She has over 20 years of extensive expertise in the diagnosis and management of various psychiatric disorders. Her approach leverages the unique strengths, challenges, and needs of each individual and by focusing on the positive. In a word, she brings out the “best” in each person. She lives in La Jolla with her husband and their 3 boys. She loves reading, exploring new technologies, buying new gadgets and traveling to her son’s basketball, lacrosse and tennis games.
Dr. Inamdar’s care is based on the premise that patients who require mental health care respond best to a combination of therapy and medication. She places special emphasis on the integration of a psychotherapeutic approach, with careful and limited use of medication prescribed only when necessary. Dr. Inamdar applies her knowledge in neuropharmacology and ongoing research towards newer treatment options to improve patient health. Her willingness to work with patients seeking to explore alternative/complementary treatments, and working in collaboration with a dietician/nutritionist, and personal trainer, helps to look at treatment options beyond the traditional medications-only approach.
Dr. Inamdar sees clients in her offices at La Jolla and EastLake and also uses video conferencing to connect with patients as far as Palm Springs, San Luis Obispo, Phoenix, South Dakota, Bangalore, India, Mexico, and Lusaka, Africa.
