Here at KPG we have relationships with medical specialists and work with them to assist with improving sleep (sleep clinics), addressing pain (pain clinics), and assisting in pre-and post-therapeutic care for client’s choosing to go to local clinics for the use of psychedelics in their healing journey. Dr. Stuart coordinates with these fellow professionals in a multidisciplinary approach to address client needs, assisting with chronic and severe conditions. She also works within a client’s preferred spiritual context, to support higher order satisfaction in achieving their therapeutic goals.
