About My Private Psychiatric Practice

Thank you for visiting my website! Whether we ever get the chance to have a personalized visit in my office or not, the Be Your Own Brand of Sexy community is here to offer you and other women a helping hand.

I am Dr. Susan.

I am a board certified psychiatrist specializing in the evaluation and management of psychiatric conditions such as mood disorders, trauma, and PTSD for older adolescents and adults. I also have a strong interest in women’s mental health and relationship issues. I offer individualized care based on your specific problems, concerns, and preferences.

With me, your treatment will be interactive, practical, and solution-focused.

Everyone needs help sometimes.

I treat psychiatric conditions stemming from several contributing factors. Often both biological factors and psychological causes can play a role in any issues you may be having. We will work together to identify and address whatever contributing factors are affecting you, including potential contributors like:

Psychological Factors

  • A lack of coping skills
  • Trouble processing situations
  • Traumatic early/late life experiences

Biological Factors

  • Thyroid issues
  • Effects of chemotherapy
  • Genetic predisposition

I help my patients with a wide variety of psychiatric disorders, particularly mood disorders. Common psychiatric conditions I help patients with include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Relationship problems
  • Panic attacks
  • Social phobias and shyness

Whether your condition is listed above or not, I will try to help you. No matter how complicated, whatever is causing your mental stress can be identified and addressed. Together, we will work to improve your mental health and help you become the person you strive to be.

Help is here.

There are many different approaches we can use to address your unique situation. After a period of evaluation, I will offer recommendations to help you achieve your goals. Talk therapy is often essential to help you reach your best outcome, especially if you might be noticing any unhealthy patterns that can interfere with your ability to live a fuller, more meaningful life in general.

At times, you can benefit from medication as well. We may use both talk therapy and medicine in your treatment. Everyone’s needs are different. Your personalized treatment plan will be a result of our collaboration.

Let’s get to know each other.

What will happen at our first appointment? At my office, I’ll ask you to share what is happening in your life that has brought you in to see me. We will talk about how you are feeling and what you think is not working for you in your life. We’ll try to become comfortable with each other.

During our session, I will listen, observe, and clarify what you’ve told me. Together, we will discuss your goals and find a treatment plan to reach them. We may need a few sessions to fully address your goals and plan, so we can view the first session as a good start on your journey.

Please feel free to contact me at 650-325-2781 or fill out this form to see how I can help you or your loved ones in a more personalized way.
