Timothy H Rayner, Psychiatrist  in San Diego
“People deserve to find more joy, meaning and effectiveness in life, and reduce unnecessary suffering. This can be accomplished by identifying and moving past the obstacles within ourselves. These barriers were often built early in life in an attempt to solve the problems faced during that time. They can be explored and mapped out by looking at patterns in relationships, and often through watching how the mind works during the therapeutic process itself. Through an integrated emotional and intellectual awareness, obsolete strategies can be replaced with more effective ones, and distorted reactions can give way to more realistic ones.

Jason H Bennett, Psychiatrist  in La Jolla
“My practice as a psychiatrist and psychotherapist is influenced by an appreciation of the unique biological, psychological and social aspects that contribute to emotional well being and/or suffering of an individual person. Biological treatments like medications can be part of a solution but must be used rationally and carefully and are rarely "cures." Insight into the psychology of the individual, especially the hidden parts of thoughts, feelings and behaviors can be invaluable even if hard won in psychotherapy. Attending to one's social environment in concert with the above areas is the final part of effective treatment.

“As a psychodynamic psychiatrist, I am committed to help my patients find relief from suffering and work toward goals that are unique to each individual. I find that the psychodynamic perspective informs both short-term and long-term treatment collaborations, and encourages respect for the individual as he or she is, while identifying ways to increase satisfaction in love and work. My technique emphasizes the talk part of therapy, and integrates the use of medication where this seems essential to healing.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

San Diego 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 San Diego County specialize in age groups (so check for San Diego County child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in San Diego 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 San Diego County, or mental health nurses, specialize in nursing care for people with mental illness or mental distress. San Diego County Psychiatric nurses receive training in psychological therapies (such as CBT), building therapeutic alliance with clients and dealing with challenging behavior.
