For Immediate Release
Meet the MDMA Project Team: Aimee Copeland
Aimee Copeland is a licensed clinical social worker who works with adults and couples impacted by childhood trauma, anxiety and panic, relationship difficulties, identity confusion, low self esteem, and grief/loss.
Aimee’s work is informed by her studies in transpersonal psychology at the University of West Georgia (MA), which focused on ecopsychology and nonordinary states of consciousness. Here, Aimee developed a deep trust in the inner healing intelligence and primacy of experience, and felt called to work with plant medicine and psychedelics in particular. She also holds an MSW from Valdosta State University.
Aimee utilizes a variety of modalities with clients such as mindfulness, hypnotherapy, internal family systems, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, somatic psychotherapy, neurolinguistic programming and dialectical behavior therapy. Her certifications include Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Certified Clinical Trauma Provider, and Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher (200 hour). Aimee has completed training through the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) to provide MDMA-assisted therapy to individuals with PTSD. Aimee also currently facilitates Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy (KAP) and is working toward her post-graduate certificate in KAP through Fluence Training.
The Pearl Psychedelic Institute is a nonprofit that aims to bring psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy into mainstream practice through research, treatment, and training while reducing the barriers to patient access.
The Pearl Psychedelic Institute has been designated as one of 10 sites in the United States that will be allowed to provide access to this investigational treatment. The Pearl Psychedelic Institute is the only clinic affiliated with this program currently operating in the Southeastern United States; and specifically strives to serve the rural areas of Western North Carolina.
