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.

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.

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.
