Meet Me & My Why 

Hi there! I’m Jess – a storyteller, adventure seeker, and Earthkeeper. Originally from Brazil, I've found my new home in the Netherlands, where I’ve been working as a psychedelic-assisted medicine facilitator and microdosing coach since 2020, specializing in psilocybin-containing truffles. I’m also an educator and the co-founder of Women On Psychedelics, a platform dedicated to empowering women and destigmatizing mental health and drug use.

My Story

I have travelled to more than 30 countries and have lived in 4 different ones in the past 10 years of my life. Quite often I also found myself transitioning from one career path to another until I finally found my soul's purpose in psychedelic work. These years were an ongoing journey of self-discovery and reinviting myself. And also the roots of a deeper inner work that informed me to offer the services I do today.
 
My grandparents raised me after I lost both of my parents at a young age. My father died when I was nine years old of pneumonia caused by HIV, and my mother, who was always a non-consistent presence, died as a consequence of her relationship with drug addiction ten years after that. I guess through these life experiences, I understood at a young age how stigmatization and ignorance can negatively impact people's lives.

By the time I was 30 years old, after experiencing the loss of almost all my family members, I had to face my own anxieties of feeling abandoned and alone. Despite going through grief processes more frequently than anyone I know, I discovered that they are never straightforward and have no single formula for how to be navigated. 
 
One fact is that overcoming this kind of pain taught me a lot about who I am. These experiences have deeply shaped my work, mirroring the transformative journeys psychedelics can offer.

Reinventing Myself

Growing up, love in my home was conditional, tied to control and often accompanied by emotional and physical abuse. This environment distorted my self-worth and led me into unhealthy relationships, mirroring my tumultuous upbringing. In my late 20s, after leaving a toxic relationship, I found myself in the depths of depression and anxiety. It was then that I turned to psychedelics for healing.
 

Psychedelics became a catalyst for my rebirth. They helped me shed the layers of my past self – the Jessika who felt powerless and constantly sought approval. Through this journey, I reconnected with a new, empowered version of myself.

Empowering Women

My work with women stems from a deep need to heal my sisterhood and mother wounds. The more I empower other women, the more this wound heals within me. I believe in the transformative power of collaboration and uplifting each other’s voices. Together, we can change the way we navigate life. Working with women, my clients, and my teachers, has shown me that we all hold immense power – we just need to remember how to access it without fear of being too much or not enough.
