From Carrie

"This place is AMAZING!! I had a very traumatic situation happen and it threw me into a deep depression with severe anxiety. I wasn't sleeping, barely eating and definitely not leaving the house. Then, Dr. Chilcott recommended TMS and Ketamine.

I am a COMPLETELY changed woman. I'm more involved with my family, friends and I am not confined to my house anymore. She is the most wonderful person I've ever met. She saved me!!! And, the whole staff is just so caring and supportive. I would give 100 ⭐️'s if I could!!! Thank you, Be The Change in Mental Health ♥️"

From Jacqueline

"My experience with BTC exceeded my expectations in every aspect! The BTC retreat provided a safe space for self-discovery, facilitated meaningful connections, and equipped me with valuable tools for my mental well-being journey. Their professionalism, empathy, and dedication to the well-being of each participant were evident in every interaction.

I felt comfortable opening up about my thoughts and emotions, knowing that I was in capable and compassionate hands. I highly recommend BTC (especially their awesome retreats) to anyone seeking a supportive environment to nurture their mental health."

From Lisa

"My experience at BTC has been so significant in my overall health. I had TMS treatment for anxiety and depression and the changes are noticeable. My mood is brighter, I have more energy to do the things that I procrastinated on before. The level of anxiety that I live with has decreased making daily life less challenging.

The staff has been amazing. They have created a welcoming and comforting space that feels like a safe haven. Lauren, Romy, and Fernanda did the TMS sessions, but more so, they were guides and companions on my journey. A special staff member, Mimi, Romy's sweet dog, was a comfort and joy as she sat with me during treatments. Dr. Cammy is so good at what she does. It meant so much to have her empathy and insight.

I am forever grateful that my doctor referred me to BTC and that these extraordinary people are a part of my life."

From Nichole

"This has been hands down one of the most prolific experiences of my life. I can't even begin to express how grateful to have been given the opportunity to experience this medicine. IM Ketamine therapy has helped "rewire" my brain. The effects have been long lasting, and have allowed me to find different perspectives and new ways of thinking.

While the Therapy itself is absolutely mind blowing, the staff are equally amazing. BTC has gone above and beyond to create a safe haven for these types of experiences. Their rooms are cozy, and soft and lovely. Making for a safe and nurturing experience. From the front of the house to the back of the house, every single one of these souls is curious, excited, informed, professional, and incredibly kind towards all who walk through their doors.

I have had the great pleasure of working with Dr. Marty on my journey, and I have had a blast working through a myriad of life topics with him. From giggles to tears it has been such a wonderful experience having him in my corner as I work through all of this crazy life stuff and integrate the IM therapy itself.

On another note, I know this therapy can be financially out of reach for a lot of people right now, but I was able to set up a payment plan that fit my budget and time line. They are super flexible and willing to work with you. Let me tell you, this experience is priceless.

If you can, go for it! You will not be disappointed and your world may open up to you in a way that you never thought possible."

From Justin

"Be the Change in Mental Health is an exceptional facility that provides transformative services. The welcoming atmosphere and empathetic, skilled staff create a safe space for healing. Their unique approach, especially with Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy, serves as a catalyst for deep mental and emotional growth. As someone navigating personal challenges with childhood trauma, depression, and anxiety, I've personally experienced the profound impact of their services.

They guided me to overcome bad habits, adopt healthier ones, and confront and release emotions linked to traumatic experiences. This journey, while challenging, led me to let go of the immense burden I had been carrying. I've also observed the significant effects these services have on other individuals seeking a better life direction.

I highly recommend Be the Change in Mental Health for anyone looking to enhance their mental well-being. P.s. Dr. Cammy Michael's unique approach and knowledge was an important factor in my healing, thank you so much for your kindness and wisdom and playing a crucial role in it all."

From Diana

Truly and amazing team!"

 

Life Changing Treatments - The Commitment that's Worth Every Effort

From Meg

"Be the Change Mental Health is a wonderful facility with amazing staff that offers life changing services. I am a Life Coach who has worked with a client undergoing Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy treatments here and would recommend Be The Change to anyone feeling aimless or depressed who wants to find new perspective and better direction in life. The facility is clean, comfortable, and relaxing; from the moment you walk in you feel you're in a safe, caring place.

The staff is friendly, helpful, and compassionate; everyone from the Office Manager to the Therapists to the Directors are truly gifted at creating a space where real healing can occur. The Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy sessions are administered in a very approachable and safe way. I've found that they act as a catalyst for deep mental and emotional growth that would have taken me much longer to assist my client in achieving without the help of this life changing service.

I'm grateful for Be the Change and the resources they offer people to attain improved mental health."

From Stacy

"This process changed my life. I was at a point that nothing was working for my depression or anxiety. I felt a change after the first treatment. The entire staff was so amazing and made me feel so cared for during my visits."

From Vicki

"I am so grateful BTC was here to help me with my depression, the experience is life changing. Thank You Dr Chillcott and the entire staff!!!"

From Sarah

"Be the Change in Mental Health are miracle workers that help people transform. Without oversharing too much personal info here about my own journey to well-being, I'll broadly say the staff make you feel welcome and hopeful, the facilities are comfy and home'y, and the ketamine therapy... is groundbreaking... a perfect blend of the expanded-state experience itself, and therapy.

It's a guided inward exploration that helps stuck things move, old wounds heal, and a reemergence of a deep almost divine forgotten love, meaning and strength. The therapy sessions surrounding the medicine sessions thoughtfully and elegantly hold the experience. The therapist's themselves seem to have so much heart and truly care. Like humble shepherds and guides for deeply personal and meaningful journey.

I'd recommend multiple sessions for anyone really seeking big gains in their mental health and even existential/spiritual growth. I'm constantly surprised at how much more the process of this type of therapy is, than just 'getting better' from 'being' sick. To me it is more like becoming more and deeper who we want to be, and feeling freer and more connected to life. If that makes sense."

From Mimi

"Wow! I was skeptical about trying ketamine as a therapy because it seemed intimidating since I don't do any type of drugs (except wine :)). - BUT I loved the concept of you don't have to be sick to be more well, which I read in an article about Be the Change in Mental Health. I went in to work on a bad habit I have been trying to change -- and talked to my therapist (assigned at the clinic ) before I had my medical evaluation.

I asked her to hold my hand through the whole thing b/c I was nervous. She did! And when I came out of my session - we talked for another hour about every last detail.

When I got home, I felt different, better. When I told my family about it, both my daughter (25) and mother (75) to signed up."
