Getting Therapy is a life-changing experience for many. The American Psychiatric Association defines a psychiatrist as “a medical doctor specializing in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental illness, including substance use disorders.” In addition, psychiatrists also evaluate physical symptoms that may be related to one’s mental health or caused by another contributing medical illness. Psychiatry and Psychotherapy in Los Angeles are a severe necessity. Psychiatrists are trained as experts in both psychotherapy as well as psychopharmacology.
However, people seek the help of a psychiatrist or psychotherapist for many reasons. To point out a few: some people experience the rapid onset of symptoms such as panic attacks, thoughts of suicide, impulsivity, and anger. At the same time, others may suffer sustained periods of sadness, lack of motivation, nervousness, fatigue, poor functioning, and pain. Distorted perceptions of daily life and feelings of helplessness and hopelessness are common. At Clear Mind, we are dedicated to helping you cope with it. More than twenty million adults in the U.S. experience a substance use disorder. Simultaneously more than half also have a co-occurring mental illness. Regardless of the reason for seeking help with psychiatry and psychotherapy, sooner is always better. We can help.
After a comprehensive consultation with one of our psychiatrists at Clear Mind Treatment, you will be offered a variety of psychiatric interventions for individualized health care. It might include medication management, talk therapy, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), neurofeedback, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectic behavioral therapy (DBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR), psychodynamic therapy, and psychoanalysis. Additionally, we are constantly researching cutting-edge, innovative modalities to bring our patients the most up-to-date proven remission, healing, and wellness strategies.
At Clear Mind, we make Psychiatry and Psychotherapy in Los Angeles available through TeleMedicine-from the comfort of your home or in our Offices in Santa Monica, Tarzana, and Torrance. However, there is a significant shortage of mental health professionals in Los Angeles, especially those accepting insurance, and even fewer are accepting new patients. We, on the opposite, utilize most PPO insurances and Accept New Patients.
Approximately one in five adults in the U.S. experience mental illness each year. Some people are reluctant to seek help due to the stigma that may surround mental illness. Our therapists help patients understand their symptoms and what is occurring neurologically in the brain. Treating the brain is just as important, if not more, than treating any other organ within the body.
