I decided to look into TMS after speaking to my therapist. And I found active recovery TMS as the only option in Portland outside of one of the local hospitals that didn’t accept my insurance. So I called Doctor Horey and had a nice conversation with him he alleviated some of my fears. And I went back to my therapist and mentioned that I looked into TMS. I’ve been an athlete in my past life as I saw it and I felt like I was very successful within my profession and I just had a really hard time being at the top of my game. I tried many different types of medication and none of them seemed to get me back to my old self if you will. So I thought I might as well look into things that were alternative to medication.I’m so glad I made that call to Doctor Horey because Active Recovery has really set me on a path and I feel I got some good momentum going forward.
