Due to the high demand for alternative therapy approaches, I am focusing services to (1.) Intensive Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy, (2.) Consultation around psychedelic and alternative therapies, and (3.) A trauma therapy technique called brainspotting, which is similar to EMDR. I haven't had a chance to thoroughly revise this website, and updates on this rapidly developing approach can be found on Facebook.
I'm here to help you however I can. Talking one-on-one is an excellent way for us to build our relationship and get to the root of whatever's going on. I'm committed to bringing the sum of my experience (and a few lame jokes) into our work together as we collaborate to improve your life.
Families are hard, and sometimes it helps to have an outside perspective. As a peacekeeper and a problem solver, I'm available to help explore whatever family conflicts you might have. If we see each other primarily for individual sessions, we can always incorporate family members however you see fit.
Every intimate relationship poses its own set of challenges. Making an appointment to address those obstacles with a third party can show that you're committed to exploring and growing together. I'd love to meet you and your significant other to see how we can sort through whatever blocks you may be experiencing and amplify the affection that's already there.
There is ample and growing research around the benefit of using psychedelic medicine (MDMA, LSD, Psilocybin, Ayahuasca, Ketamine, etc.) in a controlled, therapeutic setting to treat a wide range of mental health conditions. A major healing component of this approach involves psychological preparation and further processing on the backend.
While I will not give you medicine of any kind, engage in therapy while you are on any illegal substances, or recommend that you pursue this option, I can work with you around harm reduction for substance use or abuse, and I can help you explore any past psychedelic experiences you may have had.
Experiential / Exposure
What better way to learn than by doing? Experiential activities include anything that's more 'in real life' than talking. For example, if you were afraid of pasta but loved the outdoors, we could eat linguini in a park. We can get creative about your specific fears and interests, and how we could engage with them.
Sometimes it can help to have someone around to verbalize your plans and talk through the obstacles in the way. I am always available as a sounding board for how to best reach your goals.

Kenton is a pioneer, and I trust he will practice with care, ethics, integrity, and compassion. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to any of my southern brothers and sisters who are seeking Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy treatment.
