Practices In: Chicago
Patients Seen: Adults

Dr. Susan Pyatet­sky com­plet­ed her under­grad­u­ate stud­ies, med­ical school train­ing, and res­i­den­cy in Psy­chi­a­try at North­west­ern Uni­ver­si­ty in Chica­go, Illi­nois. Soon after com­plet­ing her res­i­den­cy train­ing, she became Board-Cer­ti­fied in Psy­chi­a­try. She moved to New Zealand where she worked in Com­mu­ni­ty Men­tal Health and learned to appre­ci­ate the impor­tance of hav­ing social sup­port in men­tal health recov­ery and of the need for the client to be heard. After work­ing and trav­el­ing over­seas, she hap­pi­ly returned to her home­town of Chica­go to work in Out­pa­tient Psy­chi­a­try. Dr. Pyatet­sky enjoys work­ing at the Chica­go office of the Insti­tute for Per­son­al Devel­op­ment where she focus­es on med­ica­tion man­age­ment and sup­port­ive ther­a­py for old­er teenagers and adults. She believes that health­care is a col­lab­o­ra­tive process and that clients’ pref­er­ences and goals are of utmost importance.

Every per­son must have auton­o­my and a sense of con­trol over their health­care. I enjoy lis­ten­ing to and col­lab­o­rat­ing with clients to tai­lor their treat­ment by respect­ing their preferences.
