Synergistic Protocols


Psychedelic Therapy



Our interventions have synergistic effects so our protocols can be combined. Metabolic health affects mood, nutrition affects inflammation, inflammation affects mental health. 

Integrative means a "both/and" philosophy that is more fluid and flexible.  Yes, medications  might be helpful for you but we might consider and utilize other treatment options.  We care about root causes and truly effective solutions, aligned with your goals and values.

We're proud to be the first clinic in Iowa to offer psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy with ketamine- a legal, effective, and profound catalyst for inner transformation. We are passionate about safely and thoughtfully expanding psychedelic assisted psychotherapy to those living in Iowa, Wisconsin, and Minnesota as the research continues to evolve.


Individuals across the states of Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin (in tiny towns and big cities) are patients here at Driftless Integrative Psychiatry, meeting by video or in person.  We are located in the heart of the Driftless Area, next to the Mississippi River.  Our clinic is within a 3 hour drive of the Twin Cities, Madison, Iowa City, Waterloo, Rochester, Cedar Falls and within a 4 hour drive of Milwaukee and Des Moines. We are available by video and in person.
