Is therapy right for me? If you are hurting, if there are problems in your life related to fear when you shouldn't be afraid, and sad when you shouldn't feel sad, or have doubts about love capability, maybe it's time to find out. That is one of the purposes of doing a psychiatric evaluation. I have been successfully treating people suffering with anxiety, depression and relationship difficulties for many years.

Anxiety Psychiatrists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a Los Angeles anxiety psychiatrist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Los Angeles.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Los Angeles is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Los Angeles Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication as well as practice psychotherapy in treatment. Sometimes, Psychiatrists form part of a clinical team in which they will diagnose and prescribe, while psychologists or therapists provide the client's psychotherapy.

As part of a clinical assessment, Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, take blood tests, and order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans, and MRIs.

The field of psychiatry in Los Angeles has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.

Other related sub-specialties include cognition psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, psychosomatic, forensic, reproductive medicine specialties, psychopharmacology , psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Los Angeles, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Los Angeles Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
