What is Psychedelic Assisted Therapy?

Psychedelic therapy (also known as psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy) is a type of mental health treatment in which a psychedelic drug is taken as part of the treatment process. The use of psychedelics is usually combined with talk therapy in psychedelic therapy. While this may sound surprising to many, psychedelics have been used for both therapeutic and spiritual reasons in many indigenous cultures and countries. However, psychedelic therapy is generally new to the world of Western psychiatry.

In both clinical and nonclinical settings, several kinds of mind-altering psychedelic drugs are currently being administered and researched for therapeutic purposes. Examples of psychedelic drugs that are naturally derived from plants in nature include psilocybin (mushrooms), DMT, peyote, ayahuasca, and ibogaine. Some examples of human-made chemical compounds of psychedelics include ketamine, MDMA, and LSD.

Finding peace and healing for PTSD, depression, anxiety, addiction, and more.

Therapy in Las Vegas with psilocybin, MDMA & ketamine

Many people have tried everything to overcome depression, PTSD, or anxeity. And now, there is growing research that psychedelic therapy can help!

According to a 2016 study a single dose of psilocybin significantly reduced symptoms of depression and anxiety in patients with life-threatening cancer.

There is some evidence that psychedelics may be useful in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder. (PTSD). According to a 2019 study published in The Lancet Psychiatry, a combination of MDMA and psychotherapy was effective in reducing PTSD symptoms in a group of military veterans and first responders. These findings are promising for the future of treating trauma and doing trauma work as a whole.

“It is no surprise that psychedelics, with their activation of deeply healing intelligent capacities, seem to spontaneously engender internal and interpersonal experiences of love.”

Research, approval, and the future of psychedelic therapy

Many companies are currently seeking approval from the Food and Drug Administration for psychedelic-assisted therapies. If approved, this therapy could become more widely available to patients seeking mental health treatment.

Researchers are also using neuro-imaging instruments like PET scans and fMRI to get a glimpse into how psychedelics affect the brain. To do this, biomarkers in the brain are identified and used to predict one’s treatment response. 

Disclaimer: These recent findings are definitely exciting, but more research is needed to fully understand the benefits and risks of psychedelic therapy for mental health. Due to the risky nature of the treatment, psychedelic therapy should only be facilitated under the guidance of a trained professional in a safe and controlled environment.

Chrissy lawler therapist in las vegas

Hi, I’m Christine Lawler.

I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and I’ve been practicing therapy for almost 13 years. I have an amazing husband who I’ve been married to for 12 years, and we’ve got four darling little girls.

I’m a big believer that therapist fit is really important. Too many people give up on counseling in general because they had a poor fit with a therapist and decided counseling didn’t work. Counseling DOES work, but the therapist/client match-up is important. You want to work with someone whose personality you can jive with, and you need to believe that your therapist can actually help you. So, I’m going to tell you a little bit about myself and what sets me apart, and you can decide if I sound like the right fit for you:

I graduated from Brigham Young University, the #1 Marriage and Family Therapy program in the country. I’m not saying this to brag, only to confidently report that my education was top notch. We were constantly taught how important it is to be a fantastic therapist, because unfortunately, unskilled therapists can do more harm than good and often clients have no way of discerning. I was also taught that having a good foundational background is important, but what I do after graduation to hone my skills is what will set me apart. Because of this, I have thrown myself into reading and taking continuing education courses from the leaders in the field. I’m a critical consumer of information and I make sure that everything I do is grounded in theory.

Hi, I’m Leslie Frederick.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have long had a passion for helping and serving others.

I began my career as a social worker for a local hospice.  I found great purpose in helping families navigate the unpredictable twists and turns that undoubtedly come along with the end of life for their loved ones.  After many years in hospice, I transitioned to a medical social work position in a hospital, which then led me to a Clinical Social Work Intern position in an inpatient psych hospital.  During this time, I enjoyed working with a range of individuals and families.  The vast array of cases I encountered in the hospital allowed me to gain the experience and skills needed to serve a multitude of clients.  I enjoy working with clients of all ages and believe in meeting a client where they are at in order to tailor treatment to meet their individualized needs and work towards their specific goals.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Northern Arizona University and a Masters in Social Work from UNLV. I am originally from Northwest Indiana and have lived in Las Vegas for over ten years with my husband and our three children. We love living out west and enjoy spending time traveling and exploring our neighboring states.
