Welcome to Creative Solutions

You know how people get repeatedly stuck and hurt in relationships and don’t know what to do? I help with that. I listen to you and help you get “unstuck”. I help you figure out how to heal from your hurt and create new positive ways to do relationships.

TMS Therapy is the Right Choice

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) uses a targeted pulsed magnetic field, similar to what is used in an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machine. While the patient is awake and alert, NeuroStar TMS Therapy stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive in depression.

"After TMS, I was able to laugh again
and enjoy my life."
