Deep TMS

Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a newer treatment for Depression and OCD. This non-invasive technique uses magnetic waves to stimulate the brain, which can provide much-needed relief for those with mental health conditions. It is generally well-tolerated, and Dr. Janik has found that patients often experience symptom improvements within a few weeks of beginning treatment. Deep TMS works best when combined with other therapies, such as psychotherapy and medications, making it an essential part of multi-faceted recovery plans. With its ability to target specific areas of the brain without disruption to daily activities, many people are now opting for this more modern approach to treating their mental health issues. Suppose you have been considering Deep TMS as a potential treatment option. In that case, it’s essential to discuss it with your doctor – they can explain its benefits for your particular situation in greater detail.  Deep TMS Psychiatrist - Kansas City TMS

TMS, short for Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, is an FDA-approved alternative to medication that helps treat Depression without the side effects of weight gain, loss of sleep, decreased libido, or fogged thinking. Deep TMS takes it a step further by reaching deeper (limbic) areas of the brain that impact mood regulation and motivation. This level of precision can make all the difference for those with depression or obsessive-compulsive disorder symptoms. Despite being a non-medication option, research shows that those using TMS had a measurable improvement in their overall quality of life faster than traditional treatment protocols. If you or someone you know is struggling with Depression or OCD, talk to your doctor about Deep TMS as an effective, non-invasive treatment option.

At Interpersonal Psychiatry, we take pride in our extensive experience with deep TMS, offering patients the best care possible. We have been providing these services longer than any other local facility, so you can rest assured that our team is well-versed and prepared to assist you. Our compassionate and respectful approach to providing deep TMS makes it a safe and comfortable healing process for our patients. We make sure that everyone feels supported throughout the entire treatment program. Deep TMS is available at both Lawrence and Kansas City locations of Interpersonal Psychiatry to make access more convenient.

What Is Deep TMS Treatment Like?

Interpersonal Psychiatry offers a Deep TMS treatment that is safe and comfortable. Patients can expect to wear a helmet, with the sensation of treatment feeling like a light tapping on the side of the head. The duration of each session will depend on the patient’s needs and can take up to 20 minutes. To ensure safety and comfort for all, both equipment and chairs are adequately sanitized between patients. With fast, comfortable, and safe treatments available at Interpersonal Psychiatry, you can have peace of mind when seeking mental health care services.


Deep TMS treatment is an effective therapy that can be tailored specifically to your needs. While many clients complete their Deep TMS treatment over nine weeks with 40 sessions, our psychiatrists and nurses work diligently to create a personalized timeline based on each individual’s goals. With this in mind, most of our clients report positive results with Deep TMS, returning them to the activities they enjoy as quickly as possible.

Ketamine Infusion Therapy & Spravato

For patients with Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, and other psychiatric disorders, Ketamine infusions may provide a much-needed lifeline. As a treatment, the effects of Ketamine infusion sets in almost immediately, with studied relief for up to 80% of individuals. Perhaps most impressively, these effects can become apparent after as few as 1-2 infusions. Revolutionary in its capacity to offer quick relief from neuropsychological ailments, many people have found success through this treatment process. ketamine - kansas city - infusions - treatment

Ketamine-assisted treatments relieve individuals from severe depression or mental health issues with minimal side effects predicted to last for two hours or less. As we understand that receiving accessible and affordable long-term care can be difficult, we pledge to help by customizing a treatment plan tailored to your mental health needs and financial criteria. While treatments provided through IV may not be covered under insurance, providers often pre-authorized nasal spray treatments. Explore our combination of ketamine-assisted services, such as ketamine integration therapy and ketamine-assisted psychotherapy, for optimal care results.

What Are Ketamine Infusions?

Ketamine infusions are quickly becoming the most promising treatment for various psychiatric disorders, among them Depression, Anxiety, and PTSD. Whereas traditional medications can take weeks or months to commence working with moderate success in only four out of every ten patients, the effects of ketamine infusions can be felt within hours by eight out of every ten people. In addition to relieving symptoms for a more extended period than other treatments have been able to provide in the past, studies have shown that ketamine also has fewer potential side effects, such as nausea or dizziness. This revolutionary new approach offers hope to those who have suffered from conditions such as depression or PTSD for years with no improvement in sight.

