Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy 

Research on low-dose ketamine since the early 2000s supports its effectiveness, offering a new, fast-acting, and low side-effect medication, particularly hopeful for treatment-resistant depression.


Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) offers a integrative psychotherapeutic approach that can rapidly improve various mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, and suicidality. Compatible with most psychiatric medicines, KAP creates powerful and sustained healing when traditional interventions fail. Unlike the IV medical model, KAP sessions, conducted with a therapist and physician, last between two and three hours. The therapy involves integrative support before, during and after the medicine sessions.


Ketamine is a legal and safe medicine, acts as a rapid antidepressant with mood-enhancing effects, stimulating synaptic connections and enhancing overall neuroplasticity. Administered through sublingual lozenges, ketamine's clinical safety supports its use in psychotherapeutic settings.


Leveraging ketamine as a catalyst to deep psychotherapic work, KAP significantly improves clinical outcomes, particularly for those with severe symptom burdens.

Trauma Informed Psychotherapy

Dr. Kalstein's approach is client-centered, evidence-based and trauma informed. She believes the therapist and client are partners in healing and makes an effort to reduce the power dynamic in a traditional Western therapy setting wherein the therapist "analyzes" or knows better than the client.


Instead, Dr. Kalstein adheres to the theory that the mind and body contain self-healing mechanisms and through education, appropriate techniques and a supportive environment, the client can heal.

 The ultimate goal is to help clients gain insight and skills necessary to integrate their past and create the most authentic vision for their futures.


Dr. Kalstein's approach to therapy is influenced by Attachment Theory, Internal Family Systems, Somatic Experiencing, Relational Therapy, NARM, EMDR and DBT.  


Acupuncture has been shown to be beneficial for a variety of health conditions, including pain conditions, insomnia, stress, fertility, and many others. 


Traditional Chinese Medicine is an ancient and comprehensive holistic system that utilizes diet, movement, lifestyle, herbs, and acupuncture to restore balance in the physical and energetic body. 

Dr. Kalstein is a licensed acupuncturist in Tennessee.
