About us

Life Psychiatry, LLC is a private mental health clinic located in Mobile, Alabama that provides comprehensive psychiatric services to children, teens, and adults of all ages. 

Our purpose

1. To bring about positive change in the Mobile community by providing individualized care and focusing on healing one patient at a time.
2. To be an emotionally healthy community that promotes self-love and compassion among our patients, their families, and our staff.
3. To empower our patients to maximize their potential and become agents of healing within their families and communities.

Why Life Psychiatry?

Just as nature experiences distinct seasons — spring, summer, fall, and winter — we all encounter seasons of personal struggle, feeling stuck, or frustrated in relationships (or even with ourselves). Seeking help during these challenging times is not a sign of failure or a lack of faith. Instead, it reflects a recognition of our human vulnerability and a need for God’s guidance and healing touch.

During challenging times, it can be beneficial to seek support from a trusted medical doctor like Dr. Diaz — a board-certified psychiatrist — and a team of medical professionals. Together, we can help you navigate the complexities of your current life season and provide guidance and support to help you find your way through difficulties.

At our practice, we are dedicated to providing quality mental health services to individuals and families. Our knowledgeable and talented team offers a safe, supportive environment where you can feel comfortable and heard. We do our best to foster an open environment where trust and respect are the foundation of our patient relationships.

Trauma Informed Care

Life Psychiatry in South Alabama stands out as a unique mental health clinic that embraces a holistic approach to patient care. Rooted in Trauma-Informed Care, the clinic recognizes the diverse impacts of trauma on individuals throughout their lives. Instead of just identifying presenting issues and prescribing medication, Life Psychiatry focuses on providing coping mechanisms and healing emotional wounds rather than escapist strategies. By specializing in individualized, trauma-informed medical care, the clinic ensures that each patient’s unique needs are addressed and treated accordingly.

About Dr. Diaz, M.D.

Dr. Carlos M. Diaz is a patient-centered Board Certified Psychiatrist that emphasizes compassionate and culturally-literate patient care. He treats adults, children, and adolescents with a wide range of psychiatric diagnoses and specializes in trauma informed care.

Dr. Diaz’s unique perspective centers around the belief that not all patients have physiological psychiatric issues, but rather face challenges in living life. He takes pride in empowering his patients to reach their full potential, recognizing that they personally possess the inner strength to overcome obstacles.

A native New Yorker, Dr. Diaz obtained his medical degree from the American University of Antigua, completed his psychiatry residency in Miami, FL, and graduated from his fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, AL. He fell in love with Mobile as a former psychiatrist at Altapointe Health.

Our approach to care

Life Psychiatry implements a three-part mental health treatment process:

Step 1: Evaluation

As a new patient, we will take the time to get to know you thoroughly. We will have an in-depth conversation about your history, background, past experiences, and challenges. Through a series of questions and assessments, we aim to understand how your body and brain function. Dr. Diaz has a well-deserved reputation for his ability to effectively work with both children and adults, providing high-quality care to all patients.

Step 2: Diagnosis & Treatment

With a clinical diagnosis, we can create a customized treatment plan that is tailored to your unique needs and experiences. Dr. Diaz employs medication only when necessary, taking the time to explain its physiological effects and collaborating with you to ensure it aligns with your psychiatric goals. Paired with cognitive behavioral therapy, counseling, and real-talk to get to the root of issues, we will see healing and progress toward a better future.

Step 3: Maintenance

All patients are different and will see progress over different timeframes but it’s through regular maintenance, medication management (if needed), therapy, and follow up appointments that we can measure your progress and improvement over time.

Our goal is to get you living your best life — so good that you never have to come back to see us at Life Psychiatry!
