What is ketamine-assisted psychotherapy?
“Ketamine-assisted therapy works. It really, really works.”
What is ketamine?
Ketamine is a transformative medicine that can rapidly address mental and spiritual symptoms related to many forms of anxiety, depression, and trauma.
Ketamine is also the only psychedelic that is also a dissociative. This means that you receive the benefits for the mind and a whole body release of anxiety. The body holds onto negative thoughts and patterns and this dissociation is a powerful part of the process.
Ketamine is FDA-approved as an anesthetic and analgesic, and has been listed on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines since 1985.
Ketamine is also prescribed off-label to treat a wide range of mental health issues.
What can ketamine do for me?
Ketamine frees the mind from patterns of negative feelings and thought loops so the brain can create new, healthier paths. This can be almost impossible for many of us to do on our own.
Ketamine stimulates the production of chemicals that restore and strengthen connections between neurons.
And just as importantly, we practice deep integration. After your sessions, you have the support to maximize these benefits and make them part of a new, freer, more buoyant you.
With its ability to promote the creation of new, healthy neural connections, ketamine can improve mental health and create more space to love and feel loved; to be creative; to get fit; to enjoy life, however that looks to you.
The effects of ketamine therapy can last for months or even create permanent shifts, especially with multiple sessions, and our integration support.
Method and process
We work with Journey Clinical, our prescribing physician partners. They prescribe the most gentle delivery method – sublingual tablets. The tablets take effect in 10 to 15 minutes and have the smoothest onset and decline.

How it works
Ketamine is the Great Unsticker. If you feel stuck in repeated relapses, ineffective meds, or growth plateaus, Ketamine might be the power tool for the job.
Once you reach out, we will guide you through the process. Here is how it looks:
-Call us (or email or DM, we’re here).
-Set up an appointment with one of our therapists for an Intake.In the Intake you can talk about your concerns and goals and make sure the therapist is the right fit for you.
-We will help you set up an appointment with our prescribing partner Journey Clinical. They will ask you some questions and create an appropriate dosage for your journeys.
-Then we get to the good stuff: The Journey. Every Journey has three parts: Preparation, Journey, Integration. They are all equally important and build on each other.
-We recommend at least four Journeys but we will continue to communicate and find the cadence that serves you.
