Sheila Rao, DO


I am a board certified psychiatrist, with nearly two decades of clinical experience. My goal is to foster an empathic, accepting environment to help people deal with life’s challenges.

My philosophy of care involves offering support, while reflecting new ways to approach long standing issues. I believe each person is unique and requires an individualized treatment approach.

After completing residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin, I worked for two years in community mental health. In 2005, I developed a private practice in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. Focusing on treating symptoms of anxiety and mood disorders, I also worked with patients to identify root causes of their pain, often related to trauma.

In addition to outpatient, I have experience in diverse clinical settings, including PHP, residential, inpatient, geriatric facilities, and medically underserved communities.

Having previously worked with Dr. Kim, I look forward to joining SunCloud Health!
