Psychiatrist located in San Diego, CA

About Dr. Duhaylongsod

Lisa Duhaylongsod, MD, is a psychiatrist and new addition to the MindSet team.

Lisa Duhaylongsod, MD earned her medical degree from the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine. She completed her psychiatry residency at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, then further completed a fellowship as Chief Resident in child & adolescent psychiatry.

Her path in psychiatry has been led by her fascination with the study of the brain as a complex processing unit of the body and how it plays a key role in translating the content of the mind (one’s thoughts, feelings, attitudes, beliefs, memories and imagination) into complex patterns of nerve cell firing and chemical release. Her undergraduate studies involved research at the Neurobiology Department at UCLA looking at the part of the brain that controls breathing. Interest in the inner workings of the brain led her to joining UCLA’s Laboratory of NeuroImaging that included research in Alzheimer’s Disease and early-onset schizophrenia in children. Although the study of the brain itself was intriguing, she found that working with patients and their families more satisfying and led to her desire to become a physician.

At USC+LAC her training and exposure was both broad and in-depth, as she trained and studied with experts in the field of psychiatry and thus honed her treatment approach and developed patient skills in a wide range of psychiatric diagnoses, such as ADHD, depressive and anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, psychosis and pervasive developmental disorders including autism spectrum disorders. Her experience has encompassed a variety of settings including outpatient clinics, inpatient, consult-liaison psychiatry, and the emergency department.

Dr. Duhaylongsod believes in a holistic approach to treatment - medications, if indicated, are just one part of the larger treatment plan which includes therapy and healthy lifestyle behaviors. She also believes in a team approach and enjoys collaborating with her patient’s physicians, therapists and other healthcare providers to help her patients thrive in their environment.

She lives with her husband and twins in beautiful San Diego where she enjoys partaking in local runs and outdoor activities with her family. She is a practitioner of the martial arts which she has found to reinforce the idea that our thoughts and emotions play a large role in our overall health and well-being, our outlook and our view of the world. She is working on earning her black belt, and enjoys coaching and mentoring kids at the dojo. These experiences have led to her belief that there is a distinct correlation between the positive or negative effects of our thoughts, feelings, beliefs and attitudes and our biological function. By the same token, how we treat our physical body—what we eat, how much we sleep and exercise—can impact our mental health as well. It is her goal to help her patients find that unique balance between the body and mind on their journey to become the best version of themselves.
