I employ a rather unique set of tools to help individuals transform their lives and their businesses. Here are a few of the most common questions I get asked.
What does "Choose 1, 2, or all 3..." really mean?
The vast majority of my coaching clients are entrepreneurs and business leaders seeking to consciously create more satisfaction in their life. The vast majority of those clients Pick 2...Entrepreneurship and Mental Health. Most of my coaching clients have zero interest in Psychedelics and that is 100% ok.
On the other hand, another group of clients often suffer from symptoms originating from trauma, depression, PTSD, OCD, etc. These clients also Pick 2...Mental Health and Psychedelics.
Because I spent the better part of two decades launching and growing tech and professional service firms, a few of my clients simply need help growing their businesses. They Pick 1...Entrepreneurship.
Every individual I work with wants and needs something different and every one of them gets to help choose the tools they would like to use.
Are you a psychedelic guide?
The short answer is no. I am a Transformational Guide. In my practice, psychedelics are simply one tool in the toolbox. I am far more interested in helping you get from where you're at today to where you want to go tomorrow. If you think psychedelics could become a part of that journey, then that's something we can discuss.
To more specifically address your question, "guide" seems to be the generally accepted term the industry uses for humans who help other humans intentionally and safely use psychedelics. So in that case, one might consider me a guide. If I had to choose two words that better embody my philosophy, sage and spotter would be more appropriate. A guide encourages a traveler to follow them into an experience or terrain they're already familiar with. A spotter stands firmly on the ground, behind the traveler, holding the safety rope and offering enough slack to allow for infinite choice. A spotter may occasionally offer a traveler a potential hand- or foot-hold but the decision rests with the one climbing the mountain.
It is worth noting that even after 30+ journeys with ayahuasca, the single most profound spiritual experience I've ever had came during a 10-day silent meditation retreat with absolutely no substances involved. There are so many paths one can take to achieve their desired goal. I like to think of myself as a sort of spiritual general contractor.
Do you work with individuals or groups?
What psychedelics do you recommend?
There is no right or easy answer to this question. I have personal experience sitting with psilocybin, LSD, MDMA, ayahuasca, huachuma (san pedro), and ketamine. I can often assist clients in finding reputable facilitators to sit with those substances as well as Ibogaine.
Where do you offer your services?
In locations (both in the US and abroad) that support the decriminalization of psychedelics and those honoring the Religious Freedom and Restoration Act.
From launch to exit, I have mentored multiple founders to 8-figure exits and helped companies achieve triple-digit growth through alignment, strategy, and process.
Taking care of your mental health comes in many flavors. I use a blend of coaching, somatic psychotherapy, and mindfulness to meet you exactly where you're at.
I've studied for over a decade with masters and medicine carriers to help you use these powerful substances in a safe and effective way.
