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.

As a Chicago native, I understand how the noise and distractions of the city can easily mask the storm brewing on the inside of us. When it is time to face ourselves, it can be difficult to know where to begin. As a Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, I want to partner with you on your journey to healing. I received my doctoral degree from Rush University and I have over 5 years of experience with child/adolescent and adult mental health disorders.

Teletherapy Psychiatrists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Illinois, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Illinois listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Illinois is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Illinois 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 Illinois 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 Illinois, 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. Illinois Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
