Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy

Integration of Ketamine Treatments

If you are working with a medical provider receiving Ketamine treatment, it is essential to have a psychotherapist who is trained in Ketamine therapy to support you after your sessions. Research suggests that Ketamine sessions are most effective when coupled with psychotherapy. Having a trusted
therapist to work with helps you to integrate new insights, memories and changes you want to make. I have been trained in Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy and can provide a consultation call to discuss if we would be a good fit to work together during your Ketamine journey.

There are encouraging clinical research results that show Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) can
induce profound positive changes in one’s life, especially for those suffering from:

  •  Depression
  • Trauma
  • Anxiety
  • Chronic Pain
Ketamine Therapy

Ketamine works as a psychoactive medicine and can create an empathogenic experience, as it interacts with some of your brain’s neurotransmitter receptors. When used in a supervised setting at low doses, Ketamine therapy is quite safe. Learn more on the Psychedelics Today podcast HERE

How Does Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy Help?

Ketamine softens psychological defenses which can allow one to safely explore their inner world by
calming the sympathetic nervous system. It can accelerate therapy by assisting one to face painful
memories and experiences with greater ease and perspective and less of a flight/fight response.
Ketamine can help one to dissolve stuck patterns and reveal split off parts of one’s psyche for a fuller
integration of the self. Because Ketamine promotes neuroplasticity- which is the brain’s ability to learn,
change and adapt- one can make new connections, ways of thinking which support the ability for new
habits and patterns to emerge.
