A Letter from Our President, Chief Scientific Officer & Partner
Welcome to GIA Chicago.
At GIA, we understand that mental wellness is our most precious resource. Achieving mental wellness not only has a positive impact on ourselves, but improves our work, our daily performance, and benefits all the people around us.
Today we all know too well how the recent COVID-19 pandemic has put our mental balance at serious risk. As a consequence of the pandemic, the number of people reporting anxiety, depression, mental fatigue and addictions have skyrocketed in many U.S. communities and nations around the globe.
I have dedicated my entire life to studying the mechanisms underlying stress and addictions and to create novel therapies to treat these conditions, which affect the very essence of our being. I am pleased to say that the progress made by medicine and neuroscience in the last 20 years has been nothing short of extraordinary. Technologies such as CRISPR and optogenetics have revolutionized science and medicine, giving us hope to treat conditions that previously seemed otherwise hopeless, from a therapeutic standpoint.
One example of technological innovation in medicine pioneered by GIA is transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). Our exclusive TMS methods are designed to treat a broad range of mental health conditions, from anxiety to depression to substance use, addictions, and more. In the U.S., TMS is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treating depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and for quitting smoking. In Europe, TMS recently received approval for the treatment of addiction and depression with co-occurring anxiety. TMS is also used at GIA and around the world as an effective off-label treatment for many other conditions, including sleep problems, cognitive performance, dementia, and more.
I created GIA Chicago for one reason: to offer all of our clients a renewed sense of freedom and control over their lives and their destinies. Freedom to laugh, to feel joy, to enjoy and express their passions, and make the best and healthiest decisions for themselves and their loved ones.
We live in a fast-paced society that presents unprecedented challenges to our mental wellbeing. However, in many medical clinics, brief interactions with doctors and practitioners are the norm, even for people who are dealing with the most challenging mental health conditions. GIA is different. We know that the process of achieving mental wellness cannot be rushed.
At GIA, we have harnessed innovations in psychological, neurological, and psychiatric therapies, together with non-invasive brain stimulation, to achieve long-lasting solutions for our clients and empower them to meet all of their needs and challenges. We offer the most comprehensive science, medicine, and evidence-based therapies in an outpatient setting, to help anyone dealing with mental wellness concerns.
Our team has more than 100 years of combined experience in the mental health sector. We can’t wait to show you what GIA can do for you. As a GIA client, you will enjoy extended time with compassionate neurological and mental wellness professionals. Our GIA team is devoted to fully exploring your needs and to becoming your partners on your wellness journey. We will work with you to design and tailor an individualized, state of-the-art therapeutic plan to achieve your mental wellness goals.
