Hi, my name is Kimberly Lopez, and I am a psychiatric and family nurse practitioner. I love working with all age groups, from pediatric to geriatric. I have almost two years of experience in the nurse practitioner role, but I have a little over 10 years of critical care nursing before I became a nurse practitioner. I was born and raised in Chicago, IL, where I still reside. I am the first in my family to graduate from college.

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.

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.

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.

How to find the right Psychiatrist?

If you're finding it difficult to find the right psychiatrist in Chicago, don't worry--you're not alone. Psychiatrists are highly specialized professionals. They tend to be busy--appointments can be short (e.g. 15 mins.)--and so as a potential client you can sometimes feel lost or confused. Don't let this deter you.

Begin first by checking the psychiatrists listed here nearest to you. If they are limited in number, expand out your search geographically (Broaden your Search) and see who's available further afield. Use the links in the left nav bar to find the relevant insurance, if you intend to use your health insurance to pay for the provider.

If you're still finding it difficult to find a psychiatrist in Chicago, call or contact the professionals here and ask for a psychiatric referral. You can also call the psychiatric nurses in Chicago as they tend to be affiliated to a network of psychiatrists in their area ( Chicago). Or just chat to them to see if they can help.
