Trusted Referral Practitioners
The providers at Mindfully Integrated Health work closely with a number of practitioners in the Scottsdale area. Several of these practitioners offer their services in the Mindfully Integrated Health offices.
Lighthouse TMS Center
LIGHTHOUSE is a unique, non-medication-based interventional psychiatric clinic. We primarily focus on the noninvasive neuromodulation TMS treatment. Our psychiatrists only do consults for appropriateness for TMS and/or other procedural-based treatments. Hence, our psychiatrists do not manage medications nor provide chronic psychiatric care. We deliver a customized approach and solution to help individuals. Our psychiatrists will coordinate care with your prescribing doctor during your TMS treatment course.
At LIGHTHOUSE, we offer a unique synergistic approach to delivering TMS therapy to further increase the intrinsic biological effects of TMS. Only at LIGHTHOUSE, our therapists are also TMS certified and deliver a customized form of therapy to our TMS patients. Our patients have the option to combine cognitive-behavioral talk therapy with the biological effects of TMS. This produces a synergistic effect yielding greater outcome not seen at other TMS clinics.
Our experienced therapists are very passionate about helping patients overcome their challenges and recapture their life. Our therapists specialize in individual, family, couples & marriage, and trauma/EMDR therapy. We see children/adolescents to adults.
