Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) & Plant Medicine In partnership with Journey Clinical, I offer therapeutic Ketamine sessions in my Brooklyn or Glen Cove, NY office. Each dosing session is tailored to your individual process and supported by regular therapy sessions to support the healthy integration of the awareness offered through the medicine.
