OVERVIEW OF THE STEPS OF KETAMINE THERAPY Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy involves an initial intake and assessment over 3-4 sessions, conducted in 50-minute or extended sessions. A video call with Dr. Jesus Ramirez (Dr. Zeus) will cover medical history and mental health assessments. Subsequent sessions assess readiness for ketamine sessions lasting 2.5-3 hours, with approximately an hour under ketamine's influence. Dosing considers factors like body weight, prior exposure to ketamine and psychedelics, and sensitivity. Follow-up sessions integrate your experiences on the medicine and support incorporating insights into your daily life, and may prompt additional sessions.
I also work with clients with PTSD, anxiety, depression, or substance abuse issues who may currently have a therapist, and who would like to explore ketamine-assisted therapy as adjunctive work.
