Common Clinical Conditions

Our psychiatry services include evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and medication management. We treat various mental health disorders, including the most common specialties seen by Los Angeles psychiatrists.


When anxiety becomes overwhelming, it can interfere with a person’s daily life. Anxiety treatment can include medications and therapies like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), which aims to modify the thought processes that can trigger anxiety, helping you to manage fear and stress better. We develop a personalized treatment plan with a principal emphasis on empowering you to regain command over your anxiety and enhance your overall well-being.


Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) creates unique challenges for individuals in all areas of life. Your ADHD treatment plan may include stimulant or non-stimulant medications, if necessary, to adjust chemical imbalances in the brain and behavioral therapies to improve focus and develop coping strategies. Our primary objective is to create a treatment plan specifically for you, to manage ADHD symptoms and help you navigate your daily life more effectively.


Depression is a serious medical illness that impacts all aspects of your life. Treatment can include a combination of evidence-based therapy and medications. Antidepressants balance mood-influencing chemicals in your brain, while therapy techniques help you learn effective coping mechanisms. Through careful evaluation, our psychiatrists develop a comprehensive and individualized treatment plan to help you manage symptoms and facilitate recovery.


Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) can affect your ability to perform daily tasks. Psychiatric treatment for OCD can include medications, such as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), and proven therapeutic methods, including Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy to confront your fears and reduce compulsive behaviors. Our NYC psychiatrists work with you to help you control OCD symptoms and improve your quality of life.

What is the difference between a psychiatrist and a therapist in LA? 

While psychiatrists and therapists support and treat mental health conditions, they help in different ways. A psychiatrist is a medical doctor who can prescribe medication to treat various mental health conditions. A therapist is not a medical doctor, so they can’t prescribe medications. Instead, a therapist will use talking therapies to support mental health and promote well-being. 

If you’re experiencing debilitating mental health symptoms that affect your day-to-day living, you may need to see a psychiatrist. If you’re not sure if you need to see a psychiatrist or therapist, contact Thriving Center of Psychology, and we can help. 

What can I expect from my session with a psychiatrist in LA? In your first session with a psychiatrist, you will discuss your symptoms, medical history, medications, and any family mental health issues. Your psychiatrist will want to know what you’re struggling with and what brings you to the appointment.
