Psychiatrist in California Petra Steinbuchel, MD

Petra Steinbuchel, MD

Welcome to my care portal at LifeStance Health. I very much look forward to meeting you, and would like to share a bit of my background and experience. 
I am board certified in both general psychiatry, and child and adolescent psychiatry, and have experience working with individuals with a range of diagnoses, including anxiety and mood disorders, attention and learning problems, and post-traumatic stress. More specialized interests include gender dysphoria, the interplay between trauma and executive function, anxiety disorders in children and adolescents, and coping with medical trauma. My approach to care is whole-person, and, when indicated, whole-family, in the context of development over the lifespan. In my evaluation and treatment, I assess and prioritize not only the biological, but also the psychological, environmental, and sociocultural factors that may currently serve to exacerbate a presenting problem.
I completed my undergraduate degree at the College of William & Mary, and my medical degree and internship in pediatrics at the Medical College of Georgia (now Augusta Health Sciences University), my general psychiatry training at California Pacific Medical Center, and child and adolescent psychiatry training at Massachusetts General Hospital.
