Ketamine-Assisted Therapy

Through our partnership with The Sitting Room and NeuroMed, Insight Psychological is excited to offer Ketamine-Assisted Therapy to our clients!

What is Ketamine Assisted Therapy?

Ketamine-Assisted Therapy involves the carefully monitored administration of ketamine, a dissociative anesthetic, in conjunction with psychotherapy sessions. This innovative treatment has shown remarkable efficacy in helping clients who are seeking help with their mental health to facilitate introspection and emotional processing. The combination of Ketamine followed by integrative therapy has proven to rapidly alleviate symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD, grief, addiction, and mood disorders when traditional treatments have fallen short.

Unlike traditional antidepressants that may take weeks to alleviate symptoms, clients who take Ketamine can experience significant improvements in mood and depressive symptoms within hours. You will know after your first session if Ketamine is the right fit for your needs.

When used in a controlled setting such as at The Sitting Room, Ketamine is safe and effective. Clients interested in Ketamine-Assisted Therapy are first assessed and screened by The Sitting Room’s Medical Director, Dr. Krista Leicht, to ensure that it is suitable for you.

We recognize that each individual’s journey to mental wellness is unique. That’s why The Sitting Room tailors sessions to address your specific needs and goals, ensuring a personalized treatment plan that works for you. You are not required to sign up for packages or book more than one session at The Sitting Room at a time. We encourage clients to try one session if it is deemed suitable for your needs based on the assessment and screening done by Dr. Leicht.

While some clients find relief after only one session, others may require between three to six sessions before moving to a maintenance schedule on an as needed basis.

The Sitting Room DOES NOT USE needles, injections, or nasal sprays to administer the medicine. Ketamine is administered in a tablet that dissolves under the tongue. Clients are closely monitored by highly trained practitioners throughout the entire session.

Ketamine therapy is often most effective when paired with psychological therapy therefore we always recommend booking in with one of our therapists before and after your session.
