About Dr. Jesse Bastiaens

Dr. Bastiaens is a psychiatrist who specializes in treating people suffering from depression and anxiety spectrum disorders (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety, Panic), among other disorders. He maintains an empathetic and professional style with people, listening carefully to understand patients and their individual experience. He wants his patients to feel comfortable, heard, and supported as they work together to develop an optimal treatment plan. During medical school, Dr. Bastiaens became interested in psychiatry after recognizing how debilitating mental health issues can be for people, as well as the positive impact that treatments can make. He appreciates the meaningful and rewarding connections he develops and maintains with patients. Dr. Bastiaens also has a great passion for the brain and neuroscience – how electrical and chemical impulses can direct our thoughts, feelings, and functioning. He sees psychiatry as a rapidly growing science incorporating therapy, medications, and interventional modalities, and is glad to be a part of the movement and momentum. He is a strong proponent of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a newer advancement in psychiatry that can often help people when medications and therapy are not enough. He appreciates that it is well-tolerated, specifically tailored to each individual, and often a more precise treatment when compared to other strategies. As TMS utilizes neuroscientific principles of brain connectivity, it is expanding in the symptoms and illnesses it can treat at the forefront of the psychiatric field. Dr. Bastiaens looks forward to participating in this growth and helping patients find resilience and recovery. He joined TMS Health Solutions in the Fall of 2018.
