The crisis of this global pandemic reminds me that we are all sharing this planet together as a community. The virus doesn’t care what color we are. It feels long overdue to shine light on our system of racial injustice. I stand hopeful and eager for change I find that life is a challenge for most of us. The allure of self medication to deal with life's stressors is often a temptation. Just being human and living within our society creates obstacles to stress free living. We are complicated creatures and it has taken us many years of experiences and usually some trauma to become who we are now.

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.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Santa Monica 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 Santa Monica has many sub specialties including pediatric psychiatry (so check for Santa Monica child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Santa Monica). 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 (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.
