Martha Ann Hammel

Certified Nutrition Specialist, Natural-Food Chef, and Psychedelic educator

Martha Ann Hammel is a certified nutrition specialist, natural-food chef, and psychedelic educator. She earned a master’s degree in Nutrition and Integrative Health from the Maryland University of Integrative Health in 2016 after writing her thesis on the intersection of emotional trauma, addiction, and gut health. She specializes in brain health, gut health, depression, eating disorders, addiction recovery, and stress response.

She trained as a neuro-nutrient recovery specialist with Christina Vesalak at the Academy for Addiction and Mental Health Nutrition, using functional medicine and amino acid therapy to help clients rebalance mood and neurotransmitter function. This approach is particularly helpful for patients weaning off of pharmaceutical medications.

Martha has received advanced training in Mindfulness-Based Psychedelic Therapy with the Center for Medicinal Mindfulness, and completed a practicum in Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy. She has provided preparation and integration support for clients receiving treatment at multiple ketamine clinics. She has worked with medical cannabis as it supports the treatment of dementia, autoimmune conditions, gut health, and eating disorders.

Martha’s journey with nutrition and psychedelics began simultaneously. Her first encounter with non-ordinary states of consciousness was a mushroom journey while in high school. That experience led to a remission of long standing anorexia, depression, anxiety, and suicidality. In the integration period, she realized she wanted to guide others out of disordered eating. The messages from that experience still resonate, and have driven her forward in her nutrition journey. She is thrilled to see that potential for psychedelics in treating eating disorders is finally being recognized.

At Aspen Ketamine Center, Martha collaborates with our clinical team of practitioners and mental health professionals to support our clients in their transformational work.

When she’s not excitedly talking about psychedelic research or espousing the virtues of eating more vegetables, you can find her in the mountains, skiing, biking, running, climbing, or stretched out, looking at the stars.

Hi! I'm Ellena Mendoza, Certified Functional Nutrition Counselor and Emotions Mentor Coach from Western Colorado. My passion is to support those who have tried everything, and are ready to step off their ill-health and emotional roller coaster. I want to support you in learning how to take your life back through diet and lifestyle modification, and most of all, through the compassion and the follow-through so many of us need and deserve........because what could you be without your story?


Do you ever feel like you ARE your diagnosis? I have, and it's not how I wanted to live my life. I am no stranger to chronic health issues like SIBO, gastritis, gut dysbiosis, co-infections, histamine reactions to even healthy foods, and Celiac Disease. I have lived with hypothyroid, hormone dysfunction, and the emotional rollercoaster that is anxiety, panic disorder, and the depression that comes with poor gut health and inflammation, having been diagnosed with Hashimotos Thyroiditis. 


It took time, but through my "never give up attitude" and love for research and the human body and what it IS capable of, I'm now free of those symptoms that once plagued me and consider my autoimmune disease in remission. 


If you have tried everything, sought the help of many practitioners, and you're still having gut health symptoms, food intolerances, immune dysfunction, stubborn weight loss, hormone imbalances, fatigue, mental and emotional health challenges, you're in the right place. I can help!


Take the first step and discover how Functional Nutrition Counseling & Wellness Coaching can improve health, and bring relief to you and your loved ones.


My mission is to help my clients gain as much as they can from their therapies. I believe ketamine therapy has the power to be one of the most powerful and transformative experiences a person can have, but without integration, the experience can fall flat. When undergoing ketamine therapy, it is important to have an intention. Integration is the process of setting your intention, being open and willing to receive insights relating to this intention during therapy, and then applying those insights to your daily life, thus turning your intention into a reality. My goal is to guide clients through this process, helping to facilitate long-lasting positive changes. 

In addition to being a certified integration coach, I have been trained in transformational coaching and addiction recovery. I look forward to meeting you and helping you discover your truest self.

Have you tried to get help for your anxiety, depression, or relationship concerns but find yourself still struggling? For many people, getting to the root of these issues lies deeper in what I refer to as emotional wounding. Emotional wounds can stem from things that most people consider traumatic (think big traumatic experiences – if you’ve experienced them, you probably know). They can also come from negative life experiences that impact our sense of identity by changing our internalized beliefs about ourselves and the way we interact with the world (think growing up with dysfunctional family members, being bullied or teased by peers, negative messaging we receive from media, health problems, and the list goes on.) These are commonly referred to as “small t” traumas and can create complex trauma. I refer to them as emotional

wounds because our emotions and nervous system are intricately connected. And our nervous system continues to impact how we think, feel, and behave.

In our work together, we will work on getting to the root of the symptoms whether it be negative body image, anxiety, depression, patterns of negative relationships (intimate, friendships, and family). As a trauma-informed, body-positive therapist, I have seen numerous clients come in after receiving little to no relief from medications or other counseling. And the reason these symptoms persist is because we have to get to the root of it to truly heal it. Through deep self-exploration and healing emotional wounds, we can help your nervous

system learn a new way of being and therefore a new way of interacting with life.

I work from a compassionate, client-centered approach to individualize your therapy to best meet your unique needs. It is not one size fits all when it comes to therapy and I firmly believe it takes client and therapist collaboration to make sure you are getting the benefits you are looking for. Change is possible. If you’re tired of feeling stuck, please call me for a free phone consultation to see if I might be a good fit for you.
