Why ketamine therapy?

Ketamine therapy can be effective in the treatment of grief-related depression symptoms by fueling neural growth and promoting novel perspectives and insights — new ways of processing past experiences and difficult emotions

Heal your brain

Enhances Neuroplasticity

By helping the brain produce a special protein called “brain-derived neurotrophic factor” (BDNF), ketamine has been shown to promote the growth of new connections in the brain, which can help interrupt the cycle of persistent sadness and despair that often accompany grief.

Change your mind

Facilitates emotional processing

During a ketamine therapy session, individuals often enter a deep, introspective state that allows for the processing and release of painful emotions associated with grief

Transform your life

Promotes Perspective Shift

Ketamine therapy can induce profound shifts in perspective, which can aid in fostering acceptance and resilience—two crucial components in navigating the process of grief and healing.

Safety information
Important FDA Safety Information

Ketamine is not FDA-approved for the treatment of depression or anxiety. Learn more about off-label uses here.

Side effects of ketamine treatment may include: altered sense of time, anxiety, blurred vision, diminished ability to see/hear/feel, dry mouth, elevated blood pressure or heart rate, elevated intraocular or intracranial pressure, excitability, loss of appetite, mental confusion, nausea/vomiting, nystagmus (rapid eye movements), restlessness, slurred speech, synesthesia (a mingling of the senses).

Do not proceed with ketamine treatment if any of the following apply to you:

  • Allergic to ketamine
  • Symptoms of psychosis or mania
  • Uncontrolled high blood pressure
  • CHF or other serious heart problem
  • Severe breathing problem
  • History of elevated intraocular or intracranial pressure
  • History of hyperthyroidism
  • Other serious medical illness
  • Pregnant, nursing, or trying to become pregnant

Ketamine has been reported to produce issues including, but not limited to, those listed below. However, lasting adverse side-effects are rare when medical protocols are carefully followed.

While ketamine has not been shown to be physically addictive, it has been shown to cause moderate psychological dependency in some recreational users.

  • In rare cases, frequent, heavy users have reported increased frequency of urination, urinary incontinence, pain urinating, passing blood in the urine, or reduced bladder size
  • Ketamine may worsen problems in people with schizophrenia, severe personality disorders, or other serious mental disorders.
  • Users with a personal or family history of psychosis should be cautious using any psychoactive substance, including ketamine, and discuss potential risks with your MindBloom® clinician before proceeding with treatment.
  • The dissociative effects of ketamine may increase patient vulnerability and the risk of accidents.

To promote positive outcomes and ensure safety, follow these ketamine treatment guidelines:

  • Do not operate a vehicle (e.g., car, motorcycle, bicycle) or heavy machinery following treatment until you’ve had a full night of sleep
  • Refrain from taking benzodiazepines or stimulants for 24 hours prior to treatment
  • Continue to take antihypertensive medication as prescribed
  • Avoid hangovers or alcohol intake
  • Refrain from consuming solid foods within 3 hours prior to treatment and liquids within 1 hour prior to treatment
  • Ketamine treatment should never be conducted without a monitor present to ensure your safety

Clinician calls
Guide consultations
Mindbloom sessions
Group Sessions


Preparing to embark

Before your first session, you’ll learn what to expect, tips for navigating the experience, and how to set intentions to cultivate a receptive, expansive mindset.


Take the assessment

Your journey starts with an online candidate assessment for your indications of depression or anxiety to see if you're a fit.


Book your video consult

After signing up, you'll schedule a video consult and psychiatric evaluation with a clinician


Set your intentions

You'll be pointing a giant flashlight into your psyche, and where you point it matter! We'll help you direct your inner exploration through intention setting around what you're hoping to overcome and achieve.

How it Works

How does a ketamine therapy session work?

Am I A Candidate?


Each new client is sent a Bloombox. The Bloombox is designed to compartmentalize your sessions from other areas of your life. It’s a home base for you to return to when preparing, running, and integrating your medicine sessions.

Intention Setting

Setting intentions before each session is a helpful way to focus on specific healing objectives. The Mindbloom app includes intention prompts designed by our clinical team to help you clarify what you’re hoping to achieve.


Before each session, you’ll take your blood pressure, put on your eye mask, and hold the medicine under your tongue. You’ll start to feel the effects of the dose within 10-15 minutes, and the peak experience will last approximately 30-45 minutes.


Each session lasts 1-1.5 hours. Once the session is complete, you’ll be prompted to recap your experience in your journal. Write down any major themes or insights that were present, as memories of the ketamine experience can fade quite quickly.


After taking some time to process the experience , you’ll reunite with your Guide on video. Your guide will help you unpack your experiences, and build a plan to make small changes to your life while your brain is in a fertile state to do so.


Each program includes 6 treatment sessions. It’s important that each program has a ‘closing.’ a time to reflect on where you were when you started, and where you are today. We offer more advanced programs for clients interested in tackling new goals as they arise.
