More about Dr. M Christina Benson
Dr. CHRISTINA BENSON is a board-certified Psychiatrist and Psychoanalyst in private practice in the mid-Wilshire neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. She offers comprehensive outpatient psychiatric services for young, middle-aged, and older adults but not the elderly. Trained in psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, and psychopharmacology, she uses a range of approaches as they are needed in helping adults who are experiencing emotional or mental difficulties.
I offer psychotherapeutic services in conjunction with the medication management of my own patients. I utilize both long and short-term therapeutic approaches depending on the needs of the individual. I see many couples, at times for many years and at times in shorter frameworks. As an analyst, of course, I am trained to see individuals with neurotic and character disorders more intensively and for a longer duration.
If you are considering entering treatment, you might have circumstances that are acutely overwhelming, chronic problems that may be non-specific yet still produce an ongoing strain, or a problem that has been diagnosed and treated before. In assessing what is bothering you, the psychodynamic psychotherapist seeks to understand the deeper meaning and roots of the issues. The job of therapy is for me to get to know you, and for you to get to know yourself more in greater depth.
