Therapy & Counseling
Talk therapy can be an alternative to medication or in combination. You will share your current problem, symptoms, and medication history. The licensed Psychologist, Therapist, or Counselor are trained in techniques to help you identify and change troubling emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. Even when medications relieve symptoms, psychotherapy and other interventions can address specific issues. These might include self-defeating ways of thinking, fears, problems interacting with other people, or dealing with home, school, or work situations.
Our counselors are here to help you identify where you are having difficulties and provide coping skills and techniques to improve how you feel. Our team of therapists manage their own appointment schedules, please call them directly to introduce yourself and make an appointment
The right match is important. Choose one with whom you feel comfortable and at ease. Most psychologists agree that an essential factor is the therapist’s credentials and competence in the area for which you are seeking help. After establishing competence, then it is your level of personal comfort and having a good rapport. For more information, from the American Psychiatric Association, How to Choose a therapist.
The counselor or psychologist will commonly ask you why you have come to see them. In this appointment, they establish your motivations, a bit of your history, your family’s mental health history, how you see yourself, and the problems you are dealing with and will start to formulate a treatment plan.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) uses a targeted pulsed magnetic field, similar to an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machine. NeuroStar TMS Therapy stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive in depression. TMS is performed under supervision while the patient remains awake and alert. Patients do not require sedation and return to their daily routine immediately after each 19-minute treatment. TMS of Central Florida is located within the Mental Health Management Group’s Brandon, FL office building and is a partnership between Dr. Charles DeVine, M.D., and Dr. Troy Noonan, M.D. To find out if this treatment is right for you, contact TMS of Central Florida.
