A nationally recognized expert and presenter on child, adolescent and adult psychiatry, Dr. Rachel Fleissner of Fargo, ND, is one of only a few psychiatrists in the nation who also is trained in hypnosis and neurotherapy. She believes in a holistic approach to mental health, for people of all ages.
Dr. Fleissner also is the only psychiatrist in North Dakota who is trained to treat depression with Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), an FDA approved, non-medication treatment that helps patients who have previously suffered side effects or no benefit from at least one antidepressant. TMS delivers highly focused magnetic pulses to stimulate the left side of the brain in the specific area known to be affected by depression. Patients treated by TMS remain awake, alert and return to work or their daily activities after each treatment.
Her philosophy is as follows:
- Each person is unique and those differences do not constitute illnesses.
- Parents often need to interpret the way their child sees the world to others. Dr. Fleissner teaches parents how to be their child’s interpreter.
- The strength in each person lies in their ability to harness the power of their brain.
- Dr. Rachel uses interpersonal, cognitive behavioral/mindfulness therapy, neurofeedback, hypnosis and TMS, as well as medications, to achieve each individual’s potential.
She supports the use of neurofeedback / biofeedback because it enables an individual to learn how to change physiological activity for the purposes of improving health and performance. This cutting-edge therapy has been shown to be an effective therapy technique for treating many emotional and behavioral problems, including Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, anxiety, depression and learning disabilities, for all age groups from children to adults.
Dr. Fleissner offers mood regulation and impulse control groups for adolescent and teenage boys, and she offers an educational and experiential approach to enhance judgment and critical thinking skills to promote wise and healthy choices for teenage girls. She works with her patients and their families to make sure that everyone accomplishes the happiness they deserve.
