Barbara Lampert, MD
Dr. Barbara Lampert is a board certified psychiatrist, diplomat of The American Board of Addiction Medicine, and Fellow of the American Society of Addiction Medicine. She trained at the Downstate School of Medicine in Brooklyn, NY, completed her internship at Georgetown University in Washington, DC, and her residency in Psychiatry at the David Geffin School of Medicine at UCLA in Los Angeles.
In over 30 years she has worked in inpatient and outpatient settings, has taught 3rd year residents psychopharmacology in the Mood Disorder clinic she created, has consulted in the prison system, and has volunteered in the aftermath of natural disasters. She joined the New Mexico Medical Reserve Corps and was active in the Corps while working in her private practice. She continued to study the effects of trauma when she returned to California in 2008. She received specialized training in EMDR and Dialectic Behavior Therapy. In addition she studied substance abuse problems and became a Diplomate of the American Board of Addiction Medicine.
Empathy forms the core of Dr. Lampert’s approach to treating patients. Working with trauma survivors she believes that the goal is not to dwell on “the story” because patients often need time to reconstruct an accurate history. Rather, helping patients manage the challenge of living in the present moment is a worthy goal. Dr. Lampert has been named in Best Doctors in America for the treatment of Mood Disorders and Best Doctors in California. She has remained dedicated to the dual path she’s followed for years-that is excellence in Biological Psychiatry and psychology. She looks forward to working with you to help you achieve your treatment goals.
