Meet Our Providers



A Place for Hope and Healing

We know how frustating and hopeless it can feel trying to find the best treatment for you or your family members. Many traditional treatments don’t work for everyone leaving many to suffer needlessly. If you are one of the many who haven’t responded to standard treatments, there is hope. Research now shows that low doses of ketamine (IV Ketamine infusions) can rapidly relieve depressive and chronic pain symptoms.

Our mission is to offer cutting edge infusion therapy, empowering individuals toward improved quality of life and well-being through comprehensive and compassionate care. We are a group of professionals united to offer the residents of Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties access to premier Ketamine infusion services.

Sonia Cotto, CRNA, APRN is a 22+ year transplant native of South Florida, growing up in Iowa before moving to the Sunshine State in 1997.

About Julie Clark, BBC

Julie Clark, BBC, is a Board Certified Coach who specializes in Ketamine Treatment Integration. She helps clients bring to light the lessons, messages and insights from their work with the medicine, and together they co-create strategies to develop these gifts into lifelong transformation.

 

Preparation
Conscious work to set intentions and fine-tune goals prior to Ketamine infusion treatments will help to focus the mind and helps ease pre-session jitters.

Integration
It is vital to take advantage of the golden window of opportunity immediately following Ketamine infusion treatments. In this space, fresh perspectives on life/relationships/the world are budding and the corresponding new neural pathways are firing in the brain. Integration takes advantage of this precious window of time to help lock in these changes.

Integration work includes: deciphering messages, insights and inspirations, taking advantage of heightened motivation for change, decoding visions and sensorial experiences and creating a plan of action for continued stimulation of newly-formed neural pathways.

This work solidifies profound insights, perception shifts, new paradigms and patterns so they become firmly ingrained into the psyche. The ultimate gift of this work is the cultivation of a new way of experiencing, perceiving and being in the world.
