Introduction to Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) Welcome to a space where exploration meets healing—I’m here to guide you through The Introductory KAP Experience. With over two decades as a holistic therapist, I invite you to dive into the potential of ketamine-assisted psychotherapy, where our shared journey unfolds within the realm of genuine self-exploration. In our shared exploration, we weave together your lozenge dosing sessions with therapy sessions. This offering invites you to embrace the transformative potential of KAP in a space rooted in authenticity and support with sufficient time to prepare for and integrate your journey. Immerse yourself in an approach shaped by authenticity and compassion. By building a genuine connection we foster healing through building a safe container for self-discovery. These experiences, and the mystical experiences that may be instigated by them, are sacred moments in your personal journey toward healing. My role is to create a space imbued with heartfelt support, ensuring your experience is not just therapeutic but profoundly human—a journey that resonates with your deepest intentions. Financial Accessibility: Sliding scale rates are available for those in need, facilitated by our licensed therapist Ashley Wiscovitch, LMSW. We believe everyone should have access to transformative healing experiences. Ready to Begin? If you're ready to start this personal odyssey, I’m here to walk beside you.
