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.

Arthur Chou, Psychiatrist  in Redondo Beach
“My mission is to help you understand yourself. With that knowledge comes the courage and strength to free us from old, dysfunctional patterns of behaviors, thinking, and emotional states. I consider how the unconscious contributes, in interaction with our conscious mind and environment, to the development of our personality. However, the unconscious is only one part of us that can influence our lives. Beliefs, behaviors, relationships, and the environment play other significant and sometimes more dominating roles in our lives. Therefore, I use a diverse array of therapies to help you change.

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.

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.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Los Angeles County 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 Los Angeles County specialize in age groups (so check for Los Angeles County child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Los Angeles County). 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 nurses in Los Angeles County, or mental health nurses, specialize in nursing care for people with mental illness or mental distress. Los Angeles County Psychiatric nurses receive training in psychological therapies (such as CBT), building therapeutic alliance with clients and dealing with challenging behavior. Importantly, they are trained to administer psychiatric medication (or 'psychiatric meds') and, in very limited ways, to prescribe meds.

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