I am a board certified psychiatrist with over 10 years of experience in treating adults with mood and anxiety disorders, difficulty with adjusting to life stressors, and expertise in treating individuals with eating disorders and addictions. I also have board certification in psychosomatic medicine, which is the branch of psychiatry that focuses on how the mind and body interact in illness and in stress. My goal in working with patients is to listen and connect, helping to guide effective treatment which is both evidence-based as well as in line with the values of the patient.

What are your symptoms? Anxiety, fatigue, avoidance, sleeplessness, back pain , procrastination, loneliness, anger outbursts..... All symptoms are experiences of pain (dis-ease) and/or ineffective behavior. Symptoms will occur when your "operating system" is overtaxed. My treatment approach focuses on reducing your symptoms and developing more strength and flexibility in your overall managing system, e.g., how you characteristically feel and act in the world. Due to known and as yet unknown problematic side effects of all prescription drugs, I use much safer and ultimately more powerful methods for symptom relief, prevention of recurrence and enduring health.

From time to time, our lives take an unexpected turn for the worse. We may suffer injury; succumb to physical or emotional illness , or experience conflict, loss, misfortune. Trauma and chronic disability may affect our loved ones or us. Life adversities may temporarily overwhelm our ability to carry on. We may turn pessimistic, doubtful, and hopeless. Feel demoralized, worried, and anxious. Suffer sadness, distress, and anguish. Become angry and resentful. Feel distrustful and quarrel with others. Recognize our isolation and loneliness. At such times, we could benefit from a psychiatric evaluation and treatment, including psychotherapy and prescription medicine.

Ideally, clients are seeking help on their own accord, as they are tired of their issues continuing to hold them back from experiencing life at its fullest. 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.

My experience and passion has been the field of treatment for professionals, i.e. healthcare professionals, with substance use or dual diagnoses, and their loved ones. Professionals have unique stressors and greater accountability to the public, and this can drive them underground. In our present time, these stressors have multiplied, and they may be more reluctant to ask for help in fear of losing something important to them. My experience, however, is not limited to healthcare professionals; their turmoil is the human condition.

I have had an outpatient practice for 39 years. During my residency at Michael Reese Hospital, I taught a psychiatry course to medical students. After graduation I worked at Illinois Masonic Hospital in a women's health clinic addressing the emotional needs of women. I also worked at both a nursing home and assisted living facility doing both talk therapy and medication. I enjoy working with both young and older adults from varied backgrounds. I think I am very good at making people comfortable, as many patients come in afraid of therapy. The therapy and medication is decided upon

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.
