Cheri Plantenberg

Licensed psilocybin facilitator (she/her)

As a licensed psilocybin facilitator, I am invested in fostering personal growth, resilient mental health, and joyful living. In my practice, I create a safe and supportive space for individuals and couples to explore their inner realms and embark on transformative journeys toward healing and self-discovery.

My approach to psilocybin facilitation is a non-directive method, centered on active listening, encouraging the client towards self-awareness, and instilling confidence in the wisdom of the medicine. Throughout my eight years of working with therapeutic psychedelics, I have perpetually been in awe at the insights that are revealed to each client. Following the psilocybin session, I emphasize the importance of the integration process. Healing happens in phases beyond the session as new perspectives are gained. I also have extensive experience in meditation, breathwork, sound healing, and yoga, all of which can support individuals as they reshape their thoughts and beliefs.

Helping couples deeply connect and navigate challenges is a passion of mine, which motivated me to develop a curriculum to support engaged couples in vitalizing their upcoming marriage with committed vows, enhanced communication, and a life blueprint. Marriage presents difficulties that can at times seem insurmountable. Psilocybin, used in therapeutic settings, is emerging as a viable option for couples to enhance their relationships in an altered state. As a facilitator, I am inspired to offer these services to couples who desire to explore the possibilities of deeper intimacy, release negative patterns, increase trust, and do the work of integration.

Having had personal experience with deep grief after losing my first husband to a brain tumor, I have immense compassion for spouses, children, and other family members dealing with loss. My experience led me on a path to develop expertise in healing grief and emotional trauma. Research has shown that psilocybin treatment can substantially reduce anxiety and depression related to mortality, often revealing an increased sense of connection with humanity and creation. I assist clients in addressing fears related to death, while promoting acceptance and peace.

I received my psilocybin facilitator training at The Changa Institute in Portland, Oregon in May 2023. I actively participate in a community of peer consultation and mentorship, which ensures that I continuously enhance my skills to better serve those who seek guidance in this nascent field. I have experienced first-hand its transformative power to open doors to improved mental health and well-being.

The Pacific Northwest has been my home throughout my adult life. I love travel and adventures with my husband and our six children. When I’m not supporting clients on their psilocybin journeys, I enjoy spending time in nature and pursuing my artistic passions of painting, and writing both fiction and non-fiction works.
