At Midwest Wellness Center Associates Ltd. we work with adults, teens, and children as individuals, couples, or families to provide the best psychiatric and psychotherapeutic services in the Western Suburbs.
Two early personal experiences had significant influence on my desire to become a psychiatrist for adults and children. One was volunteering at Loyola University Hospital on the Pediatrics unit, where I witnessed how giving the right help with the most care at the right time would change lives.The other experience was in being favored as the aunt my nieces and nephews related to most easily. Because I listened without making them feel they were in trouble or being punished, they were able to talk comfortably with me.The belief in giving help with deep caring, and my style of listening, form the soul of my practice today. I see all patients as unique in their own way, and I value the privilege of giving the best care that my private practice in psychiatric medicine can provide.This is why patients love coming to Midwest Wellness Center.Individualized care is as important to me as it is to you because successful treatment depends on understanding your needs and circumstances. I collaborate with you, your therapist, your primary care provider, and your child’s school when necessary, to develop a treatment plan that fits your needs and achieves your goals.Not everyone needs or wants psychiatric medication. I advise what I see would be best – I work to resolve as much as possible without meds. I encourage you to make your own decisions regarding medication, with my input.I have a good working relationship with my patients because I care and I listen. Patients tell me they feel heard. I do spend a lot of time with my patients -- I’m accessible by email, and I do return phone calls.My specific qualifications to provide you with the best possible care include: Rush University Medical Center graduate Medical Director, Inpatient Psychiatry Vice Chair, Department of Psychiatry Director of Medical Education Assistant Clinical Professor, Rosalind Franklin University Fellowship residential and specialized school settings.
