Layton’s Cedar by Novamind in Utah offers ketamine therapy, among other treatments, to “Heal the ill, better the well.” The former Cedar Psychiatry is now partnered with Toronto-based Novamind to provide both wider access and broader advances in psychedelic medicines. Cedar offers three ketamine-related treatments, ketamine-assisted psychotherapy, ketamine psycholytic psychotherapy, and Spravato esketamine, to treat a wide variety of clients and a wide range of mood conditions. Cedar also offers resources for clinicians interested in their research and techniques to help further innovation in the field of psychedelic psychiatry and looks to address global mental health through the safe and effective use of psychedelic medicines.
The Layton Cedar by Novamind team are experts in a wide range of practices and share a common belief in the need for holistic healing. This wide knowledge base allows for the team to address each client’s needs on a personal basis. John Ellis, an Air Force veteran, specializes in marriage and family therapy, while Susan Smith brings 30 years of nursing practice to the clinic. Alongside social worker Hannah Cross and Psychiatric Provider Ben Saxey, the team offers treatment for numerous problems, including ADHD, PTSD, Depression, and Anxiety.

For Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy, a ketamine injection is administered in office and is supervised by one of the clinic’s trained and compassionate professionals. The hour-long session can be accompanied by music, if preferred. With Ketamine Psycholytic Psychotherapy, an oral dose is taken, also in office.
A safe space is provided for clients to be guided by licensed therapists, trained in ketamine therapy, to achieve positive changes in depressive symptoms. Cedar by Novamind employs Spravato esketamine, an FDA-approved derivative of ketamine that can be covered by health insurance.
As Reid Robison, Chief Medical Officer of Novamind says, “Depression, more common than either cancer or heart disease, is the leading cause of ill health & disability worldwide, yet 50% of people with depression don’t get treatment.”
Cedar by Novamind is committed to getting the right treatments and the right therapists to see their clients to a healthier future, both in mind and body. The clinic also seeks to educate a new generation of behavioural specialists in the benefits of psychedelic medicines, focusing on compassion, innovation, and stewardship.
