Psychiatrists in Los Angeles County

Sophie Duriez, Psychiatrist  in Beverly Hills
“Are you an adult with unrecognized ADHD? Adults with ADHD are often misdiagnosed for depressed people. However their "depression" is only a consequence of their disorganization, lack of focus and procrastination leading to low self-esteem. I am an Adult, Adolescent & Child Psychiatrist, and a seasoned therapist as well, who knows how to help creative people who suffer from being misunderstood. 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.

West Hollywood, California 90046
“"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."

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.

Los Angeles, California 90025
“Is therapy right for me? If you are hurting, if there are problems in your life related to fear when you shouldn't be afraid, and sad when you shouldn't feel sad, or have doubts about love capability, maybe it's time to find out. That is one of the purposes of doing a psychiatric evaluation. I have been successfully treating people suffering with anxiety, depression and relationship difficulties for many years.
