Sybil Ottenstein, LMHC
At Brooklyn Psychedelic Therapy, we offer both individual and couples somatic psychotherapy and Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) for people who want healing and growth but have struggled to achieve the sustainable peace they seek. We combine the transformational effects of expanded states of consciousness with the safety and trust of the therapeutic relationship. Following Ketamine treatment, many say that one round (4-8 sessions) of KAP equates to years of talk therapy alone.
My work is gentle, slow and intention-focused. I value the creation of a safe and trusting relationship above all else. As a somatic therapist, I center the wisdom of your body to guide us to your deepest emotions and truest Self. I am trained in a number of somatic and mindfulness based modalities including The Hakomi Method, Somatic Experiencing and IFS. My therapeutic style is honest, nurturing, fierce and at times, playful. I honor your resilience, hold your darkness with reverence, and celebrate progress and possibility with you. I bring my whole self into the room — I’ll be laughing with you and crying with you as we work together to navigate whatever arises.
I emphasize creating a safe therapeutic relationship above all else. I suggest having between 4-8 preparatory sessions with each client before we begin Ketamine sessions. This gives us time to get to know each other, and build a safe and trusting rapport. Many find that the more comfortable the therapeutic container, the deeper the work can go.
