Profile Picture of Charles Wuhl, MD

Charles Wuhl, MD

I am a Psychiatrist with board certifications in both Adult and Child/Adolescent Psychiatry. My approach is to build on a person’s strengths and positive aspects of mental health. I believe in collaborating with my clients to determine their goals, both in symptom relief and self-understanding. I aim to achieve results quickly, by giving them the tools they need to deal with life’s challenges. In addition to individuals, my practice includes providing counseling to couples and families through psychotherapy and medication management, as well as a combination of the two. I believe in a conservative and personalized approach to the use of medication. My areas of specialization include, but are not limited to, anxiety, social anxiety, depression, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, and ADHD in children, adolescents, and adults.

I have been in private practice for over 30 years on the East Coast, and served as an Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at New York University. I was a therapist to NYU law students, and also supervised medical students, residents, and Child Psychiatry fellows. My residency training took place at New York Medical College, and was followed by a fellowship in Child/Adolescent Psychiatry at Columbia University’s New York Presbyterian Hospital. I recently relocated to Los Angeles to be closer to my family, and look forward to continuing the profession I find so rewarding on the West Coast.
