Season 1 Episode 9: What Do You Want? with Jeanna Eichenbaum

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.

Rainer Maria Rilke

Welcome Back to the Queer Circle, where Queer healers step up to the mic to share their journeys and what they’d say to their younger selves. Today we have Ms. Jeanna Eichenbaum. Jeanna (she/her) is a Queer Trans Jewish Dyke Woman in San Francisco/Occupied Yelamu Ramaytush land. She has a private psychotherapy practice working with adolescents, couples, and various non-monogamous configurations. Currently she is working remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Jeanna specializes in working with and providing support to Queer, Trans and Gender variant people. She also practices Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy at Healing Realms Center, San Francisco. Ketamine, in the dosages used, is a legal psychedelic medicine showing great promise in the treatment of depression and anxiety, as well as being a powerful tool of self-exploration. Jeanna’s training: a Masters in Social Work from UC-Berkeley in 1986, practicing as a licensed (LCSW) since 1989. Jeanna completed an advanced training in Psychedelic Assisted Psychotherapy at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) in 2018.
