We all want happy, healthy lives. Sometimes, we're dealt with bad genes, negative circumstances, poor relationship, etc, and our lives seem to become difficult to manage. However, life doesn't have to be dependent on our circumstances, relationship, genes. Our minds are our most powerful resources to help us to achieve productive, enjoyable lives. There are many tools out there to help us to improve our minds and intellects. At Insight Choices, we strive to find the best technologies to help you to improve your minds and to alleviate your symptoms and suffering.
We are a team of psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, psychotherapists, and acupuncturists. Our offices are located in West Hollywood near Chateau Marmont, West Los Angeles near UCLA, Downtown Los Angeles near USC, and Irvine near John Wayne Airport. We are open 7 days a week at the West Hollywood location and don’t close until 6pm on most weeknights. We also provide Telepsychiatry services for Self-Pay patients and patients living in remote regions of California.

WHAT WE DO
Our mission is to help you thrive in spite of your mental health issues. We collaborate with you, helping you to acquire the skills you need in order to achieve overall mental well-being and to reach your goals.
Mental wellness occurs when every aspect of one’s life is in balance. It incorporates financial, physical, psychological, and spiritual health. This balance requires learning the necessary tools to cope with stress and react appropriately to life’s uncertainties. We’ll explore all these areas together.
Here at Insight Choices, we address various complex mental health conditions including binge eating, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), attention deficit disorder (ADD/ADHD), phobias, alcohol and other substance abuse, and opioid addiction.
Although medication is often needed, we will also urge you to learn how your thoughts affect your feelings and behaviors and help you to live your life with minimal amount of medication, and if possible, perhaps become medication free.
You have the ability to gain insight into your life and to know how to appropriately react to your circumstances and live a life of your choosing.

New patients can expect to spend about an hour and a half for their initial evaluation. The first half of the time is to fill out our comprehensive forms. The second half of the time is to be evaluated by our clinicians.
After the evaluation, we ask that you follow up with us on a monthly * basis.*Please be advised that due to the nature of the medications, Suboxone, Zubsolv, and Bunavail maintenance treatment for opiate dependence will initially require more frequent office visits.
