KAP Wellness opens its doors in 2023.
Welcome to the first and only treatment center for KAPspotting™.
While working at her Westcoast Trauma and Testing Specialists Practice, Dr. Nicolette Bautista, developed a new method to treat trauma. KAPspotting is now trademarked. This revolutionary treatment is now available for formal training to other therapists.

Our location was thoughtfully selected. The 1800 sq. ft. space is designed for a calming, truly therapeutic patient experience.

Research shows that a space infused with natural elements and lighting can positively influence mood and behavior. With our tree-filled surroundings overlooking a large wildlife pond and ample windows to maximize natural lighting, we think you’ll find the space here conducive to comfort and healing. The environment is serene and scenic. We see wildlife out of our windows daily, and so do our clients.

We’ve provided patient-centric amenities for your comfort and convenience.

Meet the Clinician

Hi, I’m Dr. Bautista.

Choosing a therapist is one of the most important health decisions you can make. I understand the vulnerability involved in putting your trust in what’s essentially a stranger. I commend you for taking this step.

My goal is to help you reclaim your freedom from trauma. I’ll work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your unique needs.

As someone who recovered from childhood trauma, I know how distant life without trauma may seem. But I assure you: recovery is possible. Now, a quick story.

After eight years in psychotherapy, I thought my trauma was healed until I attended my first Brainspotting training. When a horrible 20-year-old memory surfaced, I was shaken to the core. It was 25 minutes later that the memory was neutralized. My symptoms were gone, for good, and I was sold.

With its novel ability to reduce fear and defenses, I knew Ketamine would be another game-changer for trauma. After training, I worked with a physician to pair Ketamine with brainspotting. Client results were as remarkable as they were with brainspotting, only faster. KAPspotting was born.

Now I want to help you achieve your own breakthrough.

Trauma presents in infinite ways, even when it’s repressed. The simple explanation for repressed trauma is our brains “hide” traumatic memories as a coping mechanism. An “invisible” manifestation can be simply that the patient misperceives the world. But whether ongoing, occasionally intrusive, or subconscious, trauma symptoms cause deleterious effects.

There’s good news; it’s called neuroplasticity! The brain is an organ designed to heal itself! If you’ve found little to no relief of symptoms, you may have undischarged trauma. I can help you extract the trauma once and for all!

Many patients who turn to ketamine therapy or brainspotting have tried more traditional treatments that have been around longer, such as talk therapy or CBT. But ketamine therapy, brainspotting, and KAPspotting can be used at any stage of treatment.

I don’t want your healing journey to be one teardrop, one flashback, or one day more than necessary. You don’t have to spend years and years in therapy. With the advanced therapies we provide, it can be months—not years.

When I’m not treating my patients, I enjoy gardening, traveling, movies, hiking, yoga, and spending time with family, friends, and three little canines.

Conditions I can help with: depression, bipolar disorder, Acute Stress Disorder, PTSD, Complex PTSD, anxiety, OCD, dissociative disorders, somatic symptom disorders, and bereavement. I work with all ages and backgrounds. My youngest brainspotting client was 3 years old. I have sat with senior clients at their end of life.
