Hello—I'm Eric Shumake, founder of Psytelligence. We empower Psychedelic Therapists with reliable business guidance.

Transforming the practice of Psychedelic Therapy from being complex and risky to being simple and safe is at the heart of what we do.

We focus on ensuring that ease, safety, and deep connection with patients lead the way, rather than just financial gains.

Instead of merely asking, “How can I profit from Psychedelic Therapy?”, we are asking: “What kind of safe, accessible, sustainable, and transformative practice can I build?”

Our approach simplifies operations, prioritizes effectiveness, and encourages safety – shifting your practice from challenging to manageable.

Whether you’re working alone or with a team, our goal is clear: Make your practice easier and safer – enabling you to pursue your passion with confidence.
