Success TMS was inspired by Alex - a beautiful, vibrant, smart and ambitious woman.
My passion is helping people with DEPRESSION. I want my patients to feel empowered because their symptoms leave them feeling powerless. One of my most important roles as a psychiatrist is to instill hope for my patients. Depression is treatable, and with TMS therapy along with medication management, we have even more options for patients who struggle.

I work primarily with individuals, providing psychotherapy (talk therapy) and medication when needed. I also see couples (gay or straight) who are either in distress, or just trying to improve their communication skills. Much of my experience has involved helping women with depression, relationship problems, parenting or medical illness. I have friends, students and colleagues from a variety of backgrounds. As a university assistant professor I teach what I practice (and vice versa). And as a parent I understand first-hand the challenges of this (sometimes) impossible job!

I have come across many individuals that are currently going through mental health problems and requires guidance to get help or to be treated. Mental health is as important as other medical issues. Mental health plays an important role in the way we deal with daily life stress, how we relate to others, and the decisions that we make reflects to our daily lives. Without positive mental health, it will be almost impossible to realize your full potential, work productively, make a meaningful contribution to yourself and a family, or handle the stress that comes with life.

They may be noticing that maintaining their life as they once knew it is becoming more challenging, and feel like it might be time for some assistance. They may be seeking someone to speak to, someone to prescribe medication, and likely both. They know that getting help is not always easy, but they are willing to take the first step.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Chicago is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Chicago Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication as well as practice psychotherapy in treatment. Sometimes, Psychiatrists form part of a clinical team in which they will diagnose and prescribe, while psychologists or therapists provide the client's psychotherapy.

As part of a clinical assessment, Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, take blood tests, and order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans, and MRIs.

The field of psychiatry in Chicago has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.

Other related sub-specialties include cognition psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, psychosomatic, forensic, reproductive medicine specialties, psychopharmacology , psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Chicago, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Chicago Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
