For psychotherapists, see Therapists Page

NB: I suggest you speak with a TMS doctor in your geographic area for other referrals. I strongly believe a diagnosis of TMS should be made by a medical doctor before beginning psychotherapy for TMS. I also find 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
