The Treatment You’ve Been Looking For

What is KAP?

Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) is an innovative approach that differs from traditional therapy options. 

A key part of KAP, unsurprisingly, is the use of ketamine infusions to accentuate and enhance the therapeutic session. Likewise, therapy can enhance the positive effects of ketamine infusion.

Ketamine infusions can be incredibly effective on their own, but having a therapist guide you through the experience and work through your feelings and thought processes can strengthen the amount of good this treatment can do for your mental health.

KAP can be used to address several treatment-resistant conditions like depression, PTSD, OCD, anxiety disorders, and chronic pain conditions.

Psychedelic Integration Support: $900

Psychedelic experiences can open the door to transformation, but it is the integration process that leads to lasting benefits. In this six-part process, I will properly prepare you for your infusion so that you get the most out of your experience. Post-infusion, we’ll take the insights and lessons learned and apply them to your life. Whether you have a current therapist or psychiatrist, this package is for anyone, as we will be approaching your integration uniquely in regards to psychedelics.

This package includes:

1 one-hour health history intake session
1 one hour intention setting and psychedelic preparation session
4 one-hour post-infusion integration/counseling sessions (ideally after infusions 1, 3, 6, and 2-4 weeks following the last infusion)

Pre-Infusion Nutrition and Lifestyle Support Package: $550

A three-part session with me that will optimize your ketamine experience and significantly improve your overall health. By making uniquely targeted diet and lifestyle modifications, we will work together to optimize the internal terrain so that the medicine has more room and space to be effective. During this time, I can also help you wean or discontinue current medications.

Ideally, sessions 1 & 2 are completed BEFORE your first ketamine infusion to maximize your success, however, you can begin at any time (even upon completion of your infusion protocol). This package is ideal for those who appreciate an integrative approach and are passionate about healing the whole body.

This includes:
1 one-hour health history intake session
1-one-hour functional nutritional counseling session
1 one-hour follow-up nutritional and lifestyle support session

Comprehensive Psychedelic Preparation and Integration Support: $1350

This package is for anyone who is serious about healing and who wants to optimize their ketamine experience (and investment) by receiving the most comprehensive and high-quality care that is not offered anywhere else. I will set you up for success before the infusion, creating an internal environment conducive to healing, and then, hold your hand and keep you accountable as we take the insights and lessons learned and make that dream vision of your life a reality.

This package includes:
*everything in the Nutritional/Lifestyle support package PLUS the integration support package
1 one-hour health history intake session
1 one-hour functional nutritional counseling session
1 one-hour intention setting and psychedelic preparation session

Follow-up Nutritional and Lifestyle Support (single sessions): $175/hour

Follow-up Integration Support (single sessions): $150/hour

We never stop integrating and are always learning and evolving. Life happens, triggers arise, and our faith is tested. This is where follow-up integration is key―to reflect on the progress you’ve made, process and act upon new insights, and recommend improved strategies to continue forward momentum.

Cacao Ceremonies (cost varies from $50-100 per ceremony)

A cacao ceremony is a sacred space where you can set intentions for what you are calling in, allow  your heart to be opened, and connect with yourself and others. 

Cacao is a psychoactive plant that creates shifts in how you think and feel. Cacao is chocolate in its purest form, and for that reason has numerous health benefits. Those who consume cacao may experience elevated mood, heightened focus, enhanced creativity, and a deepened connection to mind, body, spirit, and soul. And when paired with ketamine therapy it facilitates long-lasting results. 

If you’re looking to open your heart, deepen your connection to self, and create a gentle, loving, and compassionate attitude towards life, then a cacao ceremony is for you. 

I hold community cacao ceremonies every month and am also available for private group ceremonies. Click HERE to stay up-to-date for my next ceremony.

Look No Further

What Does a Session Look Like?

The first session determines if KAP is the right treatment for you and identifies your treatment’s end goals.

The following sessions may last anywhere from 90 minutes to 3 hours, but the length of the session greatly varies depending upon the dose, response, recovery time, as well as other factors.

Much like ketamine infusions or traditional therapy, KAP is most effective when you commit to an individualized treatment plan that stretches out over several weeks.
