Why we are Uniquely Qualified to Assist You on Your Journey to Wellness?

We aim to reduce the trial-and-error approach commonly used in Western Medicine approaches by obtaining a more in-depth approach to all the genetic/inherited as well environmental, cultural, and transgenerational factors that impact your health and well-being.

Using an integrative or whole brain-body approach to restoring wellness, we provide a personalized approach to addressing root causes of symptoms from hereditary/genetic and transgenerational spiritual predispositions, phase of life epigenetic and hormonal contributions, environmental food sensitivities and allergens and bioenergetic factors that underly root cause origins of symptoms and disease states.

Our goal is to help patients get to the root cause of illness, which is often spiritual trauma, to reduce or eliminate their dependency on pharmaceuticals and heal, not just manage trauma or debilitating mental states. 

We offer conventional and integrative psychiatric and psychotherapy services as well as a variety of Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) options to more people suffering from a variety of conditions including anxiety, treatment resistant depression, PTSD, OCD and eating disorders.

Ketamine is now the most effective antidepressant treatment available and doesn’t typically require long-term use. Ketamine is a legal synthetic psychedelic that has been around for 50 years, primarily for pain-reducing anesthesia. While its antidepressant features have been well-known for decades, the durable therapeutic effects are enhanced significantly with ketamine assisted psychotherapy (KAP). Ketamine combined with KAP can yield truly transformative long-lasting healing positive patient outcomes.

We truly understand the transformative spiritual healing potential of psychedelic medicine and specifically with ketamine + KAP to alleviate trauma responses as well as mental illness. We offer in person treatment with Spravato an intranasal form of ketamine covered by most insurance companies as well as a cash-based option for individual or group virtual/at-home compounded ketamine for intranasal or oral troche formulations).

I strive to ensure that each patient is heard and involved as an active participant in their health decisions and healing processes.
