Psychiatrist, MD
Verified
My practice as a psychiatrist and psychotherapist is influenced by an appreciation of the unique biological, psychological and social aspects that contribute to emotional well being and/or suffering of an individual person. Biological treatments like medications can be part of a solution but must be used rationally and carefully and are rarely "cures." Insight into the psychology of the individual, especially unexpressed thoughts, feelings and behaviors can be invaluable, even if hard won in psychotherapy. Attending to one's social environment in concert with the above areas is the final part of effective treatment.

Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, PMHNP, MSN
Verified
I believe in an integrated approach to care across the full span of the reproductive cycle. This includes disorders with symptoms rooted in the sensitivity to hormonal changes experienced during the premenstrual cycle, through the post-menopausal period, observed in disorders such as PMDD and postpartum depression, giving great variety to the types of symptoms a patient experiences, the age of onset, and duration of symptoms, but most importantly how patients respond to treatment. I develop a personalized strategy for each of my clients using modalities such as psychotherapy, medication management and TMS among others.

Psychiatrist, MD

Symptoms such as depression and anxiety can be caused by chemical imbalances in a person’s brain. Medications can relieve these symptoms by changing brain chemicals that influence mood and thought patterns. Because every individual responds differently to every medication, a specialized neuropsychiatrist is the best equipped to prescribe and manage drug therapy. At Kaizen, our neuropsychiatrist considers the whole patient, including symptom and medication history. Dr. Ahmed also has a strong background with military, veteran, and active-duty patients suffering from PTSD, MDD, or Generalized Anxiety.

Online Therapy Psychiatrists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in La Jolla, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in La Jolla listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
