Michael Blumenfield, MD, Psychiatrist in Woodland Hills
I am a board certified psychiatrist and I specialize in psychotherapy with adults. I also prescribe medication, when indicated, either in combination with psychotherapy or alone. I work with people with a wide variety of symptoms or reasons for coming to see a psychiatrist. Every person is unique. I have worked with people from many different backgrounds, including the sports world, the entertainment industry, business, teaching, students, parenting and other settings. At times I will hold sessions via SKYPE.
I have written and edited several books on the subjects of psychotherapy, psychosomatic medicine, treatment of the burn and trauma patient and PTSD. I have been Speaker of the Assembly of the American Psychiatric Association and I am Past President of the American Academy of Psychoanalysis and Dynamic Therapy. I have a blog PsychiatryTalk.com
