New TheraMind© Center of Chicago located in landmark Willoughby Tower
Chicago, IL, July 10, 2019 — TheraMind Services, Inc., a leading provider of advanced health care treatments for neurological and behavioral disorders, is pleased to announce the opening of their new Chicago outpatient treatment center, which is centrally located in the Historic Michigan Avenue District, at 8 S. Michigan Avenue in the landmark Willoughby Tower. The 36-story Willoughby Tower, located just across from Grant Park and “The Bean,” is home to an array of renowned regional healthcare and nonprofit organizations.
Medical direction at the new Center is provided by Dr. Dawna Gutzmann, a graduate of Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, who has over 20 years of experience treating patients with mood disorders and who has been affiliated with TheraMind Services, Inc. at the TheraMind Center of Skokie since 2014.
Treatment options available at the new TheraMind Center of Chicago include, in addition to traditional psychiatric services, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a non-invasive, FDA-approved, high tech therapy which uses rapid magnetic pulses to stimulate nerve cells in the area of the brain known to control mood. TMS treatments are outpatient procedures requiring no anesthesia or sedation and are covered by most healthcare insurers and Medicare for depression.
“Our expansion into major cities like Chicago is being driven by demand for non-drug alternatives for individuals dealing with anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders,” said TheraMind Services, Inc. President Mark Heatwole. “TMS has been demonstrated to be a highly effective therapy for treating patients suffering from depression which is not adequately managed by antidepressants. It’s not surprising, therefore, that patients are seeking the innovative medical solutions TheraMind is known to deliver. In the greater Chicago area, we serve the north and northwestern communities through our Centers in Skokie and Vernon Hills and we are delighted to now be able to offer our most advanced behavioral therapies to the downtown Chicago community.”
