Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy with Ketamine
I work with ketamine-assisted therapy in two ways; one - as an integration coach for clients who are receiving intra-muscular ketamine though Dr. Remi Drozd at Santa Barbara Ketamine, and two - I offer ketamine-assisted talk therapy in my office. The two can also be combined. I will work with you to determine the best course of treatment that will help you reach your goals, as every person's needs and intentions are unique.
Ketamine-assisted therapy helps kickstart a myriad of positive changes in behavior and in the brain, and has been clinically proven to be extremely effective in treating depression, anxiety, PTSD and more. This form of treatment helps you positively dissociate from triggers and overwhelming emotions, and supports you in integrating and overcoming traumas and symptoms. Key factors for successful treatment are preparation and integration, and continuous support throughout your healing journey.
