Dr. Ambardar's practice philosophy centers around treating the whole patient: mind, body, and spirit. We believe that the judicious use of psychopharmacology, coupled with psychotherapy and other alternative treatments, (such as meditation, kundalini yoga, and walking therapy), can bring about transformative changes in those suffering from mood disorders.
Dr. Ambardar specializes in treating adults, ages 18 and older. She has two offices: A Beverly Hills office conveniently located on S. Beverly Drive and a Malibu office, conveniently located across from Duke's Malibu, off of PCH. We also offer evening appointments, state-of-the-art electronic prescribing, and free public parking.

The Happiness Psychiatrist: Sheenie Ambardar, M.D.'s Groups

5-week Adult Codependency/Self-Esteem Group

This friendly group meets in Beverly Hills on Mondays from 7-8 pm. The group consists of men and women, ages 18 and older, and focuses on issues surrounding codependency, self-esteem, self-compassion, and spirituality. The group is small (5 people max) and each session starts with a meditation and topic discussion. Participants are encouraged to share as much or as little as they are comfortable and we strive to create a warm, nurturing, and non-judgmental atmosphere. Our next group will start September 11, 2017. Please contact Dr. Ambardar for an interview to see if the group is a good fit for you.
