Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy  

“The purpose of KAP is to create a non-ordinary (“altered”) state of consciousness in order to facilitate profound transpersonal (“transcendental,” “mystical,” “spiritual,” “religious”) peak experiences that may be beneficial in resolving your existential problems, accelerating your psycho-spiritual growth and lead you to a deep personal transformation and optimization of your lifestyle. Such change is best facilitated within a structured supportive psychotherapeutic milieu in connection with therapists who have a view of your issues, hopes, desires, and struggles. As a byproduct of your experience you may well feel improvement in your emotional state and reduction in symptoms that bother you such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic manifestations. You may notice that you are a bit different after a ketamine experience and that difference may well be liberating and allow for new mindfulness and new behavior. It is frequently the case that a ketamine experience may promote happiness, empathy, loving-kindness to self and others, and a sense of greater self-acceptance and peacefulness.”— Phil Wolfson, MD

Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) is a safe and highly-effective modality for the resolution of treatment resistant depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), chronic pain, anxiety disorders, and a variety of other mental and physical disorders. KAP also offers an opportunity for healthy individuals to create psycho-spiritual breakthroughs, discover creative solutions, and resolve unconscious patterns and self-limiting behaviors.   

We are interested in your holistic overall wellbeing, not simply ketamine treatment so discernment is used during evaluation.
