Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) is a researched treatment modality used to treat trauma and depression. If you are seeking a new path for overcoming these symptoms or feel the treatments you've engaged in thus far haven't gotten you quite where you want to be, KAP could be right for you!
Ketamine is a psychoactive drug with a history of safe use since the 1970s as an anesthetic in medical settings, and the World Health Organization considers ketamine to be among the safest medicines. Ketamine has been used for over 20 years as an off-label treatment for mental health. Studies continue to show efficacy as psychedelic treatments like Ketamine gain more traction.
Ketamine will be prescribed to you by an appropriate, qualified medical professional OUTSIDE of Bonding and Behavior that Cassandra or Hannah will refer you to after your initial intake. Ketamine sessions last up to 2 hours. The client reclines or lays down after orally taking the medication. The client enters a trance-like, psychedelic state with the therapist present the entirety of the experience.
Prior to a KAP session with Bonding you will undergo an intake session within the practice, a medical evaluation outside of the practice, and there will be integration sessions between Ketamine exposures.
Cassandra Williams, LCSW has been trained through Elemental Psychedelics to provide this treatment and receives ongoing supervision and consultation.
Hannah McCauley, LSW receives training through Journey Clinical. Hannah participates in ongoing supervision and consultation.
Bonding and Behavior does not accept insurance for KAP. Ketamine sessions are billed at the rate of 150 dollars per hour. Integration sessions last one hour, sessions that include ketamine exposure are scheduled for a minimum of two hours. Sliding scale may be available upon request.
