Meet Our Provider Jordan Torri

I consider myself a guide walking along side you in your journey. I believe you are the expert in your life and my role is to help you compassionately understand how your experiences have shaped you into who you are today while also finding ways to navigate current obstacles. I am a firm believer that my clients are stuck, not sick. I support my clients in reclaiming love for themselves by authentically recognizing that the relationship with one’s self and others is significantly affected by stressful life experiences, trauma, and incongruent support. Through my training and personal experience, I have come to understand that psychedelic medicine can often provide a unique opportunity to deeply understand and process the most challenging, confusing, and painful parts of our lives. By integrating the entirety of one’s life in a meaningful way, including insights from psychedelic experiences, my clients are able to free themselves from self-criticism, unhealthy cycles of relating to others, and emotional pain. The work of healing is a journey that we will all walk for the rest of our lives but I hope to help you feel ready to take on this challenge with a new found vision of what is possible.

Therapeutic Approach:

I aim to provide a supportive non-judgmental space for clients who wish to explore psychedelic medicine as a treatment option. I help clients deeply understand and integrate their psychedelic experiences in ways that are tangible in their everyday lives. I primarily practice from a Psychodynamic perspective while integrating other modalities and approaches such as Psychoanalysis, Transpersonal Psychology, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Jungian Analysis, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Internal Family Systems. I always strive to take cultural and societal factors into consideration by taking time to deeply understand an individual’s intersection of identities and their lived experience in the current sociopolitical system.

Biography

I am originally from Chicago, where I completed my doctorate in clinical psychology at Roosevelt University. I moved to the Pacific Northwest a few years ago to complete my internship in Oregon and then found my way north to Washington, where I currently reside. Since relocating to the PNW, I have reclaimed a sense of childlike wonder by reconnecting with my roots in the outdoors, where I spent much of my time growing up. In my free time, you can find me exploring Mother Nature and all that she has to offer, including hiking, rock climbing, skiing, and visiting state and national parks, as well as finding local spots in nature to ground myself in this busy world. I also value discovering new places in the city, such as off-the-beaten-path restaurants and shops that have local character and culture. After a day of working, I find comfort in rewatching The Office for the millionth time (no exaggeration), playing video games, meditating, reading, and spending quality time with my family.

Meet our Medical Team

Rafael Gonzalez-Vizoso, MD

Dr. Gonzalez-Vizoso started his education at Brooklyn College where he earned his BA in chemistry while fulfilling his pre-med requirements, graduating Cum Laude. He completed his medical school education at Harvard Medical School where he also did a year of research in Tropical Medicine.

His internship was done at Newton-Wellesley Hospital, a Tufts University Medical School affiliated program, and his residency in Emergency Medicine at Boston Medical Center, a Boston University Medical School affiliated program.

He has been board certified by the American Board of Emergency Medicine since 1996. He has been practicing Emergency Medicine in multiple settings -anywhere from Level 2 Trauma Centers in urban settings to small to medium rural hospitals- since his graduation from residency in 1994. He is currently the Medical Director for Emergency Services at a critical care access rural hospital in Eastern Washington. He is also the Chairman of the Board of Lightshine, a non profit organization dealing with the care of orphans -specifically in the setting of attachment disorder-, and has traveled extensively on behalf of this organization through Central and South America.

After arriving in Seattle in 1996, he taught Introduction to Clinical Medicine at the University of Washington Medical School as a clinical instructor for 5 years. He also engaged in outcomes research as the medical director of Health Research Associates, Inc. where he co-authored papers, wrote grants and lead studies for 10 years. For the past 18 months, he has been interested in Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy and has undergone all the appropriate training with The Ketamine Training Center, headed by Dr. Phil Wolfson, a leading authority on ketamine assisted psychotherapy (KAP) and has become certified in this treatment modality.

Dr. Gonzalez-Vizoso’s interest in KAP was sparked by the dearth of options available for mental health patients in crisis as well as people with addiction disorders. This induced him to delve into the latest research in the use of psychedelics for mental illnesses. He has used ketamine as an anesthetic in the emergency medicine setting as aid for painful procedures and rapid sequence intubation for over 25 years and is very familiar with the use and safety profile of ketamine. During his training for KAP, Dr. Gonzalez-Vizoso experienced firsthand the amazing effects of ketamine. In association with veteran, ketamine trained psychotherapists, he has become increasingly active in the field of applying psychedelics in the setting of mental illnesses and hopes to continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

Besides his interests in medicine, Dr. Gonzalez-Vizoso holds two black belts in two different styles of martial arts, is an avid free diver and spearfisherman as well as an avid cyclist. He is an amateur historian and has serious spiritual and religious pursuits. He also writes poetry but is too afraid to show it to anyone yet.
