About Me

"Lindsay Kiriakos is an expert, advocate, and entrepreneur who was born in Montreal, Canada, but moved to Los Angeles, California at the age of five. Following his four years at Stanford University, where he earned not one but two degrees, he went on to medical school at the illustrious University of Pennsylvania, which dates back to 1740.

Kiriakos has always wanted to be a psychiatrist since he was a child. This was influenced in significant measure by his father and older sister, both of whom work in the field. That's why, after graduation, he did his Psychiatry Residency at the equally excellent Semel Neuropsychiatric Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

Lindsay Kiriakos's Adventure Until now

Lindsay Kiriakos graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Medical School with a doctorate in medicine. During that time, he also received the graduate prize for ""Excellence in Psychiatry"" - a sure sign of things to come.

At the UCLA Semel Neuropsychiatric Institute, he finished his residency in ""Adult Psychiatry."" He was the Interpersonal Psychotherapy Clinic's Chief Resident at the time. He advanced fast through the ranks to build a reputation for himself, a motif that would reoccur throughout his life.

Another similar thread running through his biography is his desire to give back to individuals in his community. For example, he was a clinical instructor at the UCLA Anxiety Disorders Clinic, which allowed him to interact closely with individuals he cared about to help them address some of their problems. Throughout his study, he worked hard to become certified in ""Cognitive Behavioral Therapy"" by Aaron Beck, MD, the concept's inventor. This enabled him to provide better service to those in need, allowing him to continue working hard and improving the lives of others around him.

He is most pleased of his career accomplishments, which include treating over 2,000 patients with various anxiety problems and providing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to an additional 1,000 people. He's also dedicated himself to being a source of useful information, having created psycho educational websites like AnxietyMD.com for that purpose.

Towards a More Promising Future

Throughout it all, one of Kiriakos' main beliefs is that we are never ""done"" learning. Regardless matter what we do for a living, we are continually learning. His, though, necessitates a more proactive strategy than most.

Anyone may rest on his initial education achievements, but that was never enough for Kiriakos. He was also an American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology diplomate. He was voted to the Southern California Psychiatric Society as a representative. He was given a fellowship by the American Academy of Psychiatry and Mental Health. The list might go on forever.

This is significant because psychiatry is a never-ending endeavor; giving people the chance to make significant improvements in their lives will always require time. What you're attempting to do is assist someone in addressing the specific challenges they're facing in a way that leads to beneficial behavioral or mental health adjustments in the future. Dr. Kiriakos' continual commitment to furthering his education - and consequently improving his abilities - is a big part of it.

He's also an author, with a book named "Panic Disorder: How to Fight Back and Win." Panic disorders are a form of anxiety disease marked by sudden and recurring bouts of dread, which are often accompanied by chest pain, shortness of breath, and other symptoms. This illness is projected to affect around 2.7 percent of individuals in the United States each year, a situation that has undoubtedly been exacerbated by the current COVID-19 pandemic. Overall, about 4.7 percent of adults will experience panic disorder at some point in their lives, and Lindsay Kiriakos felt it was vital to bring this up.

It's also why he created the interactive ""Choose Your Own Adventure Game"" titled ""Anxiety Quest,"" as well as the psychoeducational website SocialAnxiety.com to help educate people about exactly what's going on so that they can take the best steps to do something positive about it.

Lindsay Kiriakos is now a proud psychiatrist with a private practice in his hometown of Los Angeles. As of June 2022, he has been a licensed physician for more than two decades. He specializes in treating individuals, especially men, who suffer from a variety of anxiety disorders. He's a firm believer in the efficacy of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, a treatment that has long been shown to help with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, mental disease, and other concerns.

Lindsay Kiriakos enjoys spending time with his wife and children, playing chess, and reading about history when he is not at work. He fosters and rescues dogs in his neighborhood through the Animal Advocates Alliance and in collaboration with Remember Me Rescue. He's also a Disaster Healthcare Volunteer with the Medical Reserve Corps of Los Angeles."
