Psychedelic
Services

Ketamine

Ketamine’s rapid onset dissociative effects facilitate introspection and emotional processing. Ketamine has been shown to be effective in addressing mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, grief, suicidal ideation, PTSD, and addiction.

Psilocybin

After stabilization, psilocybin sessions can be utilized to promote deeper introspection and reflection, leading to enhanced self-awareness.
Psilocybin has been shown to improve symptoms of depression, anxiety, grief, PTSD, and addiction. Also used for end-of-life care.

MDMA

MDMA is a relational medicine that can create a sense of emotional safety, openness, trust, and empathy, aiding individuals to address and process traumatic and deeply rooted emotional issues, particularly those related to C-PTSD and PTSD.

What Our
Clients
Are Saying

 

The staff: the perspective/coaching they offered, benefits and relaxation achieved today was 5 stars but the missing last star is just due to the space itself. The space was a little too office-like and could use a window, with maybe a few more live/real plants to give it a more Zen, relaxing, and warm nature feel. Other than the space it was great and is already making many positive shifts in my life.
Thank you, team!!.

The staff are awesome at helping you through a Ketamine high. I felt very safe and comfortable.
They spend time talking to you before and after the treatment.
I highly recommend using them if you are looking at doing a Ketamine treatment.

Kandy

The staff were wonderful at helping me to feel comfortable and seen. The pumpkin that was made for me is a precious reminder of my experience and I feel blessed to have something made especially for me. The session was very enlightening and expansive.
It showed me that it is okay and safe to be myself and also brought forward things that I still need to process and release. It was an amazing experience all around and I look forward to my next session. Thank you so much. 💜.

Sara

The staff is deeply intuitive and empathic.
They provide great guidance and insights throughout the process while still allowing it to progress organically.
I cannot recommend them highly enough. I felt safe, heard, understood, and accepted throughout.

Valerie

I cannot say enough good things about Renae and Mark. I have had three Ketamine treatments with them (and booked for another soon). I had been on medication for over 15 years, tried many methods to treat mental health illness, and had little hope of finding something to help me from brutal and dark depression. After three treatments, I felt like a new person! I had hope, happiness, and joy at levels I had never known.
I will forever be thankful to have found this treatment therapy.

Laura

I had the best experience with Mark. From the first minute we met, I immediately felt comfortable, calm, and relaxed. He is super supportive, informative, and authentic. He has a vast background in various aspects of psychology. I immediately booked a follow-up appointment with him.
Thanks, Mark. Also, must give big props to Dr. Krista Leicht and Renae Leicht.
Both have kept constant contact and friendly communication throughout my visits.

Matthew

I’ve been struggling for a long time; I’ve tried all kinds of therapy and treatments; some helped, but I wasn’t dealing with the trauma, which created a vicious cycle.
The Ketamine treatment has helped in a way I didn’t think possible. After one session, my anxiety decreased by 60%; after my 2nd session, I feel normal again, and I’m tackling things that before treatment I was not able to. The staff are so kind and funny and there is no judgement.
I highly recommend them if you’re struggling.

Trish

Mark and Renae feel to be genuine, sweet, and kind people.
They are gentle and insightful with their coaching.
I’ve met with them once, and am looking forward to my next session.
