erin doumert psychedelic integration specialist religious trauma and plant medicine

Erin Doumert is a Religious Trauma Recovery Guide and a Psychedelic Integration Specialist based in Phoenix, Arizona. She helps women in overcoming religious trauma so that they can live fulfilling lives free from the limitations of their past. With her guidance and the aid of psychedelics and somatic experiencing, women can release the pain, discover their true selves, and live with confidence and joy.

Erin started exploring psychedelics in 2008 in her early 20s, developing a deep relationship with psychedelic medicines, and began having profound healing experiences. As someone who has experienced religious trauma firsthand, she understands just how painful and complex the healing process can be. For many people who have experienced religious trauma, the journey towards healing can be a long and challenging one. But with the right tools and support, it is possible to move past the hurt and begin to rebuild a sense of trust and connection with yourself and with others. As a Psychedelic Integration Specialist and a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, Erin provides a compassionate, non-judgmental space where you can explore your inner world, confront your pain, and ultimately find a path towards healing and growth.
