Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy


Do you feel like you’ve tried everything to overcome your depression, anxiety, or trauma-related symptoms without relief or too many intolerable side effects? Are you feeling stuck? If yes, we’re pleased to announce we are now offering ketamine-assisted psychotherapy (KAP). KAP differs from the primary ketamine treatments being offered; instead of administering ketamine intravenously (IV) in a sterile medicalized setting, we offer an alternative, individualized approach…and no IVs. This is provided in a warm comfortable safe space with carefully selected music and when needed gentle guidance. This ensures you are medically monitored and therapeutically supported during your experience.


If you are unfamiliar with ketamine here is a brief history of how and why it is being used for Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy. Ketamine was invented in the 1960s and has traditionally been used in higher doses as an anesthetic (for surgery) with children and adults. It has also been used during war times on the battlefield as an effective analgesic (pain medication). In recent years, ketamine has been administered as an “off-label” treatment, per the FDA, for psychiatric conditions that have been resistant to currently available modalities such as medications and/or psychotherapy. For many, ketamine has been found to provide rapid, sometimes immediate relief of major depressive symptoms, including suicidal ideation; however, the degree and length of symptom relief is variable from patient to patient with some requiring few doses and others needing maintenance administration to experience ongoing symptom relief and remission. As with other mental modalities KAP is not a magic bullet, the client’s ongoing personal work (e.g. lifestyle changes & ongoing integration therapy) are integral in the effectiveness of KAP and the duration of experienced improvements.


  • Psychiatric evaluation and medical record review for medical clearance (required): $250

    1. 3 in-office KAP sessions over 1-2 weeks (every other day) fees are $1300. Patients are reassessed to determine if additional KAP sessions [beyond the initial 3] may be beneficial.

    2. 6 in-office KAP sessions over 2-3 weeks fees are $2400.

    3. Maintenance KAP: 1 in-office session for clients previously treated with ketamine and/or KAP for mental health conditions without insurance is $375.

    4. For optimal and long term benefits, we recommend weekly therapy for 8-12 weeks post-KAP with a knowledgeable integration therapist.
