General Information

We’re a team of clinicians and staff who have dedicated our lives to research, education, and treating those with mental health conditions. We’re especially passionate about helping those with Treatment-Resistant Depression and providing the most advanced therapies available, including Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and esketamine nasal spray, both FDA-approved for advanced depression.

Mental health conditions can be profoundly painful and isolating, making it difficult to seek help. Our team provides a unique, patient-centered experience to help you find the appropriate treatment and relief from your symptoms. We’re grateful to be practicing psychiatry during this era in which there are so many new treatment possibilities and new hope for those with mental health conditions.

Antidepressants are invaluable aids in the treatment of clinical depression and other mood disorders, but they’re not for everyone. According to the World Journal of Psychiatry, antidepressants don’t improve symptoms in 10–15 percent of people with depression and only partially improve symptoms in 30–40 percent. Also, many people experience side effects from antidepressants that can impact their overall well-being. On the other hand, TMS therapy has shown significantly better results than antidepressants with a small risk of experiencing mild, short-term side effects. One in two patients treated with TMS had a 50% reduction in their symptoms and about 30% of patients experience full remission, which means that their symptoms go away completely. While most patients begin to show improvement after two to three weeks of TMS treatments, it can take up to six weeks to achieve the maximum benefits. It is important to understand that mental health treatment plans are not a one-size-fits-all situation. Treatment plans may take longer or require different treatment option combinations to work best for certain patients. It is important for patients to communicate clearly with their provider about how their treatment plan is working. Collaboration between patient and provider can greatly impact the results of a patient’s wellness journey.
TMS is a safe treatment. While it is a relatively new mental health treatment, it was FDA-approved for the treatment of depression in 2008. Since then, there have been millions of individual treatment sessions performed in the United States. Our clinicians who administer TMS treatments are professionally trained and put each patient’s comfort first. TMS treatments do not hurt during or after each session. There are very few side effects of TMS therapy. Most side effects are mild and short-lasting, and can include: headaches, sleepiness, lightheadedness, scalp discomfort, twitching or tingling of the facial muscles. Many patients find the headpiece to be uncomfortable on their scalp and mild headaches are common during the first few treatments, but these generally go away within the first two weeks as people get used to the sensation. Patients rarely drop out of TMS because of side effects. More serious side effects happen very rarely, but can consist of: seizures, hearing problems from the loud clicking noise that occurs. during treatment, mania, which is more likely to occur if an adolescent has bipolar disorder However, our expert providers will use their professional knowledge to help avoid serious side effects like the ones listed above. Generally, patients will feel just like their normal selves. They will be able to drive and go back to their regular activities. Some people report feeling a little tired or having a mild headache, but that usually goes away after the first week or two. Other people report more energy and better focus, as well as the ability to ignore obsessive, anxious thoughts after treatment.
TMS delivers localized electromagnetic pulses to the prefrontal cortex, which is the area of your brain that regulates mood. These electromagnetic pulses stimulate neurons, which release neurotransmitters and hormones such as serotonin and dopamine. Depression and other mental health conditions are linked to an imbalance of these neurotransmitters. TMS for depression works to restore that balance and can provide a more lasting impact on relieving depression symptoms than other treatments, such as antidepressants. During a TMS treatment, the patient sits in a comfortable chair while the TMS coil is properly set in place on their head. (While this may sound intimidating, it really isn’t!) After the headpiece is in place, electromagnetic pulses are sent to the prefrontal cortex, which is the area of the brain responsible for mood. While the pulses are being sent to the brain, patients can watch TV, listen to music, or talk with our staff. If they want and are comfortable, they can also have a friend or family member in the room with them during their TMS treatment session. Each treatment lasts about 20-30 minutes. The full course of treatment of TMS for depression will generally be five days a week for four to six weeks. We know that coming in five days a week for weeks on end is a commitment, but the results could impact your mental well-being for a lifetime.
Anxiety is sometimes treated with TMS, along with migraines and OCD. There is evidence that TMS may help for schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, certain types of chronic pain, smoking cessation, PTSD, and autism in adults. There is also evidence TMS may help in recovery from stroke. There is evidence that it may help in mild dementia and certain other neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis may benefit as well.

Margaret Foulk

Margaret Foulk is part of our Marietta clinic team as a Licensed Professional Counselor. She typically likes to incorporate CBT, DBT, solution-focused therapy, and mindfulness in working with adults with Depression, Anxiety, Adjustment Disorder, and other mood disorders. She is also a certified rehabilitation counselor and specializes in working with individuals with all types of disabilities.

