From Darkness to Light: A Therapist's Journey Through Psychedelics and Trauma


As a trauma therapist, I've had the privilege of working with countless individuals who have been impacted by trauma. But nothing could have prepared me for the profound impact that psychedelics had on my own life and practice.


I've always been fascinated by the potential of psychedelics to aid in the healing process. As a therapist, I've seen firsthand how these substances can help individuals confront and overcome their deepest fears and traumas. But it wasn't until I underwent a psychedelic-assisted therapy program myself that I truly understood the power of these substances.


My journey began with a series of ayahuasca ceremonies, which allowed me to confront the darkest corners of my own psyche. As I delved deeper into the depths of my own mind, I began to uncover the hidden traumas that had been lurking beneath the surface. It was a painful and intense process, but one that ultimately led me to a place of profound healing and transformation.


As a therapist, I've always believed that the key to healing is not just about erasing the past, but about integrating it into our present. Psychedelics have given me a new perspective on this process, allowing me to see the world in a way that is both more nuanced and more compassionate.


Perhaps the most profound aspect of my journey has been the connection I've made with others who have undergone similar experiences. In a world that often seems fragmented and disconnected, psychedelics have given me a sense of belonging and community that I never thought possible.


In "Death Trip," Seth Lorinczi's memoir about his journey through psychedelics and Holocaust legacy, I see a reflection of my own journey. His story is a testament to the power of psychedelics to heal and transform our lives, and I hope that it will inspire others to embark on their own journeys of self-discovery.


Do you think psychedelics can be a helpful tool for healing and processing trauma?

  • Yes, it can be.

  • No, not really.

  • Maybe, unsure.
