Welcome to Thrive Integrative Psychiatry - TMS
We are thrilled to provide patients in the McMinnville, OR and surrounding Willamette Valley with cutting edge treatment for depression. Neurostar® TMS Therapy is non-drug, outpatient therapy approved by the FDA and covered by most insurance. TMS has helped thousands of patients with depression and anxiety.
TMS Therapy is the right choice
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) uses a targeted pulsed magnetic field, similar to what is used in an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machine. While the patient is awake and alert, NeuroStar TMS Therapy stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive in depression.
Thrive TMS FAQ
Does TMS work?
In our clinic, we have a 90% response rate and 80% remission rate. In research studies, TMS improved depression by at least 50% in two-thirds of patients and resulted in complete remission in one-third of patients. There is never a guarantee that TMS or any other treatment will work for you but the odds are good that it will!
Is it safe?
Yes. TMS is FDA approved, and generally well tolerated by patients. Very few side effects have been reported with TMS Therapy. Over 10,000 active treatments were performed across all NeuroStar clinical trials demonstrating its safety.
Will it last?
In research studies the majority of patients maintained their treatment response 12 months after treatment.
Does insurance cover TMS?
YES! All major commercial payers cover TMS including Tricare. There are specific criteria a patient is required to meet for approval but most patients with chronic depression meet these criteria. Our reimbursement team specializes in understanding the ins and outs of getting approval for TMS. We advocate on your behalf to make sure your insurance company covers the costs.
“When you have depression, you’re alive but you’re not really living. This was me before TMS. I was depressed and hopeless and a ball of anxiety. I didn’t have the energy or motivation to get much done and constantly felt guilty and bad about myself. I missed work, missed quality time with my kids - I was missing out on life! Since TMS all that has changed. TMS is like a miracle! I wake up feeling energized and motivated. My thought process now is ‘I can do this’, instead of ‘what’s the point?’. I no longer feel frozen with depression and anxiety and life is happening! I’m even dating again and have applied for a new job, things I never would have done during my depression. The possibilities feel endless. I would definitely recommend Thrive TMS to anyone suffering with depression and anxiety”

“Before I started TMS I would ask myself ‘why should I get out of bed’? I slept a lot because in bed, I wouldn’t kill myself. I believed I was a complete failure and constantly felt guilty. Thoughts that I would be better off dead were pretty much a daily thing. I was severely anxious, consumed with worry, tired and hopeless. Since TMS those days are gone! I’m no longer consumed with worry and sadness, I don’t think about killing myself, and things roll off my back easier. I don’t guilt myself for every little thing now and I feel more confident to just be myself. My Mother-in-law says I seem brighter and my husband says ‘you’re doing things!’. He’s right. I am doing things. You should see me dancing in my kitchen!”.
