Thanks for your interest in consulting with me and I hope that I can be of service to you. Please familiarize yourself with the information below prior to making a consultation request.
Psychedelics can provide powerful spiritual and healing experiences when used appropriately. However, when combined with certain medications or used inappropriately, poor outcomes involving physical or psychological damage is possible. My consultation services are designed to minimize risks and maximize benefits associated with psychedelic use for a variety of different needs. For further rationale of why this service may be of benefit please see the ‘Why Consultation?” page.
Due to the illicit nature of many psychedelic drugs in many world jurisdictions as as well as the desire to preserve lawful integrity of this service, I do not recommend that you use illicit psychedelic drugs, tell you where or how to find or procure illicit psychedelics, or provide consultation for psychedelic use when intended to be used in jurisdictions where they are not legal. Any requests of this nature will be denied.
What can consultation provide?
A discussion and risk evaluation of current medications, health status, and potential interactions with psychedelic drugs
An individualized strategy to decrease risks associated with psychedelic drug use
Counseling for safe use of selected psychedelic drugs including set, setting, dosing, and tips for optimal experience
A plan to safely taper current psychotropic medication*
What does consultation not provide?
A recommendation or endorsement to use psychedelic drugs
A medical clearance to use psychedelic drugs
Prescribing of medication to taper off of current medications
Guarantee of safety or positive outcome in the circumstance you choose to use psychedelic drugs
Referral to a place where you can obtain psychedelic drugs illicitly**
*Taper of medication should not be attempted without oversight from your prescribing medical provider
**Referral may be possible if hoping to find information on where to enroll in a clinical trial or a jurisdiction of the world where psychedelic drugs are legal