Rapid relief with Ketamine Infusions: Patients may feel relief from their symptoms within 1-2 infusions.

Minimal Side Effects: Ketamine side effects are minimal and typically last less than 2 hours post-infusion.

Insurance and Payment: Most insurance plans are accepted.

Cash payments are also available.

What Happens During An Infusion?

Infusion therapy is an advanced procedure that requires precise monitoring to provide the best care possible. During an infusion, practitioners observe a patient’s heart rate, pulse, blood oxygen saturation percentages, and blood pressure from the nursing station.

Using an IV, the appropriate dose of ketamine will be administered over a 40-minute time frame or longer. Throughout the active phase of infusion treatment, practitioners often enter the patient treatment room multiple times to monitor the depth of sedation and comfort.

Most patients report a peaceful experience with changes in vision and ability to focus on objects or people, slurred or slowed speech, and feeling disconnected or floating.

Our program helps to make this transition easier by integrating these insights into everyday life.

What is SPRAVATO®?

Studies have shown that SPRAVATO effectively lifts symptoms of severe depression and allows users to restore their daily lives. If you have had difficulty finding adequate relief from your current MDD, SPRAVATO could be the answer you’ve been looking for.

Interpersonal Psychiatry, our certified treatment center, provides a safe and comfortable environment for patients to receive ketamine/private treatments. During the initial visit with one of our providers, all necessary information regarding the SPRAVATO REMS program and insurance coverage will be discussed.

We do not take this responsibility lightly, dedicated to ensuring that patients receive the best outcomes possible. After finding out what plan works best for their needs, each patient will come in for a two-hour treatment session, monitored throughout the entire process.

Due to the potential side effects of SPRVATO, we recommend that each patient arrange a ride beforehand since they won’t be allowed to drive home after the session. We look forward to helping individuals during their journey toward recovery.

Psychiatric Medication Management

It would be best if you worked closely with your prescriber so that both of you could create a successful treatment plan. Your active involvement in the process is necessary. It would be best if you were prepared to discuss any recommended medications’ positive effects and side effects and focus on setting realistic goals with your doctor.

Additionally, it’s essential to be aware of any potential interactions between your medication and other substances, such as alcohol, and any risks or benefits associated with long-term use. Communication between you and your prescriber is vital to ensure each journey step is explicitly tailored to meet your unique needs for success.

Testing Services

Testing is vital in receiving the most effective treatment outcome for whatever health issues you may be facing. By understanding the root cause of your condition, we can provide an accurate diagnosis and determine what treatment(s) would be most beneficial to your individual needs. At our facility, we utilize the latest technology and research to assess underlying factors and recognize potential treatments that offer patients their best chance for an improved quality of life.

Conners Testing for ADHD

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common childhood disorders, with symptoms ranging from difficulty paying attention to difficulty controlling behavior and hyperactivity. Although symptoms can be present as early as three to six years of age, they can also continue into adolescence and adulthood, making proper diagnosis essential.

Unfortunately, identifying ADHD in children is also complicated because quiet, well-behaved children are often overlooked, leading to a delay in diagnosis. Similarly, adults with undiagnosed ADHD may have difficulties functioning in everyday life because they lack awareness of their condition.

Early detection is critical to the successful intervention and management of ADHD. It can involve medication and psychological treatments such as counseling or behavior therapy, so it should not be left untreated.

Generic Testing

If you suffer from mental health challenges, going through a long trial-and-error process with multiple medications can be overwhelming and exhausting. With Interpersonal Psychiatry’s GeneSight PGx testing, you don’t need to experiment with different treatments – the test provides your doctor with specific information about the most suitable medicines for your needs. By taking a small DNA sample, GeneSight can quickly identify which medications would best benefit you, so you can start experiencing much-needed relief immediately. This precise form of genetic testing is safe and straightforward, allowing you to get back on track to optimal mental health without hassle.
