    Psychiatric ServicesLUKE SWIFT, DNP, APN, PMHNP-BC

    Medical Director & Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

    I received my Masters Degree in Nursing and my Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) from Rush University specializing in Psychiatry and am a board-certified Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. I have experience at the inpatient, residential, and outpatient psychiatric levels of care. My passion is working with individuals and groups coping with any and all psychiatric disorders.

    As a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, I strive to bring focus back to treating you as a whole rather than an isolated disorder. My focus in treatment is to provide a holistically dynamic integration of talk therapy and medication therapy with the goal of helping you lead a life unhindered by your mental health.

    Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

    My passion lies in working with individuals who are seeking support while navigating fertility issues and family planning, as well as those in the antepartum or postpartum periods. As a parent myself, I understand the unique difficulties of fertility, pregnancy, and the journey of parenthood. I know what it feels like to have the sense that you have lost yourself, and I am here to support you and tell you that you are not alone.

    As a Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, I believe in a holistic approach to mental health care. Each person is a unique individual with their own story which influences and shapes their life. I use this approach to choose medication and non-pharmacological treatments to help alleviate your symptoms.

    Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

    As a Chicago native, I understand how the noise and distractions of the city can easily mask the storm brewing on the inside of us. When it is time to face ourselves, it can be difficult to know where to begin. As a Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, I want to partner with you on your journey to healing.

    I received my doctoral degree from Rush University and I have over 5 years of experience with child/adolescent and adult mental health disorders. I became a psychiatric nurse practitioner to help those who may struggle with asking for help and to normalize mental health care and therapy in communities that may be more resistant to seeking treatment. My goal in medication therapy is to help you develop a treatment plan that best fits your individualized goals. As your provider, I will ensure to empathize and understand how social, emotional, physical, spiritual, and financial factors impact your mental health.

    Emily Berwald, MSN, APN, FNP-C, PMHNP-BC

    Psychiatric and Family Nurse Practitioner

    I have extensive experience in treating anxiety and depression, as well as a keen understanding of the intersection of mental health and primary care. I also specialize in addiction medication, with a strong background in treating opioid and alcohol use disorders through medication-assisted treatment. Much of my clinical background has been served in the settings of street homeless outreach and shelter-based medicine, a role that has strongly shaped my trauma-informed perspective and overall philosophy of care.

    My academic background includes a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Michigan State University, and a Master of Science in Nursing from DePaul University. I am a board-certified Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. My post-master training has been focused exclusively in psychiatry, and I possess additional specialty training in the management of substance use disorders.

    I look forward to meeting you and accompanying you on your journey toward wellness.

    You might be wondering what exactly a DNP-PMHNP is  – here’s the rundown:

    Our Psychiatric team at MBC includes Doctors of Nursing Practice (DNP) who are Board Certified Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioners (PMHNP) and can assess, diagnose, and deliver care to individuals, families, and groups to assess and treat psychiatric and mental health needs. This means they provide the full range of psychiatric-mental health care across the lifespan and can prescribe medication and administer psychotherapy.

    DNP-PMHNPs practice in a variety of diverse settings, including private practice, institutions of higher education, hospital settings, community mental health centers, psychiatric home-care programs, and forensic mental health programs. They also work as members of community-based, intensive case management teams. In addition to working directly with patients and families, DNP-PMHNPs are qualified for leadership roles in healthcare settings. Here at MBC, we believe in the power of Nursing and are proud to be one of the few, if not only, clinics in the Chicagoland Area that is Nurse-led and directed by a PMHNP.

    Being a Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner requires compassion, sensitivity, and exceptional communication and relationship-building skills. We love that our psychiatric team sees the human being in everyone and knows that a person isn’t defined by their mental health condition. They are deeply curious providers and will meet you where you’re at to start mapping your road to wellness. Make an appointment here or see the groups MBC currently offers here.
