Britney's Therapist -- A Real Pro, Finally

2/1/2008 8:17 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The woman treating Britney Spears is -- thankfully -- being praised by her colleagues for her compassion and her credentials.

Dr. Deborah Nadel is "an excellent clinician and an excellent psychiatrist," says Harold Young, Clinical Director at the Maple Counseling Center in Beverly Hills, to People.

Board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, Nadel graduated from University of California Medical School in San Francisco 18 years ago, and she did her residency at UCLA, records show.


Giant Mistake? Strahan and Eddie's Ex?


Just four days before the biggest football game of his life, TMZ spies spotted New York Giant defensive superstar Michael Strahan eating dinner with Eddie Murphy's ex-wife, Nicole Mitchell. We thought Strahan played on the line, not in the sloppy secondary!

The two enjoyed a three-way dinner date with Snow Queen Vodka bigshot Roland Hill at Asia De Cuba in Scottsdale. Why catch-up on game film, or go to bed early when you can do a late night dinner with a babe and a booze king?! It's not like you're playing the greatest team in NFL history or anything.

Party Favors: Audrina Has a Kid? ... Another Giant (Rookie) Mistake ... Palms Talks Turkish in New Spa


This is truly the logical extreme of reality "star" watching: Audrina Patridge has a niece! reports Us. ... The New York Giants are popping Airborne like mad to avoid getting sick before the Super Bowl, but cornerback Aaron Ross popped a whole tab instead of dropping it in water -- a "rookie mistake," he says. ... The Palms' Drift Spa will be using Turkish techniques -- Vegas' first hammam, "a co-ed sanctuary" where people will be able to steam it up. And the Palms Place tower, opening in March, will be lit up.

Well, maybe all the armchair physicans that appear on this board will shut up and that includes TMZ. Only the doctor REALLY KNOWS what the heck is wrong with her and guess what, Britards? It's nothing that only a) her getting to see her sons, or b) the paps leaving her alone or c) going to back to Lousiana with her greedy mother will cure! She need MEDICAL TREATMENT.

Thank you GOD! She will get the help she needs at last. And People is reporting that Britney selected this Psychiatrist from a list presented by her lawyers. I think it's telling that she made the decision for herself. This is a giant step for her in taking control of her life. Now we just need to sit back and let her heal.

Can't people like Strahan find someone that's not someone famous ex-wife? Don't forget she has five of Eddie Murphy's kids, wow!

Thank God Ms. Spears is finally in the hands of a qualified medical specialist and not a quack like Blowhard Phil. I hope for her recovery and that she is finally reunited with her 2 babies when the time is right. The jerk amnager needs to take a much needed hike and all the other no gooders need to be put out. Whether she and her family can work things out is not the important thing. Her mental and physical health is most important.
