Meet Our Provider Brandon Zahl
Brandon recognizes we all have a strong drive to experience our fullest sense of vitality and an inner healing intelligence which can help us get there. He is honored to work with clients in the ketamine space – bearing witness to the medicine’s transformative ability to show us a peaceful, expansive sense of Self that is separate from chronic, self-limiting patterns of reductive thinking and emotional pain-body identification. He understands that the rich insights offered during the experience can be profound yet also can quickly fade if not integrated carefully back into our ordinary state of consciousness and daily life. His offers extensive preparation and integration support to maximize the benefits of the ketamine experience. Additionally, his experience with Buddhism, contemporary spirituality and somatic therapy offers a set of tools to help clients weave their experiences and insights from the ketamine experience back into their daily lives to achieve long-lasting change.
Brandon spent over 9 years in the software engineering field, with experience at Microsoft, Amazon and Intel. After realizing his passion for authentic human connection and transformative growth, he left to earn a master’s degree in Mental Health counseling with a concentration in Addiction Studies at Antioch University in Seattle. He has had experience working in a community mental health agency and a private group practice with depression, anxiety, mood disorders, addiction and unresolved trauma. He holds an Associate’s license in Mental Health Counseling and also has the Substance Use Disorder Professional Trainee credential. He sees himself as a playful, genuine, caring and creative person who enjoys time with loved ones, playing and listening to music, spiritual practice, dancing, nature, and photography.
