Hi, I'm Andrea
My main passions are trauma work, healing, and the power of psychedelics to help us do both.
I'm currently training in Compassionate Inquiry, Gabor Mate's therapeutic approach to working with trauma, and will be a Certified Psychedelic Somatic Interactional Therapist (PSIT) by the end of 2021. I've also made it a priority to include shamanic practices in my studies rather than only Westernized approaches to working with plant medicines. I'm grateful that living in Colombia for over two years has granted me abundant access to these sorts of traditions.
I first got into healing work after losing my mom to cancer in 2018 and recognizing that her illness was caused by harboring childhood trauma that she had never processed and had manifested into a terminal disease. I saw myself following the same sorts of patterns and knew I had to make a drastic change.
I've since been able to overcome severe anxiety and depression which I never thought would be possible. I still have down days but I feel confident in the tools I have to navigate those low moments. Now my goal is to empower others on their personal healing journeys, whether that involves the use of psychedelics or not.
