Dr. Bloxham graduated with honors from New York University with a bachelor’s degree in Religious Studies. At NYU, he spent a year in London studying Psychology and Biology.

He pursued Psychiatry Residency training at UCLA-Resnick Neuropsychiatric Institute and West Los Angeles VA Medical Center, where he mentored junior residents as Chief Resident of the Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit. His background lends itself to taking an interest in understanding his patient’s life story to tailor effective treatments to address their concerns.

Dr. Bloxham has experience treating patients by combining medications and psychotherapy for complex psychiatric problems, including Mood and Anxiety Disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders, Trauma, and Stressor-Related Disorders, Psychotic Disorders, ADHD, interpersonal issues, and grief. He has specialty training in Reproductive Psychiatry (including assessment and treatment of premenstrual dysphoric disorder, infertility-associated mood/anxiety changes, postpartum depression/anxiety/OCD, and counseling patients taking medication who plan to become pregnant).

He is certified as an Interpersonal Psychotherapist and has specialized training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (including Exposure with Response Prevention for OCD). He is especially interested in reducing the stigma that often surrounds mental illness in general, including within religious/faith communities.‚Äč
