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.
Yes! Most major insurances cover TMS, and we’ll work directly with your insurance provider on your behalf to help you get covered.

Providers

Jason Garner

Originally pursuing a career in law, Dr. Garner eventually switched paths and went back to school to become a doctor. He has always been interested in psychology and helping others. He grew up with a relative with severe mental illness. That experience shaped this desire and instilled his compassion for those with mental illness. It also provided him with early, informal training.

His working style with patients involves truly trying to understand their world and working alongside them in a collaborative relationship to assist them in meeting their goals. He helps patients get out of their sometimes entrenched way of thinking as he builds a treatment plan that fits with their lifestyle and supports their recovery.

Dr. Garner has always enjoyed learning about the brain. For him, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) allows another access point of healing for those suffering from mental illness. It is an additional mode of treatment to assist patients, outside the usual modes of psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy and can make a difference in helping a patient find relief.

Leonard Marinis

Dr. Leonard Marinis is a board-certified psychiatrist from the California area. He graduated from Case Western Reserve University’s School of Medicine with his doctorate before completing his psychiatry residency training at the University of California. He specializes in the depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia.

As a psychiatrist, Dr. Marinis has a patient-centric approach. He believes that understanding people’s emotional experiences and life challenges from their perspective allows him to give each individual the treatment plan that works best for them. When working with this kind of approach, having alternatives is key. Mindful Health Solutions provides alternative treatments, such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy and esketamine, as options for those who aren’t responding to medication alone.

Dr. Leonard Marinis prides himself on finding what treatment plan will work best to fit each patient’s needs, lifestyle, and preferences. He believes that provider-patient collaboration leads to even more positive results.

Angela Yuen

Dr. Angela Yuen has always been interested in the human brain and what makes people feel, think, and behave the way they do. During her undergraduate years, she majored in neurobiology with a focus on mind, brain, and behavior. Her favorite courses revolved around psychology, with one specific course being on the study of human emotions. She also had a physician mentor, who was a geriatric psychiatrist, and was able to shadow them as her interest in psychiatry grew. She applied to medical school with strong intentions towards a path to psychiatry.

Dr. Yuen has a warm and empathetic approach to her patient care. She is highly approachable, and her patients feel their concerns are truly heard. She feels privileged to have a career where she can make a difference in people’s lives. She works with the patient to create the best care plan that takes the patient’s priorities, goals, and wishes into consideration. She hopes her patients feel motivated, open to new ideas and approaches, and come with the realistic expectation that psychiatric treatment often takes a lot of time and trial of various medications and/or therapies before results can be appreciated.

Dr. Yuen sees TMS and Esketamine as great options for patients to consider when medication management and therapy alone do not provide adequate relief for depression. Patient testimonials speak to the efficacy of these interventional approaches, and she is excited to see how these treatments evolve and develop over time as accessibility to these modalities improves.

She joins Mindful Health Solutions in the Summer of 2021.

Keith Lui

Dr. Keith Lui was struck by the immediate connection he felt to patient care. He saw the comfort and reassurance doctors provided for patients, and how this difference directly impacted the patients’ disposition. After this experience, he knew healthcare was his calling, and he pivoted his career toward medicine.

Most recently, Dr. Lui treated patients at a county mental health center. As the Crisis Unit Psychiatrist, he managed and diagnosed a wide variety of psychiatric illnesses. He implemented pharmacological and psychotherapeutic treatment of hospitalized patients. He worked with patients to create the best treatment plan possible, empowering them to take active ownership in their care, as this doctor/patient partnership had a significant impact on aiding patients’ improvement.

Dr. Lui first has always been interested in Interventional Psychiatry and the opportunity to treat patients with Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS.) Having treated patients with pharmacologic plans, he saw it was sometimes difficult to find the appropriate medication regiment for patients, and even when found, patients could relapse or worsen. He saw TMS as a safe treatment with limited side effects that can create lasting improvement for patients. He also appreciates the assuagement for some cultures that may be more comfortable with procedures vs. pills.

He joined Mindful Health Solutions in the late Summer of 2019.

Kevin Rosi

During his medical school rotations, Dr. Rosi found that the ongoing nature of the psychiatrist-patient relationship enabled him to develop a more complete understanding of his patients and was heartened that this work helped them to transform their lives.

Dr. Rosi believes in building a trusting working relationship with his patients through open communication and educating them about all available modalities so treatment decisions can be made collaboratively.

Using a holistic approach that emphasizes pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic treatments, including psychotherapy, neuromodulation, and developing healthy living habits, Dr. Rosi works together with his patients toward the goals of symptom elimination and restoring health. Currently, he is seeing patients ages 14 and older.

When he’s not in clinic, Dr. Rosi enjoys hiking in the mountains, as well as playing basketball and soccer.

Rhea Singson-Tapang

Rhea Singson-Tapang found her calling for psychiatry in nursing school. One of her courses involved community nursing and she was simultaneously struck by the need for mental health care and also the stigma that could be associated with a mental illness. She had always been fascinated by how people’s minds work and how they are affected by various factors. Psychiatry allowed her to get to know the patients and help them alleviate their suffering and improve their overall quality of life.

Rhea provides holistic, cross-disciplinary treatment plans, collaborating with any other care team members for the utmost patient care and outcome, and offering emotional support to patients and their families to help her patients reach their treatment goals in a timely manner and make important decisions about their lives. She believes in taking care of her patients holistically and looking at the physical, mental, social, spiritual and psychological factors that promote wellness.

Having worked with clinics that offered both Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), Rhea has witnessed the amazing results these treatments may offer. She has seen TMS change the lives of several of her patients. She believes TMS is a helpful and effective treatment for patients who have tried other forms of depression treatments to no avail. Plus, it is FDA-approved, non-invasive and has almost no side effects.

Rhea joined Mindful Health Solutions in the spring of 2020.
