Michael Swain, Psychiatrist  in Chicago
“People seek treatment, if not due to intense suffering, then perhaps due to a vague sense that happiness has eluded them. Everyone has problems of life. Psychotherapy can become an investment in working towards being more comfortable in your own skin. Though trained and experienced as a psychiatrist, I spend most of my time doing psychotherapy. I am available to do an evaluation to see what would work for you. Currently, my practice is open only to those seeking psychotherapy as well as any medication. Therapy would be once weekly.

Harry Whiteley, Psychiatrist  in Chicago
“I am a psychiatrist with many years experience. Early on I did eclectic psychotherapy and prescribed very few medications. Now I will use meds. with psychotherapy, when it's called for. I get great satisfaction from seeing a person's anxiety reduce, or their depression lift or self understanding grow. I am more interactive than many other M.D. therapists from what I hear. However it is essential to let people know I have understood them and am dedicated to that. My goal is help people feel better, function better and to learn skills to do their own problem solving.

“Over the more than two decades that I have been in practice, the field of psychiatry has undergone dramatic changes. We now have available many medications that have significantly and substantially improved the quality of life and long term functioning of numerous people. A number of psychiatrists only see their patients for brief medication management visits on a reasonably infrequent basis. This is not a model of treatment that I employ or am comfortable with.

Aarti Mehta, Psychiatrist  in Chicago
“In my practice, I strive to take a holistic approach to treatment. I focus on the biological aspects of treatment via medications when necessary, the psychological aspects of treatment via psychotherapy and the social aspects of treatment by inviting family and significant others to participate in treatment if the patient wishes. Psychiatric issues are much more complex than a single diagnosis, and I look forward the challenge of discovering the depth of each patient.

James Fisch, Psychiatrist  in Chicago
“I believe there is more to therapy than cataloguing symptoms and selecting medications. There is a person behind those symptoms who has a complex personality, multiple needs and essential relationships, all needing to be understood.

Laura Lee Anders, Psychiatrist  in Chicago
“My specialty is related to the treatment I provide instead of focusing on a specific diagnosis. I provide the comprehensive care that comes from one clinician integrating both psychotherapy and medication treatments. Many psychiatrists no longer incorporate psychotherapy into their practice and have become specialists in medication management only. Modern medication is important in the treatment of psychiatric illnesses, but psychotherapy is a scientifically proven treatment as well. Studies indicate that patients treated with the combination of these two modalities show the most improvement. The one-clinician approach also provides the convenience of "one stop shopping".

Dacia J Harrold, Psychiatrist  in Chicago
“My approach is grounded in a humble appreciation for how individuals work to create a way of life that is safe and enriching, based on an understanding that at times despite best efforts we can feel pain, sadness or anger or even wrestle with unwanted feelings or behaviors that we cannot quite name. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy can be helpful in that it allows one to incorporate a view of the past that can shed light on present struggles. It is based on the belief that we employ particular coping strategies to manage the challenges inherent in being a subject in the

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 or psychotropics. Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans and MRIs.

Some psychiatric practitioners in Chicago specialize in age groups (so check for Chicago child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Chicago). Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists or geropsychiatrists.

Other related specialties include psychopharmacology (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics and neuroimaging.

Psychiatric nurses in Chicago, or mental health nurses, specialize in nursing care for people with mental illness or mental distress. Chicago Psychiatric nurses receive training in psychological therapies (such as CBT), building therapeutic alliance with clients and dealing with challenging behavior. Importantly, they are trained to administer psychiatric medication (or 'psychiatric meds') and, in very limited ways, to prescribe meds.

Nurses monitor for side effects and responses to medical treatments and offer information on meds so that clients can make informed choices about their use.
