Psychotherapy, also known as known as talk therapy,” is when a patient talks about their emotional issues with a psychiatrist, psychologist, or therapist. It’s important to know that not everyone who gets psychotherapy has a mental illness. Many famous and successful people have turned to psychotherapy while going through rough times in their lives.
At the Advanced TMS Center, a caring and gentle psychotherapist can help you learn about your feelings, thoughts and behaviors. Psychotherapy offers people hope by teaching them healthy coping skills for challenging situations. Sometimes psychotherapy can be more effective than medications, and sometimes psychotherapy is used with medications.

Psychotherapy is often used to help people who are dealing with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), mood disorders (bipolar), depression, eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia), addiction to drugs or alcohol, personality disorders (borderline personality), psychotic disorders (schizophrenia) and more.
Psychotherapy can help people with family conflicts, work anxiety, death of a loved one, divorce or breakup, passive-aggressive behavior, physical or sexual abuse, sleeping problems and other issues. Psychotherapy may be short-term, or longer, depending what type of issues people are facing.
It’s incredibly important that patients feel comfortable divulging personal information to the therapist. Patient confidentiality, informed consent and duty to warn are important parts of psychotherapy.
We focus on communicating and creating a dialogue with our patients. We do not see ourselves as judges of behavior or thoughts, but rather as a support system to help our patients reach their goals and improve their lives.

Therapists at Advanced TMS Center, as well as psychiatrists, use a “whole person” or collaborative team treatment approach. With your written permission, your therapist or psychiatrist can fax or securely transmit notes or other data to other members of your treatment team, even if they are across town in different practices. This is called “coordination of care” and is actually recommended by insurance and licensing entities. You of course, have the right to decline or revoke permission for sharing information with embers of your treatment team. However, fully coordinated care will provide the safest, and most efficient treatment possible and is strongly recommended.
