AMHA Medical Group in Torrance is a private, outpatient based group of leading Psychiatrists, Psychologists, MFCC's, LCSW's and Psychotherapists. Under the direction of James Pratty, M.D., the founder of AMHA Medical Group, this multi-disciplinary team of mental health professionals has had the opportunity to play an active role in the growth and recovery of all kinds of people. We have the opportunity, because we believe that every one in need of our help is important, and deserves to be treated that way.

With the resources of our team, we are able to meet the individual needs of youth, men, women and families experiencing the turmoil brought on by common situations such as: an addicted loved one, an undeniable depression, or the grief of loss.                              

Our primary goal is to help individuals and families find a way to feel whole again. Complete. Fulfilled. Important.
