"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."

"There are many reasons one seeks help. The fit between the person and the clinician is the first step in the process of working on one's problems. Trust yourself to seek for those factors in the therapist that are important to you. Keep in mind that the art of medicine can not be taught but that the knowledge base and experience of the therapist has to be a required fundamental factor in your decision. The helping profession is composed by good dedicated people. What I want you to know about me is this: I practice what I do."

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 or psychotropics. Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans and MRIs.

Some psychiatric practitioners in Santa Monica specialize in age groups (so check for Santa Monica child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Santa Monica). Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists or geropsychiatrists.

Other related specialties include psychopharmacology (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics and neuroimaging.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Santa Monica, or mental health nurse practitioners, perform many of the same functions as a psychiatrist. This includes diagnosing mental illness and prescribing medication. Santa Monica Psychiatric nurse practitioners also act as a therapist, helping patients with depression, anxiety and suicidal individuals, as well as other conditions that can be remedied with counseling.

Nurses monitor for side effects and responses to medical treatments and offer information on medications so that clients can make informed choices about their use.
