Tms Clinician Coordinator
Kimi Hashimoto is currently the newest addition to the TMS team. She was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii and moved to Seattle for college. She graduated magna cum laude from Seattle University with a BS in Psychology, focusing her studies on neuroscience and health psychology. She also graduated with a minor in English literature.
Kimi was a teacher’s assistant for statistics and research methods class, where she enjoyed tutoring students on advanced SPSS and guiding them through their individual research projects. Additionally, Kimi spent over a year interning at Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics at UW as their data manager, where she was trained in DBT skills and coded for group DBT therapy sessions for adults with borderline personality disorder. She also managed a team of seven research assistants to assist in BRTC and UCLA studies regarding suicidal ideation/incidents in adolescents with borderline personality disorder. During her time at Seattle University, she did many projects and research studies regarding people with PTSD, the biological and societal factors surrounding addiction, and alternative treatments for depression, PTSD, and addiction.
The idea of treating patients with a non-invasive procedure with minimal to no side effects drew her in to TMS. Kimi loves getting to know her patients and seeing them improve with TMS treatments. She looks forward to spending more time researching new treatment protocols and helping others achieve a better quality of life. Kimi spends a lot of time conducting research on “off-label” TMS treatments for anxiety, ADHD, PTSD, and addiction. Kimi is looking to apply for doctorate programs in clinical psychology in the future.
Kimi is also a self-declared “foodie” and enjoys exploring Seattle’s restaurants. She also enjoys going to the farmers market on the weekend, going to the gym, visiting her parents, spending time with friends, and watching TV.
