Elite Psychiatric Care

For More than Just the Elite Few

 

About Us

We are a full-service outpatient psychiatric group offering both psychotherapy and medication management services in Encino and Pasadena. Our practice provides care for patients across the lifespan with physicians trained in both child and adolescent psychiatry as well as adult psychiatry. Our physicians are highly skilled and have received their education and training from some of the most prestigious universities in the United States.

 

The vast majority of our patients utilize their insurance benefits to see us, and we are currently in-network providers for Aetna PPO, ComPsych, and HMC HealthWorks. We also see many patients out-of-network.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are seeing almost all patients via telemedicine appointments. We continue to accept new patients for both our Encino and Pasadena locations.

We look forward to helping care for you!

Psychiatric Consultation

We provide consultation for diagnosis and treatment, including for women experiencing mental health problems related to the reproductive cycle (such as postpartum depression) and patients requiring preoperative clearance prior to surgery.

Medication Management

Medications can be tremendously helpful in treating a variety of mental health conditions including depression, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety, panic, addiction problems, ADHD, eating disorders, and schizophrenia.

Individual Psychotherapy

Our physicians are trained in a variety of specialized psychotherapeutic modalities including Interpersonal Therapy, Prolonged Exposure Therapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Supportive Therapy.

Couples Therapy

In addition to individual psychotherapy services, our physicians also offer couples and family therapy. Our physicians are interested in treating the entire family unit holistically and can provide both individual and family therapy services to various family members.

In addition to treating the mental health conditions listed above, our physicians are trained to treat individuals experiencing acute stressors, grief and bereavement issues related to significant losses.
