TMS Therapy

Aspen Counseling can assist individuals and their families in finding effective solutions to cope with everyday problems. We provide transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy, an FDA-approved therapy for depression.We are always exploring new directions in the treatment of mood disorders.

What is TMS?

For some patients, medications do not work. In some cases, medications provide no relief from the symptoms of depression, and in others, the side effects experienced reduce our quality of life. TMS offers a new, evidence-based, alternative to help adults who suffer from major depressive disorder.

Brainsway TMS Therapy is treatment cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2008 for patients suffering from depression who have not achieved satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant treatment. TMS stands for Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation.

TMS Therapy is a treatment that is performed in our office under the supervision of a psychiatrist.
