Accepting new patients. I practice integrative psychiatry emphasizing wellness over medications. Do you feel like doctors have been medicating you, but not understanding you? Have you been disappointed with psychiatric medications and are seeking a different path, without the risks that may come with medications? Do you worry that you may have become dependent on sleeping pills or medications for mood/ anxiety and hope to live a full, meaningful life without them? Are you seeking a psychiatrist who is comfortable with alternative, complementary, and holistic treatments? If these questions resonate with you, perhaps we should meet.

Dr. Kass believes that optimal psychiatric care begins by hearing a patient’s history and understanding his or her goals for entering treatment. There are no algorithms for mental health care; Dr. Kass believes treating mental illness and optimizing patient well-being depends on formulating patients individually and tailoring treatment to meet their unique goals and needs. Psychological distress, whether it be experienced as depression, anxiety , social withdrawal, insomnia, irritability, or emotional numbness, is often due to multiple environmental, social, and psychological factors.

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.



About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

La Jolla 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 La Jolla 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 La Jolla, 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. La Jolla Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
