Ketamine assisted psychotherapy is a therapy modality which involves the utilization of ketamine, a legal medication, to lower the inner defenses to benefit the client. It can provide a faster opportunity for those interested, in diving deeper into their own psyche, defenses and mind. 

Many people who have struggled with anxiety, depression, PTSD and grief have found great support and assistance with the utilization of Ketamine. Studies have shown that the use of ketamine can reduce mental health symptoms for longer periods of time. For more details about KAP, please click here.

Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy

Compassion Fatigue, Burnout, Moral Injury & Moral Distress

Are you a professional who is frequently working in the community, health care or public service? 


Do you feel like you're struggling to find your compassion for those around you, or even yourself?

Because we have a culture and society of expectation and hustle, we have also lost some of the professional compassion and understanding for what it's like to be a human in this life while also showing up for others. 

Historically, this has been referred to as burnout. New research and literature distinguishes between burnout, compassion fatigue, moral injury and moral distress. 

The LIW Collaborative believes that understanding what leads to compassion fatigue, moral injury, distress, and burnout is vital in maintaining our whole health. This includes our careers, our lives and our communities.  

With a certification in Compassion Fatigue as well as training in Critical Incident Stress Management, you don't have to face the impact of your work alone. 

As a sought after public speaker, Whitney Read, LCSW-R is available for speaking engagements, professional health care support, supervision and consultation. 

She has provided dozens of CEU presentations and speaking engagements for hospitals, social work staff and community organizations. She has contributed to multiple articles including in The Washington Post.
