Kylie House is a psychiatrist who trained at the University of Colorado Psychiatry Residency Program, and prior to this, earned her medical degree at Saint Louis University School of Medicine. Along the way, she has sought out and developed her special interests in community mental health, psychodynamic psychotherapy, psychosomatic medicine, psychedelic medicine, and use of ceremony and honoring the spirit. She works with these emphases in a collaborative approach to help one rediscover their health, vitality, individualism, and wholeness.
Kylie has gained much experience working with individuals with some of the most severe mental health concerns in the state of Colorado. With that experience, she has much comfort in utilizing conventional and pointedly effective practices when appropriate. At the same time, she has found that most individuals do not need strong and sometimes side-effect laden interventions if a holistic approach is incorporated into one’s treatment plan. Overall, Kylie sees herself as a co-explorer and guide to help you navigate what is the terrain of your mind, and with this philosophy, your autonomy and decision making is the highest priority.
Specifically, Kylie’s practice will employ conventional medication management, psychotherapy, psychedelic psychotherapy, and integrative approaches. At this time, ketamine-assisted psychotherapy is part of her tool kit, and she is in the process of completing her training to be a psychotherapist and prescriber for MAPS’ MDMA-assisted psychotherapy trials. Kylie is trained as an adult psychiatrist but understands the need and demand for psychiatrists who work with younger populations. As such, she sees individuals ages 15 and up.
When not involved in clinical work and furthering her understanding of the boundless psyche, Kylie likes to connect with others and have fun with her partner! Her interests include music, dance, and nature. She also exercises her need for spiritual community with her Lakota family and is a founding board member of Wanbli Oyate Woapiya, a nonprofit organization aimed to empower and teach Native American youth American Indian teachings, practices, and ceremony.
