Common Clinical Conditions 

We treat a range of mental health conditions in individuals of all ages. Our LA psychiatry services include evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and medication management. 


Treatment for severe depression may include medications and evidence-based therapy. Antidepressants may be part of your treatment plan alongside therapy to help improve symptoms and help you learn coping mechanisms. Our psychiatrists will create a tailored treatment plan to help you manage your symptoms and support recovery. 


Severe anxiety symptoms such as panic attacks and extreme worry can interfere with your ability to function. Anxiety treatment can include therapy and medication. Cognitive behavioral therapy can help you to learn about your triggers and coping strategies. Your psychiatrist will develop a treatment plan allowing you to regain control over your anxiety and improve your well-being. 


ADHD symptoms can create unique challenges for individuals. Treatment for ADHD can include evidence-based therapies and, if necessary, medication. We develop a treatment plan based on your needs to help you manage ADHD symptoms and develop healthy coping strategies to live a healthier and more fulfilling life. 


Treatment for OCD can help to reduce the impact it has on your daily life and manage your symptoms. Psychiatric treatment for OCD can include medications and therapy, specifically Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy. Our LA psychiatrists work with you to help you reduce OCD symptoms, develop healthy coping mechanisms, and improve your quality of life.

Why do most psychiatrists in LA not take health insurance? 

Unfortunately, many psychiatrists in LA don’t accept insurance because it makes it difficult to offer tailored and personalized mental health care. Insurance companies typically impose strict restrictions on doctors, resulting in psychiatrists being overworked. Thriving Center of Psychology doesn’t accept insurance as we want to protect our doctors and provide the tailored care that our clients deserve. 

How much does insurance cover for psychiatry sessions out-of-network in LA? 

Although most psychiatrists don’t accept insurance, your insurance could include out-of-network benefits. Contact your insurance to determine your precise coverage.

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.
