Board-certified child & adolescent and adult psychiatry. Trained at Northwestern University, specialized at University of California-San Diego. When working with a patient, I implement a trauma-informed approach and consider the whole picture, appreciating the power of lifestyle changes and therapy (often encouraging techniques in mindfulness and CBT) and how it uniquely affects them. It is about finding the appropriate way to treat mental health issues and being able to understand each person's journey.

Therapy can help you get relief from painful emotional symptoms and feel understood as a unique individual;you can usually achieve emotional freedom and improve your personal relationships.One can also became more productive at work and have more pleasure in life. Changing life long ways of coping that just are not working, and that are self destructive. I also tend to see patients who are at crossroad trying to deal with crises in their lives(divorce,losses,and problems in their love life). Therapy can also prevent the past from interfering with one's present life.

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.
