Getting Started with ketamine therapy

Before getting started, we want to make sure we have answered all your questions. We highly recommend looking through our website, especially our FAQ page, but please don’t hesitate to give us a call, and Eli will be able to answer most of your questions right away, any time Wednesday through Sunday, from 8:00 AM until 5:30 PM : 425‑835‑2363

Intake Call

After we have answered your questions and you are ready to move forward, the first step is to schedule a free intake phone call. During the intake call, Liana will ask you a series of questions about your health history to make sure there are no safety issues, as well as give you a chance to ask any specific, clinical questions we were not able to answer earlier. While ketamine therapy is generally considered safe for most people, there are a few health conditions that would make ketamine infusions contraindicated. There are also a small number of medications that can interfere with the benefits of ketamine, so it’s important to know what medications you are taking to ensure the best chance of the treatment working. Liana is an anesthesia provider with decades of experience, and she will be the person administering your infusions.


Once Liana has determined that you are a good candidate for ketamine therapy, we will send you emails with links to fill out our intake forms and a release of information form online. As soon as you have completed the release of information form, we will contact your provider’s office to request records and/or diagnosis information on your behalf. As a treatment center, we do not make diagnoses, so we need something showing that you have been diagnosed with one or more of the conditions that we treat.

If you would rather request diagnosis information directly from your provider, you can ask them to fill out this form (it’s a fillable PDF), and email or fax it to us. Be sure to let them know that our email is HIPAA‑compliant.

If you already have medical records that show your specific diagnoses and/or diagnosis codes, you can just email those to us as attachments ( ). You may also be able to download records from your patient portal (eg. MyChart). Please be sure to “print to file” and email us the PDF as an attachment (no screenshots please).


When we have received your documentation of a diagnosis and the intake forms have been completed, we can get you scheduled for your initial loading dose. For most conditions we treat (including all mental health conditions), you will typically need a series of six infusions over the course of four weeks, with boosters (a single infusion) generally necessary every 1–⁠3 months thereafter. Certain pain conditions require other protocols, which Liana will discuss with you during your intake call.


After you have completed your initial loading dose, you will typically need boosters to maintain the relief from symptoms. Everyone’s brain chemistry is different, so while most patients need boosters every 1–⁠2 months, we do have a number of patients who are able to go as long as 3 months without a recurrence of symptoms. We usually recommend scheduling your first booster four weeks after you finish your loading dose. If you still feel good by the time you come in for your first booster, you can then increase the intervals between subsequent boosters (eg. 6-wks, 8-wks, etc.). If, at some point you experience a recurrence of symptoms before you come in for your next booster, then you know to decrease the interval between boosters. You will fill out periodic self-report surveys to help track your progress. Scheduling boosters is easy via phone, text, or email.
