Therapy Q & A

What is therapy?

Therapy is a type of mental health treatment. During therapy, you meet with a professional to talk openly about your problems, feelings, and behaviors. 

Your therapist then provides guidance, support, and feedback to help you change unhealthy habits and behaviors, resolve painful feelings, and improve personal and professional relationships. 

Set & Setting provides therapy that focuses on making you more self-aware so you can change your mindset to improve how you think, feel, and behave. Depending on your needs, they may combine your therapy with ketamine treatment.

Set & Setting is the only dedicated ketamine-assisted psychotherapy clinic in the Portland area. 

Who benefits from therapy?

Anyone struggling with painful feelings, unhealthy thoughts, or self-destructive behavior can benefit from therapy. Set & Setting provides comprehensive care for many mental health conditions, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Eating disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Addiction

You may also benefit from therapy at Set & Setting if you have distressing symptoms from unresolved trauma, you’re struggling to make major life decisions, or you need help managing relationship problems. 

What can I expect during therapy?

Set & Setting takes a personalized approach to care. The specifics of your therapy depend on your needs and goals. Before recommending any treatment, you first undergo a medical screening and evaluation.

For your medical screening, you meet with the medical prescriber at Set & Setting. They review your medical and mental health history, perform a physical, and talk to you about your treatment options. 

After your medical screening, you meet with your therapist, who conducts a thorough evaluation, assessing your emotional, mental, and cognitive health. Your therapist also spends time talking to you about your therapy goals and expectations. 

Then, your therapist creates your therapy treatment plan, which may include:

  • One-on-one counseling
  • Intention setting
  • Mindset training
  • Self-awareness activities
  • Psychedelic medicine

You can expect regular therapy sessions until you meet your goals. Then, you follow up with your therapist periodically so they can monitor your health and well-being.

For patients looking for a more intensive form of therapy, Set & Setting offers a psychedelic retreat, which includes intention setting, self-awareness training, pre-treatment mindset training, ketamine administration, and post-treatment therapy.
