Co-founded by Dr. Chung Trinh and Dr. Yukari Kawamoto, Lighthouse Psychiatry is about changing lives and preparing individuals for the future. They combined their respective experience and passion in TMS, neuromodulation, and interventional psychiatry and commitment to mental health to establish a vision of how to best impact people’s lives in a positive way and achieve improved mental wellbeing. The fruition of that vision is Lighthouse Psychiatry, which delivers an advanced TMS treatment program which promotes an integrative methodology of mental health care.
