  • 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 follow-up visits with a medical doctor can maintain the pain relief focus if you do see a therapist.   Listing is not considered an endorsement   updated April 2022
