Mental Health Matters


David Penner MD

“You are most likely reading this because something has you concerned enough to seek outside help. I have yet to meet a patient I believe is “faulty” because of his or her condition. My goal is to help patients and their families take charge by utilizing their strengths to change and adapt in ways that will improve their lives…” – Dr. Penner

Dr Penner is a Harvard trained psychiatrist who is Board Certified as a Diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in both Psychiatry and the Subspecialty of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.

He was fortunate enough to work with, and be educated by, some of the best mentors and teachers in the field. Dr. Penner is collaborative with treatment decisions, making sure that you receive the treatment that you need and feel comfortable with the process. A native of South West Washington, his Olympia practice has been serving the needs of clients in the greater south sound region since 2011.

How Can We Help You?

Our work is dedicated to getting people better, leading higher quality lives, and to remove the barriers keeping people from being themselves.

Our practice is not taking any new patients currently, unless they qualify, or may soon may qualify, for TMS Therapy. This requires an existing diagnosis of Depression. We do offer medication management during the 8 weeks a patient is receiving TMS treatments.

We decided to be the first in Olympia to offer TMS treatment. We have seen patients that have struggled for years with depression not responsive to medication have an amazing response and were able to make it to their treatments outside of work. Contact us at 360-539-1736, option 2.

If you have an L&I claim with an approved diagnosis of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or Major Depressive Disorder, there is a quick screening process. You can inquire with our L&I specialist at 360-539-1736, option 4. All calls are responded to within 24 hours.
