Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy is a unique therapeutic method which combines low to moderate doses of ketamine to enhance and deepen psychotherapy. Within a safe, supportive setting facilitated by a trained psychotherapist and/or physician, KAP promotes a temporary softening of psychological defenses, allowing for deeper self-reflection and processing. This can lead to a disruption of negative feelings and patterning. Many clients find that this interruption can provide significant shifts in overall outlook and well-being.

What is KAP?

KAP can be an effective adjunctive therapy for:
  • Anxiety

  • PTSD/trauma

  • Treatment-resistant depression (TRD)

  • Bipolar I and II depressive phases

  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)

  • Grief and loss/end of life distress

  • Distress related to chronic or life-limiting illness

The exact nature and sequence of the treatment process varies depending on the particular issues being addressed, our clinician’s treatment recommendations, and each individual’s needs and goals.

KAP is a short term treatment, typically occurring over a period of several months. Clients continue to integrate insights and consolidate gains over a longer period of time with support from their referring mental healthcare providers.


Treatment includes initial medical and psychological assessments, preparatory sessions, in-person medicine sessions during which ketamine is administered via sub-lingual lozenges or intramuscular injection, and essential integration psychotherapy sessions.

Clients report a wide range of experiences including:


  • New insights and shifts in perspective

  • Increased openness

  • Reduction in mental health symptoms

  • Lessening of obsessive/negative thoughts

  • Relief from existential distress

  • Increase in positive outlook

  • Greater self-compassion & self-esteem

Our team includes Lisa Yeager, MSW, LICSW, Laurel Watjen, MA, LMHC,

and Dr. Jessica Yoos, all of whom have extensive training in KAP, as well as the broader field of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy and research.
