Bloom is looking for contractual REGISTERED THERAPISTS to join our team. At Bloom, we bring the worlds of science and psychedelics together by providing the safest, most effective, evidence-based psychedelic-assisted therapy. Our innovative program combines ketamine and psychotherapy to provide modern mental healthcare solutions that show real promise in improving lives. As laws evolve and we become involved in research trials through our affiliation with the University of Calgary, we plan to offer other psychedelic medicines in conjunction with psychotherapy.

This may include conducting both individual and group therapy sessions designed to assist clients in developing awareness, improving coping strategies, restoring functioning, and enhancing overall wellness and quality of life. You will also be involved in preparatory sessions to help clients prepare for their psychedelic experiences and integration sessions to help clients implement the teachings from these experiences into daily life. This is a contractual on-site role.
You will play an important role in the innovative approach to treating depression, anxiety, and PTSD using ketamine-assisted therapy. As a key member of our multidisciplinary team, your work would be an integral part of delivering a program dedicated to providing the best-in-class psychedelic care. Your work will contribute to research we will be conducting at our clinic to track and publish outcomes, making you a part of the bigger movement happening throughout the field of psychedelic medicine.
