Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP)
What is Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP)?
Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy is a deep psychotherapeutic process that can produce rapid improvement for a number of conditions, including depression, anxiety, suicidality, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder and more. Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy can be supportive for end of life care.
Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy is compatible with most other psychiatric medicines, and it can create powerful, sustained healing when all other traditional interventions fail.
Unlike the IV medical model, sessions are conducted with the support of a therapist. Sessions that include medicine last 3 hours, and the experience is focused on therapy.
We support your process throughout with integrative sessions, email and phone contact. If working with a individual therapist already, I will collaborate with them to create a team around your treatment.
Expenses tend to be more with Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy than with the IV method. The cost of treatment relates to the thoroughness of our work and the long duration of the sessions--with a practitioner attending to you for the entirety of the session.
We can provide 'Superbills' directly to you so that you can receive potential reimbursement from your insurance company.
Contact me to set up an appointment with my team of practitioners for a medical consultation/receiving a prescription for ketamine ready to dissolve tablets or troches.
While waiting 1-2 weeks for the medication to arrive by mail to your house, we will begin building safety and rapport by having at least 3 or more therapy sessions prior to the ketamine medicine session.
We will then begin the 3 hour medicine session by setting an intention, adding ritual/ceremony, and setting up a warm and comfortable environment. Sessions can take place in office or in the convenience of your home.
We will follow up in 48-72 hours for an integration session that will help to organize the session and express details to piece together your experience. Integration is what helps to make lasting effects that carry over into your everyday life.
Medicine sessions will occur weekly to help create the momentum for change. Scientific literature suggests 4-6 sessions for sustained change and benefits.
Book a consultation call with me. Once we begin our work, we decide together where you get to go and grow, then we come up with a treatment plan for a clear path forward.
How Does it Work?
How Often Are Sessions?
Your experience in therapy is uniquely yours. You may come in for coaching on certain life goals. You might come in looking for deeper, ongoing work to treat primary wounds that create anxiety, depression or trauma. With all new clients, I prefer weekly sessions. Any less frequently and it’s hard to build the necessary momentum for sustained change. Of course, we can create a customized plan to support your schedule if necessary.
Do You Take Insurance?
I do not accept insurance, but I provide you with a weekly statement (“superbill”) to submit to your insurance company for potential reimbursement. Please note that they generally only cover up to an hour session.
What is the cost breakdown for KAP treatment?
The cost of regular sessions are $160/ 60 minutes. Medical consultation is $250 and the prescription is $85. The medicine session is $160 x3 hours for a total of $480. Integration sessions follow the hourly fee of $160/60 minutes. Sliding scale is offered for those in need and is taken on a case by case basis.
How Quickly Can I See Results?
Results vary for each individual person. Research shows that the therapeutic alliance is one of the most essential indicators of successful outcomes in therapy. Therapy—like life—is a journey and a process. Come weekly, try to be open and curious as you do the work of journeying home to yourself.
Where do sessions take place?
I work both in office in Golden, CO at 1204 Washington Ave Golden, CO 80401 and I also do medicine sessions in the comfort and convenience of your home. This is up to you and will be discussed in our intial session together.
What is your cancellation policy?
I require 48 hour notice or the full fee will be charged. As sessions can be 3 hours in length, timely notice is essential to the practice. Thanks so much for your understanding!
