I’m Dee Lafferty, MSSW, LCSW. With two decades of nurturing individuals towards better wellness, I am passionately dedicated to unlocking clients’ innate potential, which is why I opened Inner Guidance Services Inc. Beyond my enriching work with psychedelic experiences, I offer therapeutic support at my serene private practice in the heart of Albany, Oregon. When the day’s work is done, the joy of my family and the delightful company of my three malti-poos keeps me grounded. It’s a privilege to journey with you. Welcome.
I am Pat Winczewski, a certified psilocybin facilitator with a rich history of dedication to mental well-being and personal growth. Since June of 2023, I have been privileged to work with psilocybin as a means of promoting mental wellness. I hold the distinction of being the inaugural graduate of my training cohort and had the honor of being the pioneer facilitator at one of Oregon’s premier psilocybin service centers.
My academic foundation is in science, with a Chemistry focus, for which I earned a Bachelor’s degree from the esteemed Oregon State University. I have a personal and professional interest in nutrition, food science, and sustainability. Following my academic pursuits, I spent many years working my way up through the Food Manufacturing industry, serving in pivotal roles in Quality Assurance, Customer Care, Sustainability and Safety. I bring this same passion for safe, quality, care to my facilitation practice to ensure the best experience for my clients.
On a more personal note, I have always been driven to serve and give back to my community. In my youth, I proudly achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, which is at the foundation of my passion for giving back all of these years later. I have contributed significantly to organizations like the American Red Cross and Jackson Street Youth Services through volunteer efforts, reflecting my commitment to leadership and community service.
Having been born and raised in Oregon, I share a profound connection with its diverse terrains, and immersive culture. I love spending time at the coast, hiking around our forests, and visiting the many scenic and serene places this beautiful state has to offer. I have been skiing on Mt. Hood, and have floated the Willamette River. As a Quality Assurance and Food Science professional, I can confidently tell you that Tillamook Ice Cream is the best in the world! Autumn is my favorite season, warm clothes, bonfires, and my favorite activity: foraging for the Pacific Golden Chanterelle, Oregon’s official state mushroom. They smell of apricots and they match in a vibrant orange color, a nutritious delicacy that is rarely sold at the market. Paired with the fresh scent of our serene conifer forests, I can see why the mushrooms love it!
Beyond my professional and academic pursuits, I have a diverse range of interests that add depth to my practice. I have a particular passion for spiritual health, searching for answers to the many questions this universe holds. I believe every person has a place, purpose, and responsibility to care for the earth and each other. I am very interested in modern psychology, how we learn, and the different parts of your mind relating to the soul. I take an inclusive interfaith approach, as my goal is to serve you and your needs, respectful of your personal beliefs or lack thereof.
At the core of my practice is a commitment to social justice. I have crafted a comprehensive Social Equity Plan, endorsed by the Oregon Health Authority, ensuring that my services remain inclusive, accessible, and beneficial to all.
Fun, joy, and laughter are essential components of well-being, I bring this philosophy to every interaction both personal and professional.
Let’s embark on a transformative journey together.
My experience prior to finding psilocybin services has been in healthcare. Initially, I worked as a nurse assistant and for the last five years as an ICU Nurse. I grew up on the coast in Newport but have made Albany home.
I have a personal commitment to my clients to provide a safe setting in which inner potential can be discovered. I specifically hope to be a safe haven for clients of all backgrounds and professions to be able to explore psilocybin without fear of workforce retaliation. Creating a safe container for your psilocybin experience will help you begin your psilocybin journey with the knowledge that client/ facilitator confidentiality is of utmost importance. I am honored to be a part of your experience, and I look forward to facilitating you in the near future.
I am a licensed psilocybin facilitator in Oregon. I received my Psychedelic Assisted Therapy training from the Integrative Psychiatry Institute and am currently working for IPI leading group psilocybin experientials for their students. When not working with Psilocybin, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with more then a decade of combined experience in hospice and palliative care. I received my MSW from Portland State University and BA from St John’s College, Santa Fe. I am awed by the healing power of psilocybin and honored to work in partnership with it. I enjoy reading, writing, music, outdoors and family.
Amy Koehlinger (she/her) is an educator with over 25 years of experience in post-secondary and graduate settings. She holds a Ph.D. in Religious Studies from Yale University, and an M.A. in U.S. History from the University of Oregon. Amy researches, writes, and teaches about historical intersections of religious experience and structures of power in the United States. She became interested in the therapeutic use of psilocybin through teaching about the neurology of religion. Amy trained in psilocybin facilitation through InnerTrek and was a member of the first graduating class of trained psilocybin facilitators in Oregon. In the 1990s, before her current career, Amy worked in the field of HIV/AIDS and retains from that experience a commitment to both LGBTQ equity and also to compassionate and empowered approaches to end-of-life, including the therapeutic use of psilocybin as part of hospice care.
I am a psychology student at Oregon State University. I’m excited to be part of this amazing team to bring connection and healing to our local community and beyond. When I’m not working, I love playing with my two chihuahuas, cooking with my family and meditating. I am training to be a facilitator and look forward to working with clients soon.
I am 24 years old and originally from West Virginia. I am working towards a degree in psychology. I enjoy helping people and validating their experiences. I like music, movies, collecting physical media, reading, photography and nature.
I am a student working on my animal sciences degree at Oregon State University. I am dedicated to improving Oregon communities through outreach and education. When not working, I enjoy spending time with my dog, snake and three cats.
I am currently a permitted worker and studying to become a licensed facilitator. I am always striving to be compassionate and accepting of others. I am interested in LGBTQIA+ advocacy and work hard to make the service center a safe and welcoming space for all. I live in Albany, Oregon. In my free time, I enjoy nature, painting, history and music.
As someone who has lived in the Corvallis-Albany area since I was in grade school, I’ve grown attached to our community and the people within it. I hope with Inner Guidance I can work to help people like me who have had struggles with mental health and want to do better. In my off hours I can be found pursuing music performance and collecting, and spending time with my friends and loved ones.
