More Info About My Practice

One thing that sets my practice apart is my ability to use ketamine assisted psychotherapy. I offer a therapeutic modality called Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) in partnership with an organization called Journey Clinical. Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) is a holistic modality in which ketamine is used as a complement to psychotherapy to help eligible patients experience more frequent breakthroughs and sustained improvement in symptoms.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Psychotherapy can help individuals understand and manage their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to improve their mental well-being. It can be used to address a wide range of issues such as anxiety, depression, negative thoughts, and relationship problems. My therapeutic approach is unique, drawing on the wisdom of both Eastern and Western philosophy, blending the power of cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and ancient stoic practices to help individuals understand and transcend the difficulties that are holding them back. Through a journey of self-discovery and healing, individuals can uncover their unique strengths and experiences, set important goals, and develop personalized treatment plans to help them reach their full potential. My ultimate goal is to empower individuals, to help them alleviate their current pain and become more aware of their feelings, patterns of behavior and relationship to themselves and others, to help them reach the goals they have set for themselves in the beginning of the treatment.
