Sadhana Nayak-Young, MD

 I am board-certified in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and in Adult Psychiatry, by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.

One of my biggest strengths as a psychiatrist is my desire to forge a genuine connection with my patients. My goal is to deeply understand each person in the context of their current life and past experiences. This enables me to perform an accurate assessment of their problems and design a treatment plan that is effective at creating change and helping them feel their best. I treat patients of all ages, from young children to adults. I take a “systems-based” approach to my child patients, gathering a full picture of their family, school, and social life. I enjoy partnering with parents who are interested in understanding the impact of their parenting on their child and making changes when needed.

After a thorough evaluation, I recommend whatever treatment will be the most effective to help each patient, whether that is therapy, medications, or a combination of the two. I am able to offer therapy to some patients based on my availability. I am trained in many types of therapy, including psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy, prolonged exposure therapy, social skills training, couples therapy, and my favorite, family therapy. I am conservative in my use of medications, especially in younger patients. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry at Harvard University, my Master’s degree in Molecular Biology at the University of Cambridge, and my medical degree at the University of Michigan. I completed my general psychiatry residency at UCLA-Semel Institute and my child and adolescent fellowship at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.
