Celebrating 2000+ Journey Clinical KAP Providers

May 28, 2024

We are thrilled to announce that we have reached another major milestone in our growth as a community: Journey Clinical has reached 2,000+ member psychotherapists delivering Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy to thousands of patients across the US. Since our founding, we have worked to support the millions of people in the US struggling with mental illness by making transformative, evidence-based treatments more accessible. 

Community is at the core of Journey Clinical: since opening our membership in February 2022, we have been building our platform in close collaboration with our members, who have been doing this crucial work on the ground in their practices, supporting each other along the way through peer consultation groups, mentorship, webinars, meetups, retreats and so much more. 

As our Clinical Advisor Lauren Taus shares, “I’m a big advocate of community in this work, and Journey Clinical provides the opportunity of being in contact with other providers and therapists. I constantly preach not to do this work alone.” One of our New Jersey-based members, Liz Flores Farrell, LCSW, notes: 

Sonia Albin, LPC, PMH-C, who actively organizes events within the Houston psychotherapist community, adds: 

Today, Journey Clinical members:

  • Have delivered thousands of KAP sessions to thousands of patients across the US
  • Span 19 states (NY, NJ, MA, CA, CO, OH, FL, TX, WA, GA, MD, TN, VA, OR, MN, CT, PA, WI, and IL) and growing!
  • Are licensed mental health professionals – the most common licenses held by our members include LCSW, PsyD, LMFT, and LPC.
  • Are both solo practitioners and members of group practices
  • Offer diverse therapeutic approaches and areas of expertise – they deliver KAP as an adjunct to therapy, in many cases combining KAP treatment with other therapeutic techniques or areas of specialty to craft unique offerings within their practices, including mindfulness techniques, EMDR, IFS, Somatic work, and more.

As our community grows, our impact strengthens: an expanded network of Journey Clinical members means that more patients have the ability to experience the transformative benefits of Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy in a safe environment with a therapist they trust. One of our California-based members, LJ Lumpkin III, LMFT shares:

Another California-based member, Yolanda Yturralde, LMFT, LPCC, a psychotherapist with over 25 years of experience, adds:

Our growing membership also means that as more psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy modalities become available in the coming years, there will be a confident, compassionate community of Journey Clinical members around the country ready to deliver these treatments in their communities. Last month, we announced a research collaboration with Compass Pathways to inform the training of healthcare providers and delivery model for COMP360 psilocybin treatment, if approved for treatment-resistant depression. This collaboration with Compass Pathways is closely aligned with our aim to transform the growing mental health crisis in the US by accelerating the mainstream adoption of legal, evidence-based Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy as the standard of care for mental health.

We want to thank our amazing members for trusting us to be their partners on their psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy journey, and to our broader community of advisors, investors and partners for their ongoing support. If you share our passion and vision, and are interested in joining our thriving network, we invite you to join our mission: https://www.journeyclinical.com/psychotherapists/
