As an addiction psychiatrist for the past 15 years I have evolved to specialize in complex PTSD. It has been a heartbreaking journey at times. I am currently feeling hopeful and energized with the impending rescheduling of psychedelic therapy. I feel passionate about creating a space where we safely offer healing, create community and educate clinicians, policy makers as well as the public.
My mission is to address the mental health crisis by shifting the way we look at it, to see things from a broader angle inviting understanding and compassion. The vision is to be part of the changing face of mental health treatment.
The HOME-LA team seeks to educate and collaborate with leaders within our community to consider the benefits of psychedelic medicine, to increase empathy and allow for a greater sense of equality and harmony—-within ourselves, within families, within communities, within countries, between countries, and the Earth.
HOME-LA offers this integrative treatment approach through donations to underserved populations, 501C3 Pending.
