So Many Questions

Your clients want to talk with you about psychedelics. They might be using psilocybin or ayahuasca or MDMA over the weekend. They might go to a ketamine clinic that provides little to no psychological support. They might have heard good things about micro-dosing mushrooms from a friend.


You don't know what to say to them or where to go for answers. Sure, you can find a lot of webinars of lectures about psychedelic therapy in clinical trials, but your clients are in the real world, not the lab. How applicable are the results of research studies with their rigorous inclusion/exclusion criteria, carefully controlled protocols, and measured doses of pure medicines? Your clients aren't experiencing any of those things, so how are you supposed to know what the risks and potential benefits actually are in your office? 

You Need A Plan

You need to know specific risks to assess for, warning signs of destabilization, treatment interventions to encourage healing and transformation. You need to be able to use these tools today, not in five years if/when the government reschedules psilocybin or MDMA.

Achieve Clarity

You deserve to feel clarity, competence, and compassion when you talk with your clients about their use of psychedelics. You deserve to know that you can safely and ethically support your clients around their journeys.
