I am Margaret November. Originally a New Yorker, I have lived and practiced in California for over 30 years. 
I specialize in Psychiatry, Psychotherapy & Psychopharmacology. My preference is in treating the whole patient, which includes the psychotherapy as well as medication, if indicated.
 I treat adults and children 17 years of age or older. 

My treatment style is based on my knowledge of the biologic and social components of illness. Together we will build trust and a specialized treatment plan that is right for you and your life style.

I am qualified to order diagnostic laboratory tests and to prescribe medications, evaluate and treat psychological and interpersonal problems, and to intervene with families who are coping with stress, crises, and other problems in living.

My specialties include diagnosis and treatment of various disorders such as mental, addictive, emotional, anxiety and more. 

I hope to hear from you.
