In private practice in Psychiatry since January 2000, Dr. Kimberly Cress brings her extensive experience for difficult to treat mental illnesses to Greenbrook TMS located in Sugar Land, TX and serving the Greater Houston area. A graduate from the University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio Medical School, Dr. Cress’ vast experience includes treating patients with treatment refractory depression, anxiety disorders and bipolar disorders at the Mood Disorder Center at Baylor College of Medicine. She was also involved with a variety of clinical trials and a co-author in several journal articles.

After finding patients were still struggling with depression and anxiety despite numerous medication trials and/or therapies, Dr. Cress chose to incorporate TMS therapy as a treatment option to help patients regain the quality of life they deserved – without the unwanted side effects. Dr. Cress has treated patients with TMS therapy since April 2010 and has administered over 15,000 treatments. She has completed Harvard Medical School’s Intensive Course in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation and Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation, along with completing courses at Duke University in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. Dr Cress has presented her results utilizing TMS both at the Clinical TMS Society as well as at the American Psychiatric Association. In addition, she teaches at the Clinical TMS Society's Pulses course about best practices for providing TMS.

Dr. Cress’ goal is to tailor each person’s care to live life without a mental illness. “Treating depression is an art as well as a science. It is important to listen to each person and their history to determine the most effective depression treatment plan. Why should anyone settle for just feeling ‘OK’?”
