Susanna Bernat, PsyD
As a licensed psychologist in private practice, I am trained in the model of the Ketamine Training Center and Phil Wolfson, and I offer this innovative therapy to individuals seeking a deeper understanding of their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy is a safe and effective treatment that combines the benefits of ketamine with the insights and guidance of a trained psychologist. During a session, you will receive a low dose of ketamine in a comfortable and controlled environment, while I guide you through the experience and help you process any emotions or insights that arise. The model of the Ketamine Training Center emphasizes the importance of integration and the therapeutic relationship. My goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment where you can explore your innermost concerns and develop practical strategies to improve your well-being. I will work with you to integrate the insights and experiences gained during ketamine-assisted psychotherapy into your everyday life, helping you to achieve lasting transformation.
