Our Approach

Our program is dedicated to the use of treatments that have a solid foundation in scientific evidence, referred to as “evidence-based.” It is essential to offer treatments that are well-known to work for your condition, and our program has made significant contributions to the scientific understanding of how medications and TMS work in the brain, and how to best use these treatments.

At the same time, this understanding is evolving rapidly, especially for treatments such as TMS and ketamine. A major goal of our program is to implement these innovations as the evidence builds, and ultimately to contribute to these advances.

“Your relentless search, striving to understand, to eradicate, brings a new hope to what so often seems hopeless. As a patient highly resistant to drugs, this approach offers particular hope. And it offers hope too for my daughter and my daughter’s daughter – for all who live under a shadow of pending depression. I thank you for allowing me to participate in this program, I applaud your efforts and pray for your success.”

Clinical Conditions That We Treat

Depression

Depression is very common and can take many forms. It is essential to have a thorough evaluation in order to reach an accurate diagnosis, as this will determine how to choose the best treatment of the many that are available. Treatment-resistant depression (TRD) is a special form of depression where individuals do not experience adequate relief with conventional treatments. We can offer these individuals considerable expertise in the use of TMS, esketamine, and medication combinations to achieve better outcomes.

Bipolar-Spectrum Conditions

Many individuals who experience depression also experience clinical states referred to as mania or hypomania. These persons should be carefully distinguished from those who experience depression alone (unipolar depression) because the treatments and other considerations may be very different. We offer a thorough evaluation to establish an accurate diagnosis so that the right treatment can proceed.

Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety is quite common, and like depression, there are diverse treatments available. We treat individuals with anxiety syndromes such as post-traumatic stress, panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Psychotic Disorders

Conditions such as schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, and related conditions require long-term, ongoing care. Medications are a mainstay for these conditions, though psychosocial interventions can offer additional benefit. We have recognized expertise in the use of antipsychotic medications to relieve the more serious symptoms and support well-being.
