I am a Journey Clinical KAP Provider.

I offer a therapeutic modality called Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP), the use of ketamine as a complement to psychotherapy. I deliver KAP in my practice in partnership with an organization called Journey Clinical, which has a specialized medical team that determines eligibility for KAP, prescribes the ketamine, & supports us in monitoring outcomes.

If you would like to explore the possibility of working with me on KAP, please e-mail me at Request Appointment link above to discuss eligibility and next steps.

lotus100x77Yolanda Yturralde, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I bring my own experiences as a spiritual and emotional being to my work. I am in a loving marriage and we are parents to three children. In many ways my professional life informs my personal life and vice versa. I’m fascinated by the intersection of Transpersonal Psychology and brain science and the impact of attachment psychology on relationships. The latest psychological research of Internal Family Systems as well as Emotionally Focused Therapy has informed me and my work as a Trauma- informed Psychotherapist.  Because I never used drugs recreationally, I’m inspired by the MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies) research and protocols for treating PTSD with psychedelics. I want to help as many people as I can using evidence based practices. I am a graduate of both traditional Masters level education from CSUN and Landmark Education. I plan to grow and develop myself over a lifetime. With two decades of training and development, I offer you a private and personal place where you can be psychologically challenged and nurtured.  I love what I do and where I work. It’s my pleasure to meet with new clients who cannot get to me in Santa Barbara via online Telehealth. Who you can count on me to be is a supportive and safe compassionate listener. I am committed to you healing your pain and having a life you love.
