Located in Santa Monica, the Los Angeles Field Trip Health Clinic employs a team of trained experts in both traditional psychiatric treatments and cutting-edge psychedelic medicines. With spaces intentionally-designed to reflect the peace and tranquility of nature, Field Trip Los Angeles offers low-dose ketamine therapy for a number of mood disorders. Clients seeking help outside of the mainstream, or those whose disorders have shown resistance to mainstream treatments, will find a caring and holistic approach to healing at Field Trip Health.
For those seeking information on psychedelic medicines, Field Trip Los Angeles offers a variety of online resources. Once accepted for treatment, psychedelic sessions, often lasting between 2-3 hours, are accompanied by psychotherapy integration sessions, in which a therapist assists the client in understanding the psychedelic experience.
Field Trip Los Angeles brings together experts in a variety of fields, enabling the team to create personal and individualized recovery plans for each client. Along with training in the safe use of psychedelic medicines, members of the team have also worked extensively with marginalized communities, both in the United States and abroad. Psychotherapist Karina Sergi has spent time studying indigenous healing practices in Latin America, while naturopath Dr. Katelyn Kalstein has advanced degrees in both Naturopathic Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine. In keeping with their non-mainstream approach, the team focuses not only on medication, but also mind, body, and spirit, to provide a holistic healing experience for each client.
Most treatments run approximately 3-4 weeks, though treatment length will depend on the complexity of the client’s needs. Beginning with a preparatory session, in which therapist and client will map out goals for the treatment, the Field Trip Health treatment then moves on to a psychedelic session, starting off with low doses and increasing only if assessment calls for higher doses.
Immediately following the psychedelic session, and then again in an integration session, clients will sit with a therapist and explore the experience, sorting out how to utilize what has been discovered in the psychedelic session in order to facilitate healing. Psychedelic and integration sessions are then repeated until both client and therapist are satisfied with the outcome.
Field Trip Health Los Angeles offers ketamine therapy for those who have not seen desired benefits from mainstream medical practices. While a safe and evidence-based practice, psychedelic therapy does involve some risks to clients with pre-existing conditions. As such, based on an assessment of your health history, the Field Trip team will help clients decide whether or not ketamine therapy is useful and safe for their particular circumstances. By combining cutting-edge and traditional psychotheraputic practices, the Field Trip team offers hope to those suffering from mental health issues that are resistant to mainstream treatments.
