"I work by way of an interpersonal-interactive method, placing emphasis on a person's behavior and experience. I use dialogue, or conversation, rather than a one-sided examination by a therapist of a patient -- in order to develop trust and mutual understanding. As I apply it, conversation can be both unsettling and reassuring, flowing back and forth from one to the other."

Welcome to my practice! I take a multifaceted approach that integrates medications, psychotherapy and behavioral strategies into a comprehensive treatment plan specific to you. I strongly believe in shoring up wellness rather than treating illness, and you can expect to spend a significant amount of time working on sleep, fitness and nutrition, in addition to tackling deeper psychological issues. I have specialized training in treating addiction (including the use of Suboxone for opiate abuse) and women's mental health but am well-versed in treating any mental health condition.

Shame and anxiety (hidden or tormentingly on the surface) are key discomforts in each person; however, everyone is miraculously unique. In my practice, we aim to pinpoint the help you need and offer the quickest and most lasting treatment appropriate. Sometimes that is intensive psychotherapy that can be short-term or go on for years if appropriate; sometimes it is a few sessions of a technique like EMDR that sort-of resets the brain after an emotional trauma. Often I recommend brainwave biofeedback (EEG neurofeedback). Always I'm seeking the most naturalistic treatment, with the least amount of medication practical.

Narcissistic Personality Psychiatrists
Narcissists cut a wide, swashbuckling figure through the world...even in Los Angeles. At one end of the self-loving spectrum is the charismatic leader with an excess of charm, at the other end reside individuals with narcissistic personality disorder , whose grandiosity soars to such heights that they are manipulative and easily angered, especially when they don't receive the attention they consider their birthright. Narcissism involves cockiness, manipulativeness, selfishness, power motives, and vanity-a love of self...and mirrors. Narcissistic mothers or narcissistic daughters are a common discussion in therapy, although beware the temptation to use the label because we all have a sense of ego. Personality traits related to narcissism include: Psychopathy, and Machiavellianism.

Los Angeles narcissism psychiatrists can help work through the issues of being, or knowing, a narcissist. As narcissism counselors in Los Angeles they are experienced in guiding clients in dealing with this disorder.

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.
