Patti Bee, MS, LPC, LMHC IFS Therapist

Patti Bee, M.S. is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Iowa and a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Wisconsin. She has been a therapist for 11 years and has been trained as an Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapist, practicing IFS full time for the past 8+ years. IFS Therapy has been recommended by the MAPS Project as a preferred treatment to be used with psychedelic medicine journeys such as Ketamine. The MAPS Project is the premier organization sponsoring the reemergence of Psychedelic Therapy Research for using psychedelic substances in the treatment of mental health conditions.

Patti has also trained in Ketamine Integration Psychotherapy. She is currently enrolled in a Ketamine-Assisted Therapy (KAP) 1-Year Program, to also become qualified to sit with clients during their actual medicine journeys.
At this time, Patti offers Ketamine-Integration Therapy as both preparatory session(s) before you have your first Ketamine medicine journey, and then after your Ketamine sessions. The Preparatory Psychotherapy session(s) are offered as a way to decrease inner obstacles before the Ketamine experience. In the Ketamine Integration Psychotherapy, after your Ketamine session, Patti works with you to enhance a more durable symptom reduction experience.

Patti will assist you in strengthening those new neural pathways that Ketamine medicine sessions are known for opening up. She supports you in solidifying new ways of being, offering her IFS expertise to facilitate deep inner repair of old distressing patterns, and previously stuck traumas. Patti’s work will help you discover new and unexpected ways to find inner resolution. This can lead to being more grounded in your core center, garnering a greater sense of confidence and clarity in your life.

Ketamine-integration psychotherapy, using the IFS model, holds these outcome
opportunities. There is also research to back up this claim. However, each client will need to be aware that results may differ, and that we cannot guarantee treatment goals absolutely. Given these parameters though, you will be provided with the leading-edge treatment available today for Ketamine-Integration Psychotherapy.
