Ian Pocock, LCSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker
I work with clients via video telehealth for long-term psychotherapy and for the integrative components of ketamine-assisted therapy (pre- and post- ketamine sessions). I work with clients in-person for ketamine-assisted therapy sessions at my office in the Madison Square Building. At this time I offer in-person talk therapy sessions only on a case-by-case basis. My ketamine therapy practice is unfortunately on indefinite hold due to the permanent closure of Telos Transformational Therapies. I am still accepting new clients for time-limited integration therapy, so you may want to consider working with another provider / clinic for ketamine treatments and seeing me for adjunct psychotherapeutic support.
Hi there! My name is Ian (he/they) and I offer mindfulness-based psychotherapy and ketamine-assisted psychotherapy for individuals seeking a safe place to share and learn about themselves. I am a passionate advocate for individuals on a journey of self-empowerment. My path as a therapist began in research and clinical practice with individuals with substance use disorders and severe mental illness at the Seattle VA Medical Center, where I completed my clinical internship and post-graduate training in the Center for Excellence in Substance Abuse Treatment and Education fellowship program. I received my Master’s Degree in 2015 from University of Washington School of Social Work and I have been a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker since 2019. I am a certified Tai Chi Fundamentals® Adapted Program instructor, and a graduate of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies MDMA Therapy Training Program. I have also worked as both a sitter and a shift-lead for the Zendo Project – a volunteer-operated psychedelic harm reduction program that helps to transform difficult psychedelic experiences into opportunities for learning and growth. Since 2022 I've been a member of the community advisory board for the University of Washington Center for Novel Therapeutics in Addiction Medicine. I have found the best parts of myself in expressions of joy and service to others. I love to dance, play and enjoy music, and make upcycled art with found objects. I try to let my unique light shine in a way that helps others to feel safe doing the same.
