our mission is simple, yet transformational:

to help you feel better, create deeply fulfilling relationships, and come into your power

Feel Better

Optimize, heal, and connect. These are the building blocks you need to create a life that inspires. We optimize your body and all of its systems, addressing everything from hormonal imbalances to cognitive function. Then we offer psychotherapy that helps you safely explore, understand, and transform your thoughts, fears, emotions, relationships, and past trauma so that they no longer hold you back. Finally, we teach you how to connect with yourself, your friends and family, your community, and your purpose. Our goal is for you to walk out of Kuya thinking, “This is the best I’ve ever felt!”

Create deeply fulfilling relationships

As you get to know yourself better through therapy, you begin to see patterns. What hurts? What persists? What thought traps do you fall into again and again? You also learn what helps. We teach you how to cultivate empathy, for yourself and others. This empowers you to lead from a place of authenticity and vulnerability, and to deepen your relationships with others and with yourself.

Come into your power

Choosing to heal takes courage. It means facing fear, trauma, dependencies, and grief. Once your brain, body, and mind are transformed, your struggles no longer define you. You are the one in control of your life. You feel empowered and confident, which allows you to uncover your purpose in life. Finally, you are living the life you were meant to. This healing journey gifts you with a wisdom that is unique to you. We help you heal so you can share your gift with the world.

where science meets the Soul

“The practice of modern psychiatry is predominantly a medication model, and thus benefits the longer you're sick. This model is outdated. The underlying issues must be addressed so that life can be celebrated again. This is the model we have created at Kuya.”

— Dr. Dan, Co-Founder + Medical Director

Modern medicine is incredibly powerful. Neuroscience is discovering how to restore and rewire our brains. Epigenetics has demonstrated that our genes are not our fate and we can design our lives in ways that best support a thriving human system. Bio optimization allows us to push the limits of human performance. Regenerative medicine supports our bodies’ building blocks. And psychedelics have the power to change our minds for the better—safely and quickly.

This is the science. But what is the Soul?

Soul is an ancient word. In Greek, it translates to psyche, the root word of psychiatry, a practice whose roots lie in Soul-centered medicine.

Soul is what animates your life.
Soul is your source of love.
Soul holds your code for living well.

Like others, we leverage the power of modern medicine to heal your brain, body, and mind. The Kuya difference is how we immerse you in and support you through a Soul-centered transformational process, helping you unlock the code your Soul holds for your life.  

We believe your Soul’s dream is your life’s purpose. And when we live a life of purpose, we are fulfilled—we’ve landed home in a life we love.

transformative stories

So many have already experienced the kind of transformation you crave. Learn how they journeyed from lives of trauma and pain to lives of joy and purpose.

“ ”

Kuya started me on a new path of transformation and growth.

It felt incredibly calming, connecting, and authentic to be so vulnerable. The moment I felt this inner calm, I knew I was ready to commit to the work. I am finally understanding how there's such a deeper connection between mind and body.

The ketamine sessions gave [my therapist] a microscopic view of what’s going on inside my head, then made sense of it. After completing a few sessions, I have experienced a clearer way of thinking and access to a calmer part of me that I haven't felt before.

Life-changing. Truly.

My mind felt totally at peace. It was the most blissful experience I've ever had.

You can work, hold meetings, relax with friends, or just breathe. Kuya is here for you, Austin. Come on in.

Free co-working space

We offer free WiFi in a comfortable setting. It was designed to be inspiring and calming so that you can create, ideate, and problem-solve at your peak.

A harmonious meeting place

Our lounge is filled with plants to cleanse the air and calm the mind. A Himalayan salt wall also purifies the air; reduces headaches, allergy symptoms, cough, and stress; and improves energy. We think it’s the best place in Austin to hold a business meeting.

Take a break

Our Community Center is the perfect place to come when you want to step out of your busy life and the noisy modern world and relax. You can meditate, order a plant-based elixir, schedule a treatment (floats, hot/cold therapy, or IV infusion), make new friends, or just soak it all in.

We cannot fully heal or thrive without a supportive community. This is a critical part of whole human healing. Connecting with people who are on a similar wellness journey makes us feel less alone and helps us understand ourselves better. Transformation never truly ends, and our community is here to support you every step of the way.
