Welcome to the Watershed Healing Collective!
Watershed Healing Collective (WHC), a branch of Asheville Integrative Psychiatry, is a collaborative space for therapists seeking to unlock the transformative potential of Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy for their clients. We currently offer Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) as a powerful modality you can integrate into your practice, and in the future, we eagerly anticipate expanding to embrace other psychedelic medicines as they become legally available. Adding KAP to your toolkit can be a profound decision, one that ripples outward to empower your clients to reach new levels of healing and growth. We understand the significance of this journey, and we're here to support you every step of the way, from your initial exploration to confident integration into your practice.
Watershed Healing Collective’s mission is to lead the charge in advancing accessible psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy for mental health treatment by widening the scope of availability for Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) in North Carolina while also establishing and upholding a standard or care for our patients and our community. Our commitment is rooted in the belief that every individual struggling with mental health challenges deserves the opportunity for healing and transformation with this remarkably effective therapeutic modality.
