Arsalan Malik, Psychiatrist  in Santa Monica
“I focus on my patient as an equal and active partner in treatment. I conceptualize psychiatric treatment as a collaboration involving a process of two people thinking and changing what either alone cannot think or change. Overall, I have found medications can be, but are not always a first line choice for the individual. Psychotherapy has been relegated to the backburner as drugs occupy an increasingly pivotal role in patient care. I endeavor to find a middle road of plain old therapy, in addition to medications to help my patients find meaning in their lives and satisfaction in their relationships.

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.

Eva Altobelli, Psychiatrist  in Santa Monica
“I find that life is a challenge for most of us. Particularly trying to achieve a happy peaceful life. The allure of self medication to deal with life's stressors is often a temptation, and addiction is a slippery slope. Just being human and living within our society creates obstacles to stress free living. We are complicated creatures and it has taken us many years of experiences and usually some trauma to become who we are now. I appreciate that engaging in a therapeutic relationship can be a delicate and difficult process and do my best to honor that.

“There are many reasons one seeks help. The fit between the person and the clinician is the first step in the process of working on one's problems. Trust yourself to seek for those factors in the therapist that are important to you. Keep in mind that the art of medicine can not be taught but that the knowledge base and experience of the therapist has to be a required fundamental factor in your decision.
