Medication not working for your depression? Want to avoid the side effects of medication?
Cutting edge NeuroStar TMS treatment is now available in Pinellas County. TMS is a treatment for depression that safely delivers magnetic pulses to areas of the brain that are responsible for mood. TMS wakes up the dormant part of your brain so you can get on with your life!
For most patients, depressive symptoms decrease or go away completely after 6 weeks of treatment with NeuroStar TMS Therapy.
What is TMS?
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) received FDA clearance in 2008 after a number of clinical studies demonstrated its safety and efficacy for treating medication-resistant depression. TMS is a noninvasive brain stimulation technology that uses electromagnetic induction.
TMS targets the area of the brain known to help regulate emotions and mood. In depressed patients the nerve cells in the pre-frontal cortex are often “frozen” or sluggish. The electrical currents produced by the magnetic fields stimulates or wakens these nerve cells. Over a period of weeks, TMS therapy has the potential to normalize your brain chemistry which can have a positive effect on your mood.
Why TMS Advantage
TMS Advantage offers a program found nowhere else in the area – we combine the most sophisticated technology available with cognitive behavioral therapy and personal care (nutrition, mindfulness, and movement) – to provide you with the best possible treatment so you can finally live your life to its fullest.

Licensed Group Counseling
During our weekly group sessions, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor will discuss ways to better incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Skills & Dialectical Behavioral Skills in your treatment plan. Group therapy is designed to give our patients resources because when we start to feel better, we have more motivation to do things and we are able to apply these skills more effectively during our treatment process to build better habits for long term gains.
Monthly Group Yoga & Lifestyle Change
Our monthly yoga group is provided to help you stay active, stay engaged and practice mindfulness.
All TMS patients receive additional maintenance sessions at no extra cost to serve as boosters and are utilized as needed for patients once they finish the program ($1,000 value)
Our Nutritionist & Registered Dietician meets with our patients every couple of weeks to discuss healthier eating habits, food for a positive mood, and dietary changes that complement overall better mental health outcomes for our patients. What we eat plays a significant role in how we feel and how it affects our mood.
Monthly Follow Ups
Every TMS patient receives 4 follow ups on a monthly basis to check in on a patient’s response to TMS treatment, evaluate the need for maintenance sessions and make sure that patients get better and stay better. Follow-up care is important for keeping the effects of TMS long-lasting, and we make sure our patients have the right resources.
