When prescribed by a doctor and used in conjunction with psychotherapy, ketamine can be a safe and effective treatment for a variety of mental health conditions, including depression, PTSD/Complex PTSD, anxiety disorders, traumatic grief, and more. It can be particularly helpful in treating suicidal feelings and hopelessness. I collaborate with an experienced psychiatrist to complete a comprehensive intake and evaluation. Together, we will determine if ketamine-assisted therapy may be a beneficial treatment for you.
After several preparatory therapy sessions to establish trust, determine treatment goals, and orient you to the experience, you will take your ketamine prescription during a three-hour guided journey and therapy session in a safe and comfortable treatment room. Therapy after each journey supports the healing and integration process. The length of treatment with ketamine-assisted therapy will vary.
I've completed four of five requirements in MAPS's training program to be a certified MDMA-assisted therapist. Currently, I am participating as a study therapist at an Expanded Access clinical site. Phase 3 trials have been completed. Hopefully, this treatment will be approved by the FDA and available more widely in the next couple of years. In the interim, please see MAPS Clinical Trial website to learn about the research and opportunities to participate in Expanded Access programs and other clinical trials.
