind of relationship that supports authenticity, risk taking, and growth. I have specialized training and experience with Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy and offer this treatment at Winding Path in collaboration with other highly trained physicians and clinicians. I enjoy working with individuals interested in becoming more self-aware, healing deep wounds, and building capacity for deeper relationships. Beyond my role at Winding Path, I am a researcher and therapist at University of Wisconsin-Madison on several FDA approved clinical trials studying the potential benefits of psychedelic assisted psychotherapy for treatment of trauma and addiction. I have been trained to work with Ketamine, Psilocybin, MDMA, and 5-meo-DMT.
In addition to my clinical practice, I hold expertise in Gestalt Psychotherapy, with extensive training received at the Gestalt Institute of Cleveland, where I also serve as a faculty member. I offer training in Gestalt Therapy and am also trained and experienced as a group facilitator for both therapy and training groups.
