Brian Moskowitz

MA, MACP, RP

As a Registered Psychotherapist, I help clients build a deeper awareness of their mind-body connection; this helps them develop greater self-regulation, a healthier sense of self and more satisfying interpersonal relationships.

My experiences with depression, addiction, recovery, meditation, blended family-life, and psychotherapy have helped me to appreciate the role a safe therapeutic environment plays in helping people effectively encounter the emotions and long-standing narratives that are holding them back from their desired life.

While I help clients connect with their present-moment experience, my approach is very much trauma-informed and psychodynamic. I seek to provide you with the room you need to explore how your past may be impacting, or even overwhelming your present.

Justin Davies,

Founder and CEO. Entrepreneur and Former Depression sufferer

Justin Davies is an entrepreneur based in Toronto. In 2004 he launched ATM Works, and in 2009 launched JD ATM, a successful enterprise that places ATMs and provides merchant services throughout the GTA. To the Toronto Ketamine Clinic, Davies brings his experience in building and running a successful company over the past 15 years, creating and developing his business from conception – raising capital, sales development and staffing. Davies graduated from York University with a BA in political science.

Davies has, over the past 20 years, experienced the despair of treatment-resistant depression. It wasn’t until he was introduced to IV Ketamine infusions in the U.S. that he experienced both immediate relief and a resurgence of a range of emotions that were otherwise unavailable. Having gone through a myriad of partially- to completely-ineffective treatments, he can personally testify to the effectiveness of ketamine infusions. Justin’s passion and commitment is to bring this life-saving treatment to Canadians who currently are suffering from major mood disorders and chronic mental-health conditions to provide a new range of opportunities to this population that is often plagued with hopelessness.

My story:

Like so many others, I had tried multiple antidepressant medications only to have a partial response or no response at all. I had dealt with my depression that way for over 20 years. It was when an unrelenting bout hit me in 2016 that I knew I had to find something new. I discovered intravenous ketamine infusions in the United States and I remember before my first infusion at a clinic in New York, I was so nervous and desperately hoped it would work. To say it was transformative is to understate it. The heaviness in my head and body dissolved and I felt a lightness that I had not felt in years. I was astounded. It was at that point I vowed that I would bring this treatment to our country.
