Thomas M Brod, Psychiatrist  in Los Angeles
“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.

Thomas Mintz, Psychiatrist  in Santa Monica
“The ideal therapist for any patient is one who has enough training, strength and willingness to work in a cooperative venture with their patient towards understanding the roots of the problem, arrive at a practical plan of action and unltimately guide their patient through the process. Talk therapy will often lead to renewed internal strength and the ability to deal with the problems. When indicated, medication will often help. Ultimately, it is taking action in the arena of life which counts for success. We all need sometimes a wise friendly person to help us get over the rough patches in life.

Elise Resnick, Psychiatrist  in Beverly Hills
“In today’s ever growing and changing world, a one size fits all approach to mental health just doesn’t work. Each person is unique and so are their needs. I work closely with my patients to tailor treatment specifically to the individual. For their own personal growth, patients involvement in improving their lives is a must. Patients should not be spending endless hours in sessions, instead, I want people to get involved in their lives and get back out in the world. I want my patients to live happy, productive and fulfilling lives.

Beverly Hills, California 90210
“"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."

Serena Puga, Psychiatrist  in Beverly Hills
“Finding a therapist can be difficult. If you are looking through these profiles you're seeing it's hard enough to know whether someone is professional, much less if they are going to be a good fit for you. Give me a call for a complimentary phone consultation and we can talk about what is on your mind. If we're not a good fit, there's a good chance I know someone who is and I can give you a personal referral. If we are a good fit, we can get to work on relieving some of that distress you are in.

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