Summary of Treatments
TMS uses magnetic pulses to gently activate parts of the brain associated with depression and anxiety. TMS is typically administered 5 times per week for 4-6 weeks. TMS is both drug-free and FDA-approved.
Ketamine (or name-brand Spravato) is an intranasal spray with a profound ability to rapidly alleviate symptoms of depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and chronic pain. Ketamine treatments are usually administered in the office twice a week.
Neurofeedback allows individuals to train their own brainwaves to combat maladaptive patterns and behaviors. A computer is set up to monitor these brainwaves, and we give the individual different types of feedback depending on what waves are being produced. For instance, if an individual is anxious, their brainwaves will reflect this, and the computer will may make a specific sound. The same may happen if someone is more relaxed. Over time, people can learn how to control their own brainwaves and teach themselves how to regulate their own brain.
Group therapy can be an effective way to share experiences with others dealing with the same issues in the community. Group therapy sessions are kept small, and are 100% confidential. We usually have group therapy in the afternoons and evenings.
Mindfulness meditations sessions offer a unique way to take oneself out of their head, and learn how to be fully present in the moment.
EMDR is one of the most effective treatments available for PTSD, scientifically validated in over 30 peer-reviewed randomized controlled trials. EMDR is unique in that the therapy itself is meant to be short-term, meaning one doesn’t have to stay in therapy forever. Our therapists are EMDR certified.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
CBT is one of the most well-researched methods of talk therapy. CBT involves becoming aware of negative, self-destructive, and/or maladaptive thought patterns, and developing skills to help deter these. CBT is an active type of talk therapy, whereby the individual works on attaining specific goals with their therapist.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
DBT is another type of evidence-based talk therapy, involving developing increased mindfulness, emotional regulation, resilience, and communication skills. Once learned, DBT skills can become useful in many other facets in life.
You will have an individual therapy session at least once per week via telemedicine. We may encourage you to consider having a family member or significant other present for some therapy sessions.
