Our clinic has a team of world-class, licensed and board-certified professionals ready to get you on a treatment plan to manage your depression. 

What is Depression?

Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. Also called major depression, major depressive disorder or clinical depression, it affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. You may have trouble doing normal day-to-day activities, and depression may make you feel as if life isn’t worth living.

Treatment

Numerous depression treatments are available. Medications and psychological counseling (psychotherapy) are very effective for most people. Your psychiatrist can prescribe medications to relieve depression symptoms. However, many people with depression also benefit from seeing a psychologist or other mental health counselor.

We are currently offering Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) as a treatment option for depression.

For decades, researchers have sought safe and effective treatments for depression. There is no single depression treatment which has been proven to work for everyone. While depression is often treated with antidepressant medications and psychotherapy, many patients have treatment-resistant depression that does not respond to these first and second line treatments.  

For these patients, alternative treatments are available. These depression therapies have been shown to work in people who do not receive benefit from medications or cannot tolerate the side effects caused by them. One alternative therapy for the treatment of depression is transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). TMS has been approved by the FDA for patients suffering from depression who have not achieved satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant medications.
