Both Tanya and Deanna have trained with Dr. Gabor Maté in his unique style of processing and integration, and use this Compassionate Inquiry based approach in their work. They have also both dieted plants in traditions of the Amazon, and their work is influenced and guided by these plants and their teachings.

I quit my job as a naturopathic doctor so that I could do full time integration work, and it was one of the best decisions I've made. I now split my time between Vancouver, BC and the jungle, facilitating deep healing processes either online or in groups. I'm currently on sabbatical from one-on-one work with people, so that I can focus on developing more effective ways of applying this work.

Plant medicines have been profoundly healing for me: my life and relationships have been greatly enriched. My work is directly influenced by my experience with ayahuasca and plant dietas. This has greatly expanded and shaped my personal and professional understanding, and I am incredibly grateful to be able to assist you in getting the most out of your experiences with the medicine and to improve your life.
