Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy

Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP)

At Cook Counseling and Consulting Inc., we understand that mental health journeys are unique, and for some, traditional therapeutic approaches may not be the sole answer. That’s why we’re pleased to offer Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) as part of our comprehensive mental health services.

What is Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP)?

Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy involves the use of ketamine, a dissociative anesthetic, in conjunction with psychotherapy to enhance the therapeutic process. While we do not prescribe or provide ketamine, we collaborate closely with experienced psychiatrists and prescribers who administer the medication in a controlled and monitored setting.

Important Notice Regarding Ketamine Suitability:

At Cook Counseling and Consulting Inc., it’s essential to emphasize that we do not provide recommendations or assessments regarding the suitability of ketamine for specific clients. While we collaborate closely with experienced psychiatrists and prescribers who administer ketamine in conjunction with psychotherapy, the decision to pursue ketamine treatment rests solely with the prescribing medical professional.

Our role as therapists is to offer comprehensive psychotherapy following ketamine sessions, focusing on integrating and processing experiences to support your therapeutic journey. If you are considering ketamine as part of your mental health care, we strongly encourage you to consult directly with a qualified medical professional who can assess your unique needs and medical history and determine the appropriateness of ketamine for your specific circumstances.

Please be advised that our therapists do not prescribe or provide ketamine, and any inquiries related to its suitability should be directed to a licensed healthcare provider specializing in ketamine administration.

If you have further questions or want to explore how our psychotherapy services can complement your overall mental health care plan, feel free to contact us for a consultation. We are here to support you on your path to well-being.

How Does KAP Work at Cook Counseling and Consulting Inc.?

1. Comprehensive Assessment:

   – Before embarking on KAP, our licensed therapists conduct a thorough assessment to understand your unique needs, goals, and history. This evaluation helps ensure that KAP is a suitable and safe option. The psychiatrist or prescriber will also assess you.

2. Collaboration with Psychiatrists:

   – We work closely with qualified psychiatrists and prescribers who specialize in ketamine administration. These professionals will assess your physical health, determine the appropriate dosage, and oversee the ketamine sessions. These psychiatrists meet with you, assess your physical and mental health, and dose Ketamine, if appropriate. Cook Counseling and Consulting Inc. does not prescribe or administer Ketamine.

3. Psychotherapy Integration:

   – Following a ketamine session, our skilled therapists provide integrated psychotherapy to help you process and make meaning of your experiences. The enhanced state of consciousness induced by ketamine can open new avenues for exploration and self-discovery.

4. Personalized Treatment Plans:

   – Our approach to KAP is highly personalized. We tailor treatment plans to address your specific concerns, incorporating traditional therapeutic modalities alongside the unique benefits offered by KAP.

– Every individual’s journey is unique. Our therapists remain flexible in their approaches, adapting interventions to meet each client’s specific needs and preferences. This flexibility allows for a more personalized and effective therapeutic experience.

-KAP can be provided via telehealth or in person at our office located in Gahanna, Ohio.
