Making a way to open doors for All of Us
Make a Donation
While training in the field of Psychedelic Assisted Therapy, it became alarmingly clear that there was a huge racial gap and little representation from sexual and gender minorities. This is true for both clients accessing psychedelic medicines in a therapeutic setting and therapists providing these services. Access to Doorways was founded a Queer Black woman seeking to address these issues and support clients, therapists and organizations who can fill the gap! We have expanded into the nonprofit sector with this endeavor and hope to build partnerships with donors and government agencies to cover costs to clients and training for QT/BIPOC therapists.
What We Do
Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy can provide life-altering healing for QT/BIPOC clients. Your donation removes the financial barrier to psychedelic therapy for clients who are in need of this healing the most!
It is important for Queer and BIPOC folks to be represented in the psychedelics community and to be highly trained to create an environment where folks can feel safe and welcomed in exploring plant medicine. Donations to Access 2 Doorways support trainings for QT/BIPOC therapists offering psychedelic therapies.
There is a dearth of research in the psychedelic field around QT/BIPOC clients and Access 2 Doorways will meet that need.
In the true spirit of “Access for all of us”, we offer support to QT/BIPOC led projects focusing on psychedelics for Black, Indigenous, People of Color, Queer, Non-Binary, Gender Non-Conforming and Two Spirit communities.
Our Mission & Approach
Psilocybin, Ayahuasca, Iboga and Sassafras (bio parent of MDMA) have been used by Indigenous communities of color for thousands of years but Black, Indigenous People of Color have little access to these medicines today. Funding and compensation to address wage and income disparities are key! We can’t ask QT/BIPOC therapists to work at reduced rates and we have to provide quality care to our QT/BIPOC clients in need. We hope to build partnerships with donors and government agencies to cover cost to clients while fully compensating our QT/BIPOC providers for their labor.
In our first year we want to provide subsidized Ketamine Assisted Therapy to 100 Black, Indigenous People of Color and Queer, trans, gender non-conforming, non-binary and two spirit clients struggling with PTSD, anxiety and depression. It’s a lofty goal, but we believe the psychedelic community will help us reach it!
Although still in the start up phase, we have big goals! Help us raise these numbers!!
