Meet Jason Sienknecht LPC, ACC, a compassionate psychotherapist driven by a lifelong fascination with the field of psychology. His journey began in the summer of 2000, where he worked as a mental health technician at an inpatient psychiatric hospital. This experience exposed him to the vast spectrum of mental illnesses and ignited a profound admiration for the courage and resilience of those striving to heal.
During that time, Jason noticed the limitations of traditional treatment methods, which relied heavily on psychiatric medications and lacked sufficient talk therapy. This realization became the catalyst for his unwavering commitment to improving the quality of psychological treatment and exploring alternative healing approaches.
After completing his undergraduate studies at the University of Arizona, Jason pursued his true passion at Naropa University for graduate school. There, he immersed himself in the integration of Eastern religions and Western psychotherapy, earning a Master’s degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology.
Inspired by a holistic framework, Jason ventured into his career as a psychotherapist, integrating the knowledge he acquired at Naropa into his practice. He obtained his license as a professional counselor (LPC) and achieved certification as an addictions specialist (ACC).
Throughout his 18-year journey, Jason’s career has spanned various contexts within public mental health. From inpatient psychiatric hospitals to outpatient treatment centers, community outreach organizations, and mobile crisis programs, he has dedicated himself to helping individuals overcome psychological barriers.
In the last four years, Jason has fulfilled his long-time goal of becoming a psychedelic therapist at Wholeness Center in Fort Collins, CO. As a trained ketamine-assisted psychotherapist and a MAPS-trained MDMA-assisted psychotherapist, he utilizes oral, intramuscular (IM), and intravenous (IV) ketamine to aid in healing treatment-resistant depression, PTSD, and other conditions.
Passionate about sharing the transformative potential of expanded states of consciousness, Jason co-founded the Psychedelic Research and Training Center (PRATI) and now serves as lead faculty. PRATI hosts multiple ketamine-assisted psychotherapy trainings each year for clinicians across the nation.
Embracing innovation, Jason has recently joined the MindMed research team, contributing to the study of LSD’s effects on anxiety. His commitment to holistic healing and wholeness has culminated in a fulfilling career, where he endeavors to share the unique form of healing found in psychedelic therapy with the world. Through his work and dedication, Jason Sienknecht brings hope and transformation to the lives of those he serves.
