MY NAME IS SERAPHIM
and be ready always to give an answer to every man who asketh you a reason for the hope that is in you
I am a Navy Veteran who has seen that we never have to remain stuck where we are no matter how hard things are.
A decade ago I was living separate from my wife and children addicted to heroin on the streets of Chicago. After treatment I was still struggling in my life, marriage, career and then I decided to get healthy and break the cycle of addiction on my life.
Instead of psychotropic meds, anti anxiety pills, alcohol and painkillers I found the amazing world of plant medicine, and thus began my journey of healing.
Free from Heroin for over a decade I was restored to my faith, my family, and started a new career in Telecommunications. Recently we bought a house in the mountains of Colorado and I completed my Masters degree in Counseling. Now, I want to share that journey of healing with you.
I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Coaching, Christian Holistic Therapy, Psychedelic Integration Therapy, Drug and Alcohol Interventions, Recovery Support for addictions in a harm reduction and trauma informed therapeutic model.
I have a Masters Degree in Human Services: Addiction Therapy from Liberty University, and a B.Sc in Management and Christian leadership from Colorado Christian University. I am a member of the American Association Of Christian Counselors, American Association Of Psychedelics, and collaborate with the Pike Peak Region Psychedelic Professional Meet Up, which meets monthly for education and networking with Psychedelic Medicine professionals.
I am the director of H.E.R.O.E.S :Veterans Healing Veterans which is a Non Profit dedicated to providing veterans affordable access to psychedelic medicine and training to enter the field in Colorado.
I also work with Patients who have a serious medical issue and desire to use psychedelic therapy or Cannabis Therapy to self-treat their illness by Harm Reduction and Safety Education, advocacy with their doctors and families, and Caregiving services.
