John T. Pietrzak, Psy.D.*

As a California Licensed Clinical Psychologist an important part of my practice is focused on helping to improve the lives of people living with chronic mental illness throughout the Los Angeles area.  In this capacity I visit each of the board and care homes I serve  on a weekly basis.  Contact me for more information if you are a board and care  owner or administrator wanting to improve the quality of life for your residents by having me or one of my psychological assistants visit your facility on a regular basis.

Another important aspect of my work relates to personal development and spiritual growth through experiences of nonordinary states of consciousness.  Out of my Topanga Canyon office I help people at all stages of their inquiries and journeys relating to these states.  Though nonordinary states of consciousness may occur spontaneously, they are most often induced through breathwork, drumming or some other technique, or arrived at via the ceremonial use of entheogens**.  This work includes helping people to define their intentions for exploring these states, and afterwards the integrating of their experiences in order to lead happier and healthier lives.

**Entheogens are chemical substances, typically of plant origin, that produce nonordinary states of consciousness offering potential for healing on all levels and opportunities for the experiential understanding of Unity.
