Psychiatrist in La Jolla, California, Alla Sverdlik, MD

Alla Sverdlik, MD

I work closely with my patients to gain a thorough understanding of their history of experiences, dispositions, and life narratives. This is integral as it allows for clarification of the unique challenges that each patient faces that can cause emotional distress, often manifesting as anxiety or depression. In addition to a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, I use a psychodynamically informed approach for diagnosis, along with medication therapy when indicated. I also believe in the usefulness of integrative therapies such as mindfulness meditation along with proper nutrition and supplementation, for a more holistic treatment approach.
I completed my psychiatric residency at the University of Maryland/Sheppard Pratt in addition to completing a residency in internal medicine. Over the past two years, I have practiced as a consultation-liaison psychiatrist treating patients in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. I have significant experience in the psychiatric treatment of patients with complex concurrent medical illnesses including cancer.
