Treatment Philosophy

"What rewards me as a therapist and sitter is the deep satisfaction of knowing that I have made someone better. I tell all my clients on day one: “my best day of therapy with you is when you tell me you don’t need me anymore”. I care deeply about “the cure”. Therapy should never be forever. If I am doing my job, you come in, you get better, you leave, and you never come back. Just like in the medical field: you come in with a broken bone, we set it, and then you heal. It’s not painless, but you don’t have a gimpy leg for the rest of your life. You move with your life after a few months and barely think about it. 

As someone whose passion is closing treatment resistant cases, I am always searching for the most effective treatments that work quickly and with as little pain to the patient. In my searching, I started to come across research with otherworldly results – real cure for treatment resistant depression, trauma, and other disorders that I had so struggled to treat with conventional means. I had no background with psychedelics, but as a scientist I couldn’t refute the data. Now, trained by the foremost experts in the field, I am bringing the hope of fast, durable relief to those I could not “cure” in the past." May

"Ketamine therapy offers a unique opportunity to process trauma, experience relief from depressive symptoms, and explore authentic aspects of self. Through expanding consciousness and creating space from visceral experiences, ketamine allows for new perspectives and promotes habit change and self growth through neuroplasticity. Reese prescribes ketamine for self-administration via sublingual lozenge, allowing clients to experience healing benefits in their home environments in a cost-effective manner. They believe that novel pharmacological interventions should not be limited to those with financial resources and strive to expand access for marginalized populations. In addition, they specialize in working with autistic folks, utilizing ketamine to explore sensory differences and practice un-masking to identify authentic self." Reese
