Denver parents open cutting-edge mental health clinic in honor of daughter

Mental Health clinic Denver

John and Karla Tartz have never worked in a mental health clinic, let alone opened their own, but they have business talking about the brain.

“We started to research things and get busy about a year ago,” said John, sitting beside his wife in the lobby of Rose NeuroSpa in Lone Tree.

“We’re finding there were so many cutting-edge treatments out there,” said Karla. “We had no idea.” The couple plans to open their mental health clinic on Aug. 8 where they’ll offer traditional and alternative care to patients such as TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) which has been proven to treat major depressive disorder.

About ‘Rose’

The couple described the clinic as a spa to take care of your brain. It’s affectionately named for their daughter.

“Rose is my daughter,” John Tartz said. “Morgan Rose.” On July 7, 2017, Morgan Tartz died from a heroin overdose. She was 20 years old.

“We decided to open this clinic to help other families deal with the devastating issues relating to mental health and related co-occurring conditions. I remember so clearly the night my beautiful daughter came into my bedroom distraught with anxiety .. not normal anxiety. We immediately got her treatments, a psychiatrist and medication. We thought we were doing the right things but this is not something that our community discussed or openly dealt with.

“She seemed like she was fine but we now realize she put on a mask to “fit” into our upper-class community. She always received good grades, was on the cheerleading team had a lot of friends … but deep down she still struggled with depression and anxiety. We didn’t see it and thought her great grades and outgoing personality meant she was “cured.”

“Well, we eventually realized that she learned how to cope with her depression – through the use of drugs. By the time we discovered this she was full-blown in addiction. We then had to navigate the even more confusing addiction and mental health field. We put her in the best hospital, sent her to the best in-patient treatment center and then helped her find a suitable sober living house. But it wasn’t enough and we lost our beautiful girl at the age of 20. In her honor, we want to open clinics in our communities to help individuals and families deal with depression. We want to open the conversation about mental health and bring a spa-like clinic into our communities throughout Colorado.”

What Does TMS Therapy Treat? TMS therapy treats a multitude of mental health conditions. It is indicated for multiple conditions, and more research is published every day. There are specific areas of the brain involved in mood regulation, and stimulating these areas can improve the brain’s ability to regulate mood.
