    Collapse Overview
    I am a clinician-investigator with a background in community mental health, neuroscience, integrative medicine, and trauma psychotherapy. As the Local Recovery Coordinator for the San Francisco VA Health Care System, I am responsible for coordinating and developing effective interventions to support the recovery of veterans from the most acute and intractable forms of mental disorder and psychological injury. My guiding aim as a researcher has been to elucidate the trajectory and key treatment principles of recovery from trauma and violence, with a particular interest in the scope of non-ordinary states of consciousness to facilitate healing and recovery, prioritizing the needs of historically underserved communities. My approach to research is informed by a transdisciplinary perspective integrating my training as a psychotherapist and neuroscientist with a background in the humanities and philosophy.
