Christina Thomas

As President and Founder of MY Self Wellness, Christina Thomas leads management and operations for the Ketamine Clinic—ensuring employees, partners, and customers alike experience the highest level of support and assistance. Christina has over a decade of experience in the hospitality and management industries and received her undergraduate degree from Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU). Christina knows firsthand what it feels like to battle depression, anxiety, and PTSD after being involved in a life-threatening jet ski accident in 2007.

She was prescribed a medley of pain killers and mood stabilizers to help suppress trauma caused by the accident, but the drugs left her feeling joyless and lost. She knew there had to be a better way and embarked on a self-healing journey. Using meditation and positive lifestyle changes, she was able to wean herself off her prescription medications, but it wasn’t until Christina discovered the healing powers of Ketamine that she was able to truly heal.

Today, she is on a mission to share the restorative benefits of Ketamine with anyone suffering from mental, emotional, and physical distress. Opening its doors one week before the COVID-19 lockdown of 2020, MY Self Wellness stands as a beacon of hope and healing to anyone suffering from mental health issues. When Christina isn’t working at the clinic, she’s mother to her 2-year-old son, Charlie, and is a loving fiancée too, Charles Patti, the clinic’s Brand Ambassador. Together, they are on a mission to serve southwest Florida. Christina believes that healing happens in the community and is proud to run one of the nation’s first female-led Ketamine clinics.

Charles Patti

My name is Charles Patti I am the Chief Education Officer and Brand Ambassador of MY Self Wellness. My journey to self-awareness and healing began over nine years ago. Like so many others who have been through trauma and addiction, I found myself lost and unable to cultivate healing that sustained me long-term.

I spent many years hiding from myself, and unable to understand how to create healing within me that could impact true change in my life. It was not until I began to incorporate psychedelics in a therapeutic way that I began to see a transformation taking place within me. There is a connection to healing our trauma and re-wiring our nervous system. Psychedelics can be a useful tool when done in a safe set and setting and incorporating integrative practices to assist you in the long term.

The journey is not in the medicine, but when you take what you have witnessed and bring it back into daily practice. Everyone matters, there is not one soul on this planet that is less worthy or deserving to receive these healing modalities. It is my mission to bring these healing modalities to the collective on a global level. I believe monetary status should not be what stands in the way of anyone’s healing journey. We rise and heal together is what this is all about
