Translating Science to Service

Adult, Adolescent and Child Psychiatry

Why Credible

I am a Psychiatrist, Board Certified in Adult, Adolescent and Child Psychiatry (My CV). My vision is to translate science to service. I have spent my lifetime developing the best methods to improve the lives of children, teens and families as a Child Psychiatrist in Chicago- suffering from emotional, cognitive and relationship problems. I am keen to work with your strengths to bring out the very best within you. I consider myself “a pilot” in the process of taking you on a safe journey. It is not enough to be named through awards as one of the Best Psychiatrist in Chicago or the Top Psychiatrist in Chicago unless I gain the personal satisfaction of seeing you as my trophy, doing well.

Through my research (My Publications), I’ve had the opportunity to open the window into the brain through functional neuro-imaging studies. This allowed me to examine and repair the existing dysfunction with pharmacotherapy using bipolar disorder as a model to understand how brain functions. As an integral part of our team in the past decade, I had the good fortune to develop and then help test child and family-focused cognitive behaviour therapy. What is unique in my work is weaving principles of individual psychotherapy, mindfulness and family therapy into innovative skills to live artfully and use medications only where necessary.
