ABOUT US

Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

We provide a therapeutic environment for ongoing group integration to support cultivating insight and promote lasting transformation. 

Floresta is a team of clinicians, doctors, coaches, pioneers and those that dare to be the change that is required within mental health and psychiatry. Have you been in therapy for years, tried countless medications or know that there is something more than what is currently being offered within mental health?

We are here to facilitate an increase in awareness and consciousness as we blend Western med ical and psychotherapeutic methods with diverse Eastern and Indigenous practices. Working with the medicine of psychedelic medicine can allow for clarity, healing, insight and creating with choice. We are here to let you know there is another way.

PSYCHEDELIC MEDICINE

Psychedelic medicine is a safe, well known medication that is currently being prescribed off-label for depression, anxiety, PTSD, trauma, OCD, addiction and other mental health concerns.

It assists in rewiring the neural network in the brain through an increase in glutamate receptors and brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF.) BDNF has been shown to promote neuroplasticity which allows for new neuronal connections in the brain. This has been shown to have rapid antidepressant and anti-anxiety effects as well as being an effective treatment for many other mental health conditions.
