Healing is possible.

Our nervous system communicates through the delicate language of emotion and sensation, expressing itself through our bodies, thoughts, and behaviors.


This primary, pre-verbal language developed long before we acquired the ability to articulate words. And, it's largely automatic. 


If you're grappling with emotional or mental health challenges of any sort, your nervous system is desperately trying to communicate with you.  


This can manifest as intense emotional reactions, feeling numb or frozen, having distressing or intrusive thoughts, or engaging in behaviors that don't align with who you are at your core...  yet, despite wanting to, you are unable change. 


My entire life I've been obsessed with the question: Can people really change?


After 25 years of personal trial and error, extensive traditional education, two decades of meditation study and practice, and with mentors from Berkeley psychiatrists to Brazilian shamans, I found a way.

While talk therapy may offer insights into our past and patterns, it often falls short in creating a real shift in feeling. Unless we engage the source - through a direct conversation with the nervous system - we can't heal the root of misaligned emotions and behaviors.


My approach is simple: make the unconscious conscious.

In our work together, we accesses parts of the brain beyond verbal communication, fostering true healing, increased authenticity, heightened joy, and a more profound sense of fulfillment.

Ketamine Assisted 

Ketamine has the power to catalyze profound change when used in a supportive, therapeutic environment. As a safe, effective and rapid-acting antidepressant, ketamine has demonstrated to do better than standard antidepressants in clinical trials. Because of its mind-altering effects, Dr. Kalstein recommends undergoing your treatment with a trained therapist. 



Traditional Chinese Medicine is a comprehensive and holistic system of medicine that utilizes diet, movement, lifestyle, herbal remedies, and acupuncture to restore balance in the physical and energetic body. In addition to using specialized acupuncture needles, Dr. Kalstein utilizes cupping, moxibustion, and gua sha to move stagnant Qi throughout the body.


Psychedelic Integration

Dr. Kalstein takes a harm reduction, trauma-informed approach to integration and psychedelic work. She incorporates a variety of modalities including acupuncture, somatic work, lifestyle changes, nutritional support, supplementation, and psychotherapy, depending on individual needs. The client, as always, will guide the work.

"As a dietitian and functional medicine practitioner, I am VERY picky about who I will work with. After meeting Dr. Kalstein, I knew she was the person I wanted to have be a part of my own personal health journey. I love referring clients to her whenever I can, she is a healer!
