Mindspace wants to make sure that each participant has a good experience in the MBSR, MBCT or MSC program. The orientation session provides a chance for you to see for yourself what the program is about, so that you can make an informed decision. Likewise, if the instructor determines that MBSR, MBCT or MSC may not be the right fit at the right time for you, we’ll make sure to orient you toward the best alternative.
What is ketamine?
Ketamine was initially developed as a surgical anesthetic in the 1970s, and continues to be used today for this purposes in hospitals. It is a well-tolerated, safe medicine from a physiological perspective that also has psychedelic and dissociative effects at certain doses. It also has a rapid antidepressant effect.
What is ketamine-assisted psychotherapy?
Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy is a process whereby the effects of a dose or multiple doses of ketamine are accompanied by psychotherapy. This process generally has two approaches: the first includes sessions whereby a mild, sub-psychedelic dose of ketamine is used as a kind of catalyst for the psychotherapeutic process; that is, it facilitates dialogue between the individual and their therapist. Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy can also refer to a therapeutic process that involves longer immersive sessions whereby a full psychedelic dose of ketamine is administered for the purposes of a more internal, visionary experience. These sessions are typically accompanied by a number of preparatory and integration sessions.
Are your services covered by my insurance?

What are your hours? Can I see you before or after work?
Mindspace therapists do their best to accommodate their clients’ schedules. Appointments are typically during regular business hours and in the early evening (after work or school).
