Psychiatrists in Chicago

Daniel Ross, Psychiatric Nurse  in Chicago
Verified by Psychology Today
Psychiatric Nurse, MSN, RN, PMHNP
“It is not uncommon to find ourselves somehow off track and disconnected from who we thought we were. Our relationships may seem stuck and deeply unsatisfying. We feel lost and unsure of our place in the world. This may be accompanied by feelings of depression, anxiety or as physical problems. It can be experienced as a deep alienation, sadness and suffering. When we are called to make a change and resist, it can cause havoc in our lives; this can happen whether the change is in the outer circumstances of our life, our inner attitude, our world view, or some combination.

Kara Driscoll, Psychiatrist  in Chicago
“I am a board-certified psychiatrist with experience treating adults who have symptoms of anxiety and depression. I enjoy working with individuals who are looking to improve their emotional well-being through treatments such as talk therapy or the use of medication, when appropriate. Emotional symptoms of depression and anxiety can interfere with one's ability to live life fully, so my goal for each individual I treat is to help eliminate these symptoms in order to maximize quality of life.

David L. Goldberg, Psychiatrist  in Chicago
“I am a therapist that strives to achieve a balance in the treatment relationship that best promotes healing. I recognize the innate tendency towards health and growth while I am alert to the effects of genes and life stress/trauma on all of us. I work with a variety of age groups and individuals from diverse backgrounds. I provide individual psychotherapy as well as medication evaluation and management when it is indicated. I invest the time to get to know people and understand the context of their problems and strengths.

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.

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. Real understanding is crucial and along with the medication and symptom relief is a powerful therapeutic tool.

Ndidi Onyejiaka, Psychiatrist  in Chicago
“I emphasize a dual approach toward addressing mental health and emotional needs of both new and existing clients. The first emphasis focuses on gaining an understanding of your concerns through a "talk therapy" and listening approach. We can talk together about the possibility of introducing medication to the initial treatment or continuing mental health treatment with medication amendment to your treatment plan. I treat individuals, couples, families, and groups of all ages. I am also fluent in Spanish and welcome Spanish-speaking clients.

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

Neal Elliott Spira, Psychiatrist  in Chicago
“I'm a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst with over 30 years experience. I'm interested in treating patients who are open to the possibility that their suffering has roots in thoughts and feelings that are out of their awareness. I see patients in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, and my practice includes adults, adolescents and older children. I feel very fortunate to be able to help patients make sense out of what can seem frightening and nonsensical, and I will do my best to help you.

Rose Gomez, Psychiatrist  in Chicago
“I am a psychiatrist and addiction medicine specialist, board certified in both, who enjoys helping patients recover from everything from a mild depression to a complicated dual diagnoses, medically ill condition. I use many modalities of treatment including psychotherapy, psychopharmacotherapy and even the occasional hypnosis. I treat many professionals including physicians, attorneys, nurses and psychologists. I collaborate with EAPs, therapists, physicians and monitoring organizations whenever necessary.

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".

Alexander E. Obolsky, Psychiatrist  in Chicago
“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.

“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.

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.
