Welcome to episode 217 of the Sexology Podcast! Today I'm delighted to welcome Dee Dee Goldpaugh, LCSW to the podcast. In this episode Dee Dee talks to me about psychedelic assisted therapy, how it can be used safely, and the benefits people can experience from it when done properly with a therapist.

Dee Dee Goldpaugh, LCSW (they/them/theirs) is a psychotherapist in private practice in New York City and Woodstock, NY. Their practice specializes in queer, sex and body-positive psychotherapy, and psychedelic integration, a form of therapy that assists clients in processing and applying the lessons from transpersonal and mystical experiences to their lives. Dee Dee has taught and written widely on the topic of psychedelics and sexuality.

As a survivor of sexual violence, Dee Dee sought healing with plant medicines in Peru to heal PTSD and has since become an advocate for therapist education, cognitive liberty, and the decriminalization of psychedelic medicines. They are a leader in their field on the topic of psychedelic integration and healing sexual trauma.
