Dr. Mark A Braunstein answers the call to healing, medicine, and innovation through his work as a psychiatrist.
Mark is a practicing child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist.
His skill sets are an amalgam of psychodynamic theory, traditional psychopharmacology, wilderness, cannabis, and psychedelic psychiatry.
He earned his medical degree in 1997, completed a residency in general psychiatry and a fellowship in child/adolescent psychiatry.
After years of on-the-ground psychiatry work, Mark began to see the deficits present in contemporary models of treatment.
The psychopharmacologic focus left patients fundamentally unchanged, dependent, and struggling with side effects.
In 2002, with this knowledge in tow, Mark relocated to Colorado, intent on expanding his practice to include cannabis & wilderness therapy.
Through his concurrent work in both fields, Mark has pioneered the practice of wilderness psychiatry & has kept an eclectic private practice for more than 20 years.
He has been involved with psychedelics for more than 30 years and is now seen as a visionary in the space working on safely increasing access and efficacy.
He studied ketamine assisted psychotherapy under his mentor Dr. Phil Wolfson and is now blessed to be able to teach alongside him.
