Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy or KAP is a therapeutic method that addresses a large variety of mental health problems like depression, PTSD, treatment-resistant depression, addiction, and anxiety disorders.In addition to psychotherapy, Ketamine is administered to deepen and enhance the therapeutic process.Administration of Ketamine in low doses in conjunction with psychotherapy, softens the psychological defenses temporarily, allowing psychotherapeutic processing and deep self-reflection of the person.
Our mission is to make ketamine assisted psychotherapy accessible to more people who need it. Isha Health is a team of clinicians who have extensive training and experience providing ketamine assisted psychotherapy in collaboration with patients’ psychotherapists. Our clinicians have been trained in high renowned training centers such as CIIS, IPI, Polaris Insight Center, and UC Berkeley, and treated hundreds of patients in the past years.
Isha provides thorough medical evaluation, prescription, and on going monitoring as well as helpful tools such as journaling, intention setting guide, music playlists, and more for a monthly flat fee of $350 (patients pay the pharmacy for the medication separately). Patients also have access to unlimited messaging and quick 15 minute check in video calls with our physician when they have questions or concerns during the month. As a psychotherapist, you can focus on providing quality psychotherapy sessions to your clients.
1. Direct your patients to https://www.isha.health for the initial medical evaluation. Isha doctor will reveiw their problems, medical/psychiatric history, and other relevant information.

“One of my weekly clients started working with Isha for ketamine therapy a few months ago. He was on a low dose treatment but started to show improvements of symptoms within a week and also began to implement some of the tools we discussed in previous sessions which he had never been able to before. I am in KAP training now and excited to add KAP to my treatment modality.”

“It’s been a pleasure to work with Isha Health to provide KAP to my clients. I have been in private practice for over a decade and started offering KAP after completing trainings. I have worked with many doctors in the past but I truly feel that we provide the care collaboratively with isha and my clients love it. Highly recommend.”

“I really appreciate Dr. Mai’s emphasis on the psychotherapy component of ketamine treatment. Many of the ketamine prescribers who I have worked with had little interest in psychotherapy. She not only understands ketamine in and out as an MD, but also cares about collaboratively taking care of clients with therapists. She is easy to approach to and very responsive. I will continue to work with Isha Health to provide KAP to my clients.”
