Access AIP's network of trained therapists offering KAP in North Carolina

Watershed Healing Collective (WHC) is a branch of Asheville Integrative Psychiatry (AIP) that provides access to a network of therapists across North Carolina who offer Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP).  All of the therapists in our network have completed formal training in Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy through one of our verified training programs and are aligned with AIP's focus on nature connection and integration as a central component of personal healing and growth. Our mission is to make KAP more accessible across the state, while ensuring that all Watershed Healing Collective therapists uphold the highest standards of safety and therapeutic care.

Find a KAP Therapist in Our Network Closest to You

If you're interested in working with a KAP Therapist in our Watershed Healing Collective Network, or if a Therapist in our network has already referred you, please follow these steps:

1. Complete the Self-Assessment Tool to see if you would be a good fit for KAP with a therapist in the Watershed Healing Collective. This tool evaluates your medical history to determine safety. All information collected is kept confidential.



2. If you are a good fit, please reach out to us through our contact page or by giving us a call to schedule your initial medical evaluation through Asheville Integrative Psychiatry.

3. After your medical screening, please reach out directly to a therapist in our network (or reach back out to your referring therapist) using the directory above to schedule a consultation. Once you and your chosen therapist have decided to work together, you'll schedule your first session and future sessions directly with them.

What to Expect

Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy with a therapist through our network includes:

  • A comprehensive medical evaluation from a medical professional at Asheville Integrative Psychiatry to ensure suitability for KAP and safety

  • Preliminary counseling sessions to achieve familiarity with your chosen therapist and discuss your unique needs and goals prior to treatment​

  • Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy sessions with your chosen therapist. The number of KAP sessions will be determined by you and your therapist after your evaluation

  • Follow up integration therapy sessions with your chosen therapist


The screening and medical evaluation through Asheville Integrative Psychiatry costs $300.  Most clients will require at least one follow-up medical appointment (30 minutes, $200 cost) with AIP to assess response to the medication and adjust dosing if necessary. The cost for therapist hours will vary according to the rates set by the therapist you choose to work with. Please reach out to the therapist you're interested in working with for their exact rates.
