Molly Downey

PA-C – Energy Practitioner and Intuitive

Molly has worked in modern medicine as a physician assistant since 2014.  Over the past decade, she moved from primary rural practice to specialty work involving sleep and addiction medicine. Her experience working with underserved populations was both rewarding and difficult. Although grateful for this experience, she began to feel limited in her capacity to truly help patients through the modern medical system.

Simultaneously, Molly began to experience intuitive information during patient visits, feeling, hearing, or seeing information from the multi-sensory universe. This inspired her to learn more about this connection and take multiple courses to hone this incredible skill. After utilizing energy healing to cure herself of a chronic illness that was “incurable” by modern medical standards, she was inspired to offer this healing modality to patients.

She practiced energy healing for several years before she officially opened Etheric Healing in 2022. This practice provides energy healing sessions to patients combined with medical intuition and psychic connection. It is her absolute joy to guide patients on a journey of healing and connection to the universe. Molly continues to practice as a physician assistant serving addiction, sleep, and mental health patients.  She also works through Etheric Healing online or in-person.

  • Give + receive support

Group KAT

Each Group session will last approximately 2 hours, though the total recovery period may vary for each patient. The first 2 sessions will be at the BKC under the guidance of our facilitator. The last 2 Group sessions will be in-home on zoom and also facilitated.

The benefit of in-home KAT is that you may extend the length of the experience beyond the group session. Once we have completed 2 in-clinic sessions and 2 in-home sessions you will be able to create your own set and setting for personal in-home sessions.

We recommend every 2 to 3 weeks. You will also be given playlists, a Guide for In-Home KAT, a Mindfold, and anti-nausea medication.

Integrated Session: Ketamine + Energy Work

This integrative therapeutic session offers a combination of Ketamine therapy paired with energy healing for a unique and transformative experience. This type of session can be utilized by any patient, at any time. Patients that are new to Ketamine therapy as well as those who have had many sessions can equally benefit from this enhanced experience.

Energy work promotes deep relaxation and healthy flow of energy within the body, which allows the patient to more easily receive the healing that is being offered. Our energy practitioner, Molly, who is trained in both modern and alternative medicine, guides you through the experience.

Using her skills in energy medicine and intuition, she will connect with your energetic body and send light and healing energy to where it is needed most. This technique promotes a feeling of deep relaxation and peace within the patient which allows them to connect to their higher self.

From this safe and grounded space, they can begin the inner journey to self-healing.

What to Expect During Your Ketamine-Energy Session

After you schedule an appointment for a ketamine-energy session, Molly will work with you one-on-one to find healing and wholeness. She’ll gently guide you through three simple steps to dip your toe in the water of psychedelic medicine combined with energy work. 

  • Molly will map your energy and receive a sense of both your chakra and aura fields. Sharing your mental health, spiritual, and other struggles with Molly, she’ll compare what you shared with her energy findings, reviewing the correlation between the two. (60 minutes) 
  • The next step is to receive a safe ketamine dosage and relax on the patient beds provided at the clinic. Molly will use light touch to move energy across your body, similar to Reiki. She will connect to the multisensory universe for your guidance and relay any messages (60 minutes) 
  • Session complete. Molly ends with a peaceful grounding technique for reintegration. Experience the joy that comes with living in this present, awakened moment.

Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy

For decades Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) has proven to be a safe and highly effective modality for the relief of treatment-resistant depression, chronic pain, anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, end of life care, suicidality, OCD, and a variety of other mental and physical disorders.

During a KAP session, one of counselors will be present during the session to help guide you through the experience as you engage in the therapeutic process. While under the effects of Ketamine, you and the counselor will explore some of the core wounds and limiting beliefs that hold you back from thriving while traveling the inner psychic space of your own consciousness.

During KAP sessions patients may experience relaxation and states of heightened awareness, mindfulness and self-acceptance, antidepressant effects, out-of-body and dissociative experiences, and potential increased insights about undesired behaviors.

Our counselors facilitate individual and group KAP, prep, and post-integrative sessions. Their work integrates practices of loving awareness, self-love/compassion, and insight meditations with psychological interventions and consciousness sciences.

Nykol Bailey Rice

LCPC- Licensed Professional Counselor

Nykol Bailey Rice is a psychiatric nurse practitioner with over a decade of ketamine and non-ordinary states experience. She completed her second masters at University of Cincinnati in Psychiatric Nursing. She then went on to complete additional training including, Integrative Psychiatry Institute year long therapist training, MAPS (MDMA) provider training, Conscious Encounters & IPI Psilocybin Training and Psychedelics Today.

She also served a full term on the Board of Directors for the American Society of Ketamine Practitioners helping to draft standards and ethical guidelines for therapeutic ketamine administration.

She specializes in two main approaches: Short Term Solution Focused Therapy & Inner Directed Approach.

Short Term Solution Focused:

This approach attempts to maximize actionable items and solutions in a client’s life. Working together we identify small steps and changes that can be implemented during the ketamine series to promote overall wellness. This is a more hands on approach and is a good fit if you like a more involved and directive approach.

Inner Directed:

Recognizing ourselves as the best authority on our own human condition an Inner Directed approach involves less hands on therapeutic guidance by the therapist and a focus on introspective work. The goal is to find, within the non-ordinary state ketamine creates, what your Inner Healer needs. You have the capability to heal yourself and this approach helps you find those insights and make meaning of them in your day to day life. This focuses on you being the expert in you, and is more of a supportive space holding approach.

Nykol

Nykol has been fascinated in non-ordinary states work and altered states of consciousness which led first to a career in anesthesia and then to a second career working with therapeutic ketamine. In her free time Nykol enjoys reading, spending time with her husband and four children and being out in nature.

Garrett Price

LCPC- LICENSED PROFESSIONAL COUNSELOR

My name is Garrett Price and I firmly believe that individuals are much more than the titles or summaries of their chapters. You are not confined to your diagnosis, loss, trauma, or prevailing thoughts, feelings, or actions. Imagine life as a continuously evolving book. Some chapters bring a smile to our faces, while others evoke tears. Yet, it’s the blend of these experiences that shapes our unique stories.

In my specialized work with ketamine-assisted psychotherapy, I employ techniques that champion organic, inside-out healing. This involves reshaping self-perception and reinforcing robust neural connections among the prefrontal cortex, default mode network, limbic system, and brain stem, ensuring an enduring transformation.

A bit about me: I’ve called Idaho home for over four decades, cherishing a joyful 20-year marriage and the blessing of two daughters. My commitment to service was forged in the crucible of personal experiences, including caring for my ailing grandmother in my early 20s and the profound impact of the birth and loss of our cherished son.

Central to my mission is guiding individuals from states of suffering to lives filled with meaning and purpose. This involves honing their minds, strengthening their neurological pathways, teaching emotion regulation, and guiding actions rooted in core values. Together, we can craft a narrative that resonates with strength, growth, and purpose. 

Let’s co- author your next chapter.
