I refer my patients to severalhighly qualified psychotherapists in the Los Angeles area. Please see the links page for their websites.
Alan Gordon, LCSW and group (Beverly Hills), Arnold Bloch LCSW (West LA and Westlake Village), Colleen Perry MFT (Santa Monica), Jessica Oifer MFT (Culver City, Sherman Oaks), Gillian Marcus MFT (West LA, Burbank), Jill Solomon (W. Hollywood) Arnold Ring, Ph.D. (Woodland Hills), and others can do excellent traditional (face-to-face) and some do telephone/SKype psychotherapy for patients whom I diagnose with TMS.
However, I do not have psychology referrals outside of the LA area, SF, Santa Barbara, Dallas and Portland.

  • Santa Barbara-- Susan Farber, MFT; see her website on links page.
  • Dallas-- Dr. Jonna Barta at 214-629-6986.
  • Portland-- Serena Sterling, PsyD is in Portland Hills at 503-336-5016.
    I suggest you speak with a TMS doctor in your geographic area for other referrals.
    I do strongly believe a diagnosis of TMS should be made by a medical doctor before beginning psychotherapy for TMS. I also believe that followup visits with a medical doctor can maintain the pain relief focus if you do see a therapist.



    The listing above is for general information only. You should consult with a local physician who knows yourclinical situation and whom you trust with regard to any physician referrals or treatment approaches.
