Esha Kacker
Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, PMHNP
Verified
I had a desire to help individuals get to the root of their problem, which was often related to their mental health but was not addressed during their treatment. It was common for me, while working as a nurse, to interact with patients who were often unaware of their mental health conditions and would seek treatment for other physical ailments, while neglecting their mental health care. This often happened as a result of the stigma associated with seeking treatment for mental health.

I appreciate that a healthy mind is vital for optimal functioning and quality of life. I want to empower you to build something purposeful and I believe this is done with attention to mind, body, environment, and connection. We are fortunate to be in a time where treatments for mental health are rapidly developing – I specialize in ketamine which has psychedelic-like benefit and is available for current use. Not only can it work quicker than traditional medications, but it induces a non-ordinary state of consciousness which promotes flexible though process. I encourage you to ask whether this might be part of your treatment.

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