Ketamine-assisted therapy is a groundbreaking, integrative, trauma-informed experience that can be used to improve a wide range of mental health symptoms. Ketamine has a completely different mechanism of action from any other antidepressant medication and offers hope to the millions of people who have not found adequate help through therapy and medication alone.

Ketamine is a medicine that helps you access deeper parts of your psyche, and in the context of therapy, may help you understand this material in ways that may have been inaccessible in traditional talk and trauma therapy. Ketamine-assisted therapy is effective because we will create a safe and intentional “set and setting,” which refers to the environment and context in which you take the medicine, as well as the preparation and integration experiences.

As a result, the shared experience of KAT in groups can boost the benefits one might achieve.
