Julane Andries LMFT is a practicing psychotherapist in Marin County, Ca. She worked in acute care medicine before becoming a marriage family therapist. She was the principle co-therapist for the MAPS sponsored, MDMA assisted psychotherapy study for individuals suffering from anxiety with life-threatening illness. She is also co-therapist in the new Phase 3 study using MDMA assisted psychotherapy for severe PTSD in San Francisco.
Julanes work with Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) is unique and is creative to the psychotherapy process using this medicine. She and Phil Wolfson MD, along with others on their team, treat patients with treatment resistant depression, first line depression, anxiety and PTSD. They have created a therapy using the relaxed trance state that Ketamine induces to provide relief of depressive symptoms, insight into individual processing of core issues and transformation. They also work with the transformative state incurred with IM Ketamine.
She and Dr. Wolfson have recently founded a non-profit, Ketamine Research Foundation, whose mission is to provide training for practitioners, collect data to track outcomes with Ketamine therapy, starting a new protocol for using KAP for those diagnosed with a life threatening illness, and those in palliative and hospice care. The foundation will also provide financial assistance for those who cannot afford Ketamine treatment.
