Dr. Peralta graduated from the University of Nebraska College of Medicine in 2007 and completed her psychiatry training at San Mateo County Residency Program in California. Dr. Peralta has been board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology since 2011.
Dr. Peralta has a heart for helping others. She is passionate about providing exceptional, thorough, and compassionate patient care. “I want to see my patients thrive and have a great quality of life. When creating an individualized care plan, I am optimistic and determined to find the most beneficial treatment for each patient”.
However, after several years of treating patients, she noticed that while some were better and others improved, some patients, despite optimal medication management and therapy, continued to struggle. Despite all her training, knowledge, and experience, there were too many patients for whom these traditional approaches failed to sufficiently alleviate symptoms. Dr. Peralta sought to offer a solution – without the side effects of more medications or electroconvulsive therapy (ECT).
TMS is that solution. TMS is a highly effective, non-invasive treatment for treatment-resistant depression. Many studies and active research have validated the current and potential benefits offered by TMS. The FDA has also granted a breakthrough device designation for NeuroStar TMS system for the treatment of Bipolar Depression. There are also a number of ongoing studies researching TMS for treatment of Anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, Parkinson’s Disease and Alzheimer’s Disease.
Dr. Peralta is thrilled to be able to offer this innovative treatment to patients in Northern Colorado.
