About Nirmaljit Dhami, MD
Dr. Nirmaljit Dhami is a psychiatrist with extensive experience and expertise in treating mental health issues in adults. She has a special interest in treating obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) in both men and women. And as medical director of El Camino Hospital's Maternal Outreach Mood Services Program, she works with women who are dealing with mental health or substance abuse issues during pregnancy and after delivery.
“We all have to confront the shame and stigma surrounding mental health issues. Recovery is possible from most mental health crises,” she explains.
To most thoroughly support her patients, Dr. Dhami takes a team approach that involves OB-GYNs, pediatricians, and partners and families. She strives to offer compassionate care that addresses each individual’s unique needs.
Dr. Dhami is well versed in a variety of treatment methods, including psychotherapy, psychopharmacology (medication) and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT).
Outside her practice, Dr. Dhami enjoys swimming, teaching Sunday school and watching golf — especially the U.S. Masters.
