I’m a general psychiatrist and addiction medicine specialist. I have extensive experience helping patients with complex psycho-pharmacologic needs. In addition, I’ve steadily acquired a range of therapy skills, including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), the cornerstone of many evidence-based treatments; Motivational Interviewing (MI), particularly useful for addiction (eg cannabis, gaming, etc.); Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), often with older clients; Exposure/Response Prevention, as well as non-exposure-based treatment for OCD or intrusive thoughts; and I'm currently training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).

I treat adult patients for any kind of psychiatric or mental health issue. I also invite patients who may not have any particular disorder or condition who are interested in personal growth and development. I use three approaches: 1) psychotherapy only, brief or long term; 2) a combination of psychotherapy and psychopharmacology; and 3) medication management without psychotherapy. The latter is especially applicable if you are already in psychotherapy with another therapist. Lastly, I provide psychiatric and substance abuse evaluations whether requested by a patient, a court, or by a licensing institution.

In today’s ever changing world, especially given what we all have been experiencing over the past several years, a one -size -fits all approach to emotional well-being just doesn’t work. Each person is unique and so are their needs. I work closely with people to tailor treatment specifically to each individual. I view it as essential for each person to be fully involved in improving their lives and see my role as a guide. People should not be spending endless hours in sessions. Instead, I want folks to get involved and get back out in the world as quickly as possible to live happy, productive and fulfilling lives.

Please contact me for: (1) a psychiatric evaluation without jumping to conclusions, explained in plain English; (2) traditional dynamic psychotherapy — only flexible, non-stuffy, and straightforward; (3) recognition of mind-body medicine, i.e., how the body affects the mind, and vice versa; (4) prescription writing when needed, with a light touch and full attention to pros and cons. The ideal patient appears successful on the outside, but suffers longstanding dissatisfaction or self-defeating behavior. Examples include prolonged reactions to trauma or grief, undue guilt or self-blame, or a pattern of interpersonal conflicts.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

California 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 California 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 California, 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. California Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
How to find the right Psychiatrist?

If you're finding it difficult to find the right psychiatrist in California, don't worry--you're not alone. Psychiatrists are highly specialized professionals. They tend to be busy--appointments can be short (e.g. 15 mins.)--and so as a potential client you can sometimes feel lost or confused. Don't let this deter you.

Begin first by checking the psychiatrists listed here nearest to you. If they are limited in number, expand out your search geographically (Broaden your Search) and see who's available further afield. Use the links in the left nav bar to find the relevant insurance, if you intend to use your health insurance to pay for the provider.

If you're still finding it difficult to find a psychiatrist in California, call or contact the professionals here and ask for a psychiatric referral. You can also call the psychiatric nurses in California as they tend to be affiliated to a network of psychiatrists in their area ( California). Or just chat to them to see if they can help.
