Greetings From Transformational Psychiatry NW in Jefferson Square Plaza!

Are you suffering from depression, anxiety, or other mental-health problems, or do you of know someone who is? It just so happens that one in five Americans experiences some kind of mental-health issue, and the need for medical care is on the rise.

Many who suffer have tried medications, but few have heard of TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation), a gentle, non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment for anxiety and depression. TMS can also be beneficial for addiction, PTSD, chronic pain, smoking cessation, migraines, tinnitus, and others. It’s available right here in West Seattle and covered by most insurance.

Some benefits of TMS include:

• No major side effects
• Non-invasive, non-surgical treatment
• No anesthesia or sedation required
• Drug-free treatment
• Covered by most insurance plans or self-pay
• Performed in office – may return to work right away

Our Mission at Transformational Psychiatry NW: We want to help transform the lives of those suffering from difficult-to-treat mental-health problems. We are excited to provide cutting-edge technology of TMS to assist in this process.

Jacqueline Marcell-Koledin, Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, and her team of certified TMS Technicians specialize in TMS and are now accepting new patients and referrals. In the heart of West Seattle, our spacious clinic is designed with social distancing and patient safety in mind. Please call us today to schedule a free consultation, at 206-673-2408, or visit our website at to find out more.

    Glad to see that this promising treatment is becoming more widely available.  What many who bemoan the lack of “mental health resources” often fail to acknowledge is that the treatment modalities themselves are woefully inadequate.  Drug treatments are especially problematic, as the side effects are often so debilitating that compliance is difficult or impossible to achieve, and with questionable benefit.  Nor do I think that talk “therapy” can be considered effective treatment, especially given the time, cost, and variance in training,  personality, and professionalism from one therapist to another.  TMS makes a lot of sense on many levels.

    An amazing group and a wonderful option for patients who need other forms of treatment.

    I agree with the above comment that TMS appears to be have a more favorable profile than in terms of side effects.  If periodic “rebooting” of the brain offers symptomatic relief – great – though I still believe talk therapy is preferable as mental illness is usually a problem of maladjustment to life’s stresses. Granted, it doesn’t work for everyone, though. Philosophically speaking, some would argue we are all on a continuum of mental illness, to a greater or lesser degree. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
