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.
We are a group of psychiatric nurse practitioners, clinical psychologists, social workers and therapists with nearly 100 years of experience in behavioral health care.

I care about you and want to know your story. I strive to make my patients feel heard, seen and understood and provide a compassionate, nonjudgmental presence in which patients can feel comfortable sharing their past experiences and current hopes and goals. I combine this understanding with my expertise in medicine, neuroscience and trauma informed care to come up with the best treatments possible for you.

I am a board-certified psychiatrist with a practice in downtown Chicago. My background was in engineering and business but now I am happy to be using my skills as a psychiatrist with a special interest in psychotherapy. In my practice, I seek to understand each person's struggles and work together to achieve a full and sustained recovery. For some this will include psychiatric medications, for others individual psychotherapy is most effective, and for some it will be both.

Have you been blaming yourself for the actions, behaviors or even the emotions of other people around you? You may be feeling like everything is your fault, like you are just not good enough. You feel as though your worth is only based on how you perform in school or at work, the way you look, or how much you do for others rather than WHO you are? Maybe thinking that if you’re perfect everything will be OK, having the perfect body, being the perfect student, employee, partner, friend, child or parent. If you’re perfect you won’t hurt anymore, won’t be lonely anymore, won’t be afraid anymore.
