My name is Dr. Stephanoff and I am a psychiatrist who completed my undergraduate education at UCLA (graduated summa cum laude), medical training at UTMB John Sealy School of Medicine (graduated summa cum laude, member of Alpha Omega Alpha honor society) and residency training at Harbor UCLA Medical Center (served as chief resident). Prior to pursuing a career in medicine I worked for nearly a decade in the commercial real estate industry, training, mentoring and leading a group of analysts on complex development projects. I decided to pursue medicine because I wanted to work one-on-one with individuals to help make a meaningful impact in the quality of their lives. I can treat all major psychiatric illnesses, but I specialize in mood disorders, anxiety, and psychotic disorders. My approach to treatment is holistic. I consider the whole person, including biological, emotional, relational and spiritual factors. I consider a multitude of treatment options and work closely with my patients to tailor a treatment plan that works for them. I am a Southern California native, I have two daughters, and I enjoy the beach, bass guitar, chess, philosophy and history.
