Welcome to Blackhawk TMS Depression & Anxiety Center

We provide the most up to date treatments for depression and other concerns in the Tri-Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area. See our contact page for door to door driving directions to either of our locations.

We are pleased to be able to offer the Brainsway TMS Therapy. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy is one of the most technologically advanced depression treatments available. This non-invasive, outpatient therapy is FDA cleared and has helped thousands of depression patients who have failed to receive benefits from traditional medications.

See our Depression Self Tests page for questionnaires to rate your depression. For more information call our office and our friendly and knowledgeable staff will answer any questions you may have and help you to arrange a consultation to see if TMS therapy is right for you.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy is a safe, painless treatment for depression and certain other conditions without the use of medications. TMS uses brief, MRI strength magnetic pulses to stimulate the parts of the brain associated with the symptoms of the illness. Unlike medications, which act throughout the entire body, TMS does not cause side effects such as weight gain or sexual dysfunction. TMS can be effective even if you have failed to respond to antidepressant medications. Unlike other treatments, such as electro-convulsive therapy (ECT), TMS does not cause cognitive side effects or memory problems. No anesthesia or sedation is used, so you can drive yourself to and from treatment and even go back to work or school right after a treatment. There is no need to disrupt your usual routine.
