We Are Here To Help

We are committed to what we do, and we focus on just one thing – ketamine-based therapy. We promise to use all of our knowledge, experience, and expertise to provide each person we meet with the best possible treatment available for the relief of their illness.

We are working every day to help individuals who are suffering from complicated and treatment-resistant disorders that have been given up on by other health care providers. It can be difficult, and it takes time, effort, and experience working with one person at a time to get the greatest possible result.

Mitchell Bailey

Mitchell Bailey, CRNA

Mitch has over 27 years of experience in Anesthesia mostly serving the rural communities located in the 4 corners area. He was retired from the Army Reserves when 9/11 occurred and he immediately volunteered and re-enlisted with the Army’s first Forward Surgical Team (FST) that was activated for Operation Freedom in 2003.

This unit accompanied the first ground troops that were sent into Iraq. Mitch received the Army Commendation Medal for that service. In addition, Mitch and another CRNA were nominated for the Bronze Medal for their service during this time.

Mitch is excited to be providing this much-needed service in the 4 Corners area. In his spare time he enjoys backpacking, 4-wheeling, riding motorcycles and his side by side in exploring the beauty of this part of the country with his family. He enjoys serving others and this clinic is an extension of that service.

Adora Diaz crna

Adora Diaz, CRNA

Adora has over a decade of experience in providing compassionate health care. She began her nursing career in Sacramento, CA taking care of patients on a trauma medical-surgical floor, moved to the ICU, and eventually transitioned to pursuing her Masters’s in Nurse Anesthesia at Westminster College. As a nurse anesthetist, she enjoys the complexity of the operating room and the comprehensive care required during the surgery process.

However, over the last year, she has passionately blended her professional and personal life. Adora believes in every person’s innate ability to heal themselves. She has completed a 500-hour yoga teaching certificate and a 10-day silent retreat called Vipassana. She hosts weekend mindfulness retreats and teaches dance movement therapy. Adora uses states of non-ordinary consciousness, such as breathwork, meditation, and sound healing to promote connection and deep healing. When she received the opportunity to manage Mindful Infusions, Adora never felt more sure about something. She was motivated and invigorated to hold space for people on their healing journey.

Adora has completed several modules of Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy Training at Polaris Insight Center. She attends workshops regularly on topics such as trauma, somatics, and healing modalities. She loves climbing and snowboarding, as well as her tiny dog, Shiva. She is the manager and head CRNA at Mindful Infusions.

Michael John Paul Ryan

Michael John-Paul Ryan, RN BSN NPS

Emergency Room Nurse

Michael has been involved in healthcare for over 6 years. His explorations as a travel nurse have led him to Pennsylvania, Colorado and his now home of Utah, where he is currently finishing his degree as a family nurse practitioner. Michael thrives in critical environments in which he can use both his critical and intuitive thinking skills.

In recent years, Michael has taken interest in providing to others through different facets such as ketamine therapy. Being exposed to the surge of psychological disparity after the pandemic, he noticed the lack of mental recovery from patients. He believes the brain is more powerful than meets the eye, and hopes to help others recognize their true potential through ketamine therapy.

Michael is an avid backcountry split boarder, climber, and frequently involves himself in playing music with others.
