“As an ER doc for almost 20 years, I have given ketamine for procedural sedation thousands of times, and taken care of many people suffering with depression, suicidality and trauma. Working with ketamine specifically to treat mental health has been one of the most fascinating and rewarding parts of my career thus far. I am particularly interested in helping people integrate meditation and movement into their daily practice as part of the ketamine journey.”
