I am a graduate of the California Institute of Integral Studies doctorate program in Clinical Psychology. My background is in the application of existential philosophy to psychoanalytic therapy. My primary research has been on MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for post-traumatic stress disorder. Other papers I have written focus on death, spirituality, happiness, tragedy, and alternative community-based approaches to the treatment of extreme states (aka psychosis).
