He received a dual master’s degree in Music Therapy and Counseling from Drexel University in 2019 and was granted the Dean’s Clinical Service Award for work with underserved members of the community, pointing to the cultural humility and empathy central to his therapeutic work.

Patrick Grugan, MSW, MFA, LCSW

Partner Therapist at Voyage Healing
I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and I work with people who are dealing with 
depression, anxiety, trauma, self-esteem issues, or other mood disorders.  I like to help people 
understand themselves more deeply, and see themselves in a more accurate and 
compassionate way, so that they can live the most satisfying, authentic, and creative lives they 
can.   
 
I have advanced training in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and in Mindfulness Based Stress 
Reduction, as well as training in Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy from Voyage Healing and 
from Fluence.  My approach is warm, thoughtful, and eclectic. And I believe that all of us have a 
spark of potential that’s bigger and more powerful than our struggles. 

Alexandra R Darion, LPC

Partner Therapist at Voyage Healing
Our collective mental health presents a major challenge in our society. One in 
three people meet the diagnostic criteria for anxiety and/or depression. For 
many of us, it feels like no matter what we try we simply cannot find relief from 
our symptoms; there are too many blocks that prevent us from achieving 
peace.   
 
My work started with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which can be helpful 
in the moment but, typically symptoms return.  I am trained in EMDR, eye 
movement desensitization and reprocessing, which is an effective trauma 
treatment, however I noticed that many struggle with re-experiencing these 
traumas.  Internal Family Symptoms, or parts work, is an exciting new way of 
looking at mental health, but our “protectors” can be ingrained and distrusting 
of doing things in a different way. 
 
I recently learned about psychedelic assisted therapy and Ketamine Assisted 
Psychotherapy, or KAP.  This medicine, along with intent-setting and follow-up 
integration, can be highly beneficial in working with these protectors so that 
we can access the root cause of our mental health and we can find relief from 
depressionanxiety and trauma.  To be clear, it is my belief that ketamine in 
conjunction with psychotherapy, is the protocol that is most effective for true 
healing. 
 
I’m excited to learn more about you and your unique journey! I promise to 
make therapy enjoyable and, dare I say, fun if you promise to work hard! 
Please get in touch with me and we can discuss your goals and we can come 
up with a plan together.
