Psychedelic Therapy for Mental Health
in Wilmington, NC

Jumpstart your healing journey with Ketamine Assisted Therapy and Psychedelic Integration Therapy

Psychedelic compounds, like MDMA and psilocybin, have the potential to make rapid and lasting changes on the quality of our mental health. While most psychedelics are currently illegal under federal law, their therapeutic potential is being reconsidered due to the global mental health crisis. Research is underway to evaluate the effectiveness of combing these psychedelic compounds with therapeutic intervention. In fact, the FDA is currently reviewing a new drug application for MDMA therapy for the treatment of PTSD (submitted December 2023). Currently, ketamine is the only psychedelic medication that is legally used for the treatment of depression and suicidality.

Psychedelic therapy differs from traditional talk therapy as it tackles the root cause of symptoms rather than merely suppressing them. It’s a fresh perspective on our conventional medical model. When these compounds are paired with psychotherapy, it creates a potent combination empowering individuals to heal themselves. Psychedelics bring profound effects on how you perceive the world, your thoughts, and consciousness. They can also enhance a greater sense of connectedness.

Lauren Vilar, LCSW, LCAS, is dedicated to advancing Ketamine-Assisted Therapy (KAP) in Wilmington, NC. As the owner of LMV Counseling, Lauren, a trauma and psychedelic-assisted therapy specialist, has been assisting individuals facing PTSD and challenging mental health issues for several years.
