Psychiatrist in Santa Monica, California, Alice Wong, DO

Alice Wong, DO

My approach as a clinician is to provide culturally sensitive and inclusive mental health care by listening with empathy, inquiring with curiosity, and understanding with humility. I have experience in working with diverse cultural backgrounds and understand the struggles one may face in wanting to assimilate while retaining their cultural heritage. Besides prescribing medications when indicated, I am a strong proponent of psychodynamic therapy to process past experiences, understand ourselves better, and achieve the lives we consciously choose.
I earned my undergraduate degree in psychobiology at UCLA and my medical degree at Touro University – California where I studied with an emphasis on holistic approaches. I then completed my psychiatry residency in New York at Maimonides Medical Center. During which I also completed further psychotherapy training in the interpersonal approach at William Alanson White Institute of Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis & Psychology. I have experience working with a wide variety of mental health conditions including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. I am also fluent in Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese.
