Live Fully,

Freely, and


Welcome. I'm here for your growth, healing, and connection to spirit. To assist you in self-exploration. Heal trauma. Explore mental, emotional, spiritual, physical, and psychedelic realms. Talk freely about being human. Open deeply into you.

Hello, I'm Brook.

From the start, I’ve been on a path of healing and service, meditation, and contemplative practices because my life’s work is to help alleviate suffering and transform lives.

For nearly 30 years, I’ve had a thriving psychotherapy practice in the San Francisco Bay Area—a location resonant in nature and imagination.

Decades into my career, a significant chapter unfolded: In preparation for the legalization of psychedelic therapy, I am a Certified Psychedelic-Assisted Therapist through Integrative Psychiatry Institute.

My relationship with psychedelics began following a personal health crisis in 2021. Through my healing, I became drawn to their mind-expanding potential and ability to unlock buried feelings and traumas.

Now engrossed in study and self-exploration, I plan to make psychedelic therapy a new aspect of my work once treatments are approved.

Today, in partnership with Journey Clinical, I’m offering the first step in this chapter: Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy as a complement to psychotherapy. 

The benefits of a holistic therapeutic practice are profound. I’m here to guide your unfolding. With gratitude, Brook

My purpose is to help alleviate suffering.


The early stage of my therapeutic practice began with 20 years as a massage therapist and certified Body-Mind Centering practitioner. I deepened my capacity to work with the mind as well as the body by obtaining my master's degree in social work from Smith College for Social Work before becoming a licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist in California.


Within my psychotherapy practice, I’ve treated anxiety and depression, unresolved grief, and relationship issues—often incorporating spirituality and meditation. I also worked extensively with those suffering from medical conditions, helping them navigate self-care, relationships, and the emotional turmoil of life-threatening diagnoses. 


Additionally, I spent 25 years as a psychotherapist at UCSF’s Osher Center for Integrative Medicine. During my tenure, I taught MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) and guided imagery. I currently teach mindfulness and guided imagery at the Cancer Resource Center, where I’ve been for over two decades.

My therapy practice deepened after completing The Essentials Course in AEDP (an experiential emotion-focused approach), further enabling me to help people overcome trauma, loss, and other serious emotional challenges.

These studies, combined with an ongoing interest in relational psychoanalytic thought, attachment theory, and neuropsychology—including a course with Dr. Dan Siegel—have enhanced my understanding of how therapy and mindfulness can rewire the brain.

I’ve had the opportunity to study with Tsoknyi Rinpoche, Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, Joseph Goldstein, Sharon Salzberg, and other leading spiritual teachers. I've also completed Spirit Rock's Advanced Practitioners Program and the 2-year Heavenly Messengers training, which addressed illness, aging, death, and awakening.

The Summer of 2024 marks a dynamic new chapter of my professional career. I completed certification in psychedelic-assisted therapy from the Integrative Psychiatry Institute.


Concurrently, I’m receiving training in Relational Somatic Healing, a therapeutic modality that uses touch to heal early developmental trauma—a fulfilling integration of my earlier work as a bodyworker and Body-Mind Centering practitioner.

As a lifelong student and seasoned practitioner, I treat all layers of the psyche, from the mental to the spiritual to the somatic. Various realms exist within each of us; therefore, my therapeutic approach is fluid, moving seamlessly between modalities. This allows me to address multiple aspects and their interplay when healing the whole person.


I work fluidly, weaving modalities I’ve cultivated throughout my lifetime to create a safe space for my clients' healing and growth.
