Penelope Libeu, MD

**PROVIDER DOES NOT ACCEPT MEDICARE** I am a Board-Certified Psychiatrist and I have been practicing with PCPA since 2018. I was born in California and received my BA from UC Berkeley. I’ve had the opportunity to live all over the US, including Chicago, IL, where I completed medical school at Rush Medical College and psychiatry residency at Northwestern. I enjoy spending my free time with my loved ones, including playing with my kids, and exercising in the great outdoors. My approach to improving mental health is multidisciplinary and may include combining medication(s) with psychotherapy, group therapy, relationship (couple’s) therapy, and making lifestyle changes to improve your overall well-being, e.g. improving sleep hygiene, reducing alcohol/drug consumption, increasing cardiovascular exercise, starting a meditation practice, volunteering in your community, increasing social connections, and engaging with your natural surroundings, to name a few.

My specific area of expertise is in psychopharmacology (medication management). It was psychopharmacology that sparked my interest in psychiatry when I was a medical student: how fascinating it is that the brain is a part of the body too, and how helpful medication can be in healing problems of the mind, just like treating high blood pressure with a combination of medication, dietary changes, exercise, and stress reduction. I also have a special interest in treating patients suffering from mood and anxiety problems, as well as Women’s Mental Health during the pre-conception, partum, and post-partum periods of life. The next step to feeling better is making the first appointment, so if you have read this far, then you are nearly there. I look forward to working with you.”
