Christina Thomas

President and Founder

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 painkillers 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 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 partner to 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

Brand Ambassador at MY Self Wellness

Charles Patti serves as the Brand Ambassador for MY Self Wellness. His own journey of healing has provided him with the opportunity to share his story and help others.

He started off using alcohol and other substances at a young age to try and escape his depression, anxiety, and fear of death. He was always a good person but couldn't ever get himself together or get any prolonged sobriety under his belt. He was always getting in trouble because of his drinking and using and felt hopeless like there was nothing that was ever going to get him out of this despair and addiction. Feeling so hopeless for so long being as an IV drug user, alcoholic, and addicted to benzodiazepines, crack cocaine, food, sex, and even scratch-off tickets left him unsure if anything was ever going to be able to pull him out from where he was mentally, physically and spiritually.

Then, through the use of psychedelic medicines, his life changed. Psilocybin mushrooms, dimethyltryptamine (DMT), and ketamine were game changers. These medicines alleviated his fear of death and his anxiety and depression subsided.

Psychedelic medicines changed everything for him and he gives full credit to these medicines. However, meditation, self-work, and healthy living also played a huge role in his healing and has gotten him to where he is today.

His mission is to let anybody know that if they're struggling out there and they feel like nothing is going to work, there is hope! If he was able to beat multiple addictions, anxiety and depression, anybody can.
