In addition, Lynn spent 6 years specializing in administering ketamine treatments under the guidance of the President and founding member of the American Society of Ketamine Physicians, Psychotherapists, and Practitioners (ASKP3). Lynn’s interest in innovative mental health treatments was further inspired by the remarkable progress she witnessed in her patients.

Lynn was drawn to New Pathways by their mission to aim for overall mental wellness rather than simply reducing symptoms. Her belief in holistic patient care aligns perfectly with New Pathway’s commitment to providing comprehensive and compassionate healthcare.
