About the Trainers

Dori Lewis, MA, LPC, LMHC

Dori Lewis (she, her, hers) is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC-S) and Clinical Supervisor with a Masters in Education (EdM) and Masters in Psychology (MA) from Columbia University in New York, NY. Dori is a co-founder of Elemental Psychedelics and the owner-operator of Reflective Healing in Fort Collins, CO, a psychotherapy group practice that specializes in psychedelic therapy using ketamine, integration therapy, transpersonal psychotherapy, and providing clinical supervision. To date, she has stewarded nearly 100 ketamine therapy sessions and countless more individual and group ceremonies. Dori is currently in an apprenticeship with a mushroom medicine elder from the Zapotec lineage in Oaxaca, Mexico. She has also received shamanic journey training from Sandra Ingerman and practices this style of altered states work in her clinical practice in Fort Collins. Her clinical background includes having earned two master's degrees from Teachers College, Columbia University, in counseling education and psychology.

Dori feels strongly that the shamanic teachings she has received and the indigenous wisdom she is currently receiving, help her bridge traditional counseling practice with the shamanic realms that hold incredible meaning and connection for psychedelic therapy and education. Dori has come to deeply value a slow and embodied approach to working with plant and psychedelic medicines – an approach that she believes helps move us from the conceptual, into the body to support a more integrated life. Additionally, she has come to honor all the pathways that bring us into our own right relationship with the natural world, including that of the medicine paths. As interest in psychedelic medicine continues to grow, Dori feels it is the responsibility of those who have a voice in the professional and psychedelic communities to stay informed and intercept as well as challenge disinformation and questionably ethical practices that are being put out into the public arena. She also firmly believes that those with power and access in this space aim to use those platforms to raise up the voices of those who carry indigenous knowledge and wisdom.  Dori@elementalpsychedelics.com

She is passionate about this work because she sees clients being able to finally shift patterns that they have been stuck in for years, and truly create a life that they want as the ketamine helps to cut the ties that bind them.
