Psychedelic Assisted Therapy
A Promising New Option
For adults seeking relief from persistent and severe symptoms, psychedelic-assisted therapy is poised to offer a powerful alternative backed by the scientific community. These medicines are slowly being integrated into our culture but have been utilized by other civilizations for thousands of years. It is my belief that they require careful stewardship as this process unfolds to ensure that they can be effectively and legally administered to relieve suffering and expand our understanding.
Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP)
Partnered with Journey Clinical
My practice has expanded to include KAP in partnership with Journey Clinical. Ketamine is currently the only legal psychedelic substance that can be integrated into a therapeutic context in Ohio. It is extremely well-known and safe and used regularly as a dissociative anesthetic in hospitals. In lower doses, it can be integrated with psychotherapy and produces considerable benefits to clients suffering from a variety of disorders including Treatment Resistant Depression and Anxiety and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Consciousness is quite a trip.
Just sitting here you can imagine our challenge to comprehend it.
Looking outward it seems impossibly fast and big.
You are on a spinning ecosystem that is orbiting a nuclear furnace in a galaxy with 200 billion stars (or so) that is moving through a universe of 2 trillion galaxies (or so).
Your planet is moving at 67,000 miles per hour around the Sun that is traveling at 560,000 miles per hour around the Milky Way galaxy which is flying at 1.3 million miles an hour through the Universe.
Looking within it seems impossibly small.
Your body contains about 32 trillion cells, 1,344 trillion molecules and 6 octillion atoms.
Every atom was forged in the nuclear furnace of a dying star.
Every cell contains DNA which is about 5 atoms wide and about 6 feet long. Placed end to end your DNA is about 67 billion miles long.
Your brain has about 100 billion neurons with about 100 trillion synaptic connections.
It’s a lot to take in. Here’s what I’ve noticed so far.
After we are born, we grow in our ability to notice our bodies, our surroundings, each other, and our dilemma. Physically, we can feel separate and autonomous. We can grapple with the meaning of our existence and our role. Belief systems and communities can help to guide, ground, and organize our understanding and way forward. They can also discourage, limit, and punish.
But...whatever this is, I am a part of it and as complex as it. I am trying to lovingly embrace the chance to be here and the uncertainty of it. I have found that love seems to be the natural state of being but is challenged by the experience of disconnection and separateness. However, by connecting compassionately to ourselves, our body, and our story, we can experience and share in community... the beauty of being here.
