Dr. Kleinman's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Kleinman "I grew up in the Midwest and have lived in New York City for college, Chicago for medical school and Seattle for residency. I enjoyed my experience in Chicago so much that I chose to return to Chicago to begin my career. I went to medical school to be a pediatrician, but realized that my lifelong interest in understanding people's emotions and behavior made me better suited working in psychiatry. During my residency, I learned CBT, DBT, and basic psychodynamic principals for psychotherapy, but as time went on, I found myself drawn to learning about Object Relations Psychoanalytic theories. When I returned to Chicago, I was able to fulfill my goal of running an outpatient psychiatry clinic. Several years later, I decided to make a career change by entering private practice. Now I run a practice that is 90% psychotherapy and 10% medication management, a breakdown that matches my larger interests."
This content was provided by Dr. Kleinman "I am a psychiatrist who works primarily as a psychotherapist. I practice psychodynamic, transference-focused psychotherapy, which is a new-generation form of psychoanalysis that blends elements from cognitive-behavioral therapy. Ultimately, I believe my role is to help bring clarity to a challenging emotional situation. Along the way, I can help patients consider pharmacologic treatments that may be helpful, being mindful of the further challenges that may arise from the treatment itself or from no treatment at all. I believe that empowering patients to learn about their minds and bodies helps them better take care of themselves and make thoughtful decisions along the way. My job is to assist and guide patients on their journey to becoming their best selves."