In her own words, her approach to therapy is authentic, warm, strengths-based, and collaborative. As a practitioner, she believes that the patient is the expert on their own life, and she views therapy as an opportunity for the patient to collect a myriad of tools with which they can heal themselves. She believes the therapeutic alliance is where healing starts and makes it the main goal to show up as her authentic self during each session. She strives to work with patients who are motivated to be active participants and are open to new ideas and techniques.

She joins Mindful Health Solutions because of our evidence-based practice and will be providing psychotherapy to our patients. She enjoys a patient-first approach and wants to work with patients to find what treatment option will work best for them. Margaret worked as a TMS technician prior to getting her Master’s degree, and watching how the treatment transformed people’s lives was exceptionally rewarding to her. She believes in the treatments and how they are minimally invasive, and offer a reduction in side effects compared to traditional medications.

Brian Cooke

Dr. Brian Cooke is a board-certified psychiatrist who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders. He is focused on telemedicine appointments, which he finds patients appreciate for the flexibility and convenience, enabling them to receive treatments from where they are.

His favorite part of psychiatry is listening to his patients, which helps him work with patients and formulate a treatment plan. He has seen how untreated symptoms of mental illness can interfere with all the aspects of a person’s health. He finds it amazing to help patients recover and return to normal functioning. 

Dr. Brian Cooke views the doctor-patient relationship as a collaboration. For him, this is the foundation of clinical care and can have a profound impact on a patient’s recovery and relief from suffering. With a strong academic background, he can educate a patient on their treatment options and work with his patients to make positive changes. 

While focused on telepsychiatry and treatments utilizing medications, he recognizes not all patients will respond to medications alone or may struggle with side effects. He sees Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and esketamine nasal spray as two treatment options for depression that have proven effective for the right patients. 

Mark Hessenthaler

Dr. Mark Hessenthaler’s array of experience includes psychopharmacology, Mindfulness Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for insomnia and nightmares. He enjoys collaborating with his patients to find the optimal modalities of treatment to assist in their recovery.

Dr. Hessenthaler first started utilizing Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) while working for the Department of Defense. He was treating Active Duty Members with Major Depression refractory to antidepressant medications. Intrigued by the positive response his patients were having to TMS, he knew it was a treatment he wanted to incorporate further, as more research explored clinical disorders such as PTSD and OCD.

Joy Mitchell

Joy Mitchell is a Psychotherapist with a focus in Anxiety, Depression, Conflict management, Life transitions, Trauma, Women issues, and Post-partum treatment. She works with young adults, teens, families and couples. She is passionate about helping her clients navigate challenging times, discover their purpose, work through grief, figure out school/work and life balance, and develop healthy relationships.

As a Psychotherapist, she has had a lot of success helping her couples learn to fight fair, develop new tools to communicate, and rediscover what it’s important in the relationship. No topics are off-limits for her when it comes to talking with her patients and getting to the root of their situations and issues.

Joy Mitchell is committed to making sure each patient she works with gets the help they need, and the treatment knowledge that can help them along the way. Therapy alongside other treatments such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and esketamine can help give patients a wide variety of options in order to find what works best to help them as an individual.

Katie Noll

Katie Noll is Licensed Clinical Social Worker working with our Marietta clinic as a Psychotherapist.

Jasmine Kincaid

Jasmine Kincaid is a Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC, joining Mindful Health Solutions as a Psychotherapist. She specializes in working with teenagers and addressing adjustment, Depression, Anxiety, and Mood disorders with them. She approaches her style of therapy as a caring, warm conversation and activities to break up the conversation so that patients can grow in a different (and more creative) way. She is person-centered and strengths-based in her approach to therapy. She strives to be right beside each individual on their journey to increased mindfulness and growth. She utilizes cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, mindfulness-based counseling, and attachment theories in a relatable and more digestible context.

As a Psychotherapist, she believes that therapy is something that people need alongside whatever treatments they’re currently doing or starting to receive for their conditions. In her eyes, a collaborative approach to mental health when needed is the best way to go about treatment, because no one should settle with “almost” feeling better. In her experience, she learned “cold-turkey” medication use is not best for everyone, and alternative treatments like Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy and esketamine treatments, alongside therapy, provide the best results when working as a combination of treatment methods.

To Jasmine Kincaid, the ideal patient would be willing to build a therapeutic alliance to develop new skills and insights into their life, because they are the experts. They are willing to grow and implement change not only for each one-hour session but in day-to-day life where change matters. She hopes to work on a one-on-one basis with each patient, and ensure they have the tools they need, and that work best for them as an individual.
