Sophie Duriez, Psychiatrist  in Beverly Hills
“Are you an adult with unrecognized ADHD? Adults with ADHD are often misdiagnosed for depressed people.

A thorough evaluation including the identification of what you are suffering from as well as the assessment of your specific strengths, skills, resources and abilities will define all together a goal-oriented treatment plan with or without medication prescription.

Arsalan Malik, Psychiatrist  in Santa Monica
“I focus on my patient as an equal and active partner in treatment. I conceptualize psychiatric treatment as a collaboration involving a process of two people thinking and changing what either alone cannot think or change. Overall, I have found medications can be, but are not always a first line choice for the individual. Psychotherapy has been relegated to the backburner as drugs occupy an increasingly pivotal role in patient care. I endeavor to find a middle road of plain old therapy, in addition to medications to help my patients find meaning in their lives and satisfaction in their relationships.

Jory F Goodman, Psychiatrist  in Beverly Hills
“I work best with people who want to change and improve, but most importantly accept responsibility for themselves and their need to be proactive. Blaming others is futile. The question is what do do differently and better. Better feelings follow better function. With children, and those who have been abused or beaten down I lend them some ego strength and plenty of support. Patients need not waste life looking back but live and enjoy life going forward.

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.
