Washington Square Psychiatry & TMS offers individualized approaches to medication-resistant depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders
Over the past few years, we have found that TMS has been the missing element in for our treatment-resistant depression patients, bringing many of them the relief they have always sought.
We have found TMS, unlike many antidepressant medications, effectively addresses anhedonia and assists in the therapeutic process. Once the patient’s anhedonia has improved, they are more capable of benefiting from psychotherapy.
TMS is not a stand alone treatment. We collaborate with your psychotherapist or psychiatrist to provide you with treatment services in addition to the services you already receive. If you currently do not have a therapist or psychiatrist, we can work with you to make those services available.
As many of our patients have been treatment resistant for quite some time, it is important to understand that TMS does NOT entirely replace medications for many patients, but often DOES allow for significantly lower dosages of maintenance medications.
Several studies listed on our TMS Research page demonstrate peer reviewed findings in which full and durable recovery lasting over a year was achieved by over 60% of individuals who received TMS along with medication for maintenance and relapse prevention.
