Lana Benedek, MD in Santa Monica
Are you looking to be the still point in this turning world? I practice holistic and integrative mental health care. I see adolescents and adults for what I call: Mind, Body & Spirit therapy. In my practice I work with individuals experiencing a wide variety of mental health issues, the most common of these include; anxiety disorders, mood disorders, and addiction or some combination of these. I also see many clients who have histories of trauma.
Mind, Body Spirit Therapy includes a variety of practices to facilitate connection with ourselves. Likely yoga and/or mindfulness based practices will be included. I may also make suggestions related to supplements, diet or exercise.
I do not provide medication management services. Although I am happy to see individuals who use psychiatric medications this is not the focus of my practice. Initial assessments are usually 90 minutes and follow ups are 1 to 1.5 hours.
