Professional statement

Dr. Hudson Elmore is a Psychiatrist in Los Angeles, CA who has experience treating clients with diverse socioeconomic and racial backgrounds with particular expertise in treating anxiety, depression, bipolar spectrum illness and psychosis; individuals who have experienced trauma; individuals with chronic relationship difficulties and LGBTQI individuals.

His approach to therapy is tailored to each individual, and his or her needs. typically, he employs Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and psychodynamic techniques. After the initial evaluation, Dr. Elmore discusses what types of therapy he believes would be most helpful, and what those therapies entail, so that he and the client may choose together what therapeutic framework works best. If a specific therapy is indicated that is beyond his expertise, Dr. Elmore will assist in finding a therapist with expertise in that therapy.

Since completing residency, his work has included providing psychiatric care to homeless men and women at Coalition for the Homeless in New York City, providing crisis mental health services at Bellevue Hospital’s Interim Crisis Clinic, serving as the Associate Medical Director of Bellevue Hospital’s Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program and providing group therapy for LGBT asylum-seekers at the Bellevue/NYU Program for Survivors of Torture.

Message to clients

The decision to seek mental health treatment is often a difficult one and is one for which you should be commended. Should we work together, my primary aim is to create a safe, non-judgmental space so that you feel comfortable discussing anything you may be experiencing.

Depending on what we determine together, treatment may include medications, psychotherapy or both. My general approach to medication, if one is indicated, is to aim for the lowest dose that is effective for you.
