Let's talk about our mental health today

When we suffer from mental health problems, our brain starts to change in a way that makes it even harder to get out of the mental loop.
Ketamine makes our brain more plastic. This is why psychotherapy assisted by ketamine is effective to help up transform.

Patient's voice

Despite his challenging upbringing, Joseph Murphy, of Cambria, CA bulit a successful career in adolescent psychology and another in illustration and art directing. After having unsatisfactory treatment results from years of various antidepressants and psychotherapy sessions, he came to our clinic looking for a way to recover from his long standing depression and anxiety.

 

He described the ketamine-assisted therapy as “a very pleasant as well as educational experience” and he was able to “enjoy my life in a way that I[he] hadn’t be able to”. 

How it works

2. Psychological evaluation and preparation 

Now you meet with your licensed KAP therapist online and prepare for your ketamine session, reflect on your goals for treatment, and set intentions for your experience. The preparatory session is meant to build a sense of connection between you and your therapist, as we believe that the efficacy of this medication is tremendously enhanced by a safe setting in the context of trusting relationships. 

1. Initial consult with doctor

After answering the questionnaire, you book the initial consultation with our board-certified doctor with telemedicine. You fill out the intake form and meet with the doctor to review your medical history. If online KAP is right for you, the doctor will prescribe oral ketamine which will be shipped to your home. 

4. Integration session 

Any feelings, sensations, and ideas that are brought about during your ketamine experience can be meaningful for the process of healing. Integration is about creating the space to “make meaning” of those feelings, sensations, and ideas so that they can inform daily functioning. In this way, integration therapy with our therapist increases the potential for personal transformation that ketamine offers.

3. Ketamine dosing session

You connect with your therapist online and first go over your intentions, check your vital signs, and confirm the designated support person. Then, you take the oral ketamine, turn on the therapeutic music, and lie down with an eye mask on. Throughout the experience, you are supported by the licensed therapist.
