My name is Jerry Gelbart. I was born in Cleveland, Ohio, went to college in Ann Arbor at the University of Michigan and received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. I attended medical school at Ohio State University, and trained in Psychiatry at UCLA. I’ve been in private practice for 30+ years. I have helped many people suffering from psychological symptoms with medication and firmly advocate biologic methods of treatment. I’ve had an even greater passion, however, for teaching people how to understand their emotions, and how to put that information to use to reduce problematic symptoms and find greater fulfillment in life.

I can help with many issues, such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder , OCD, neurodivergent challenges and more.
Are you looking for a psychiatrist who takes the time to listen and understand your needs? Perhaps you’re feeling overwhelmed, or you’re sad without even knowing why. Many of my patients have had trouble finding a provider who gets what they’re going through. Or, they’ve been afraid to see anyone due to fear of what people will think of them. I offer a non-judgmental, holistic approach to psychiatry. With the right support and treatment, you can overcome many of your symptoms. You can live the way you’re meant to – focused more on the positives in life and enjoying each day to the fullest.

I have experience working with a variety of mental disorders, but I have the most experience treating depression, anxiety, bipolar , and ADHD.
I have been working as a psychiatric nurse practitioner for approximately three years. I started my career at a community health center working with a variety of diagnoses. I moved onto a private practice clinic afterwards that specialized in ADHD treatment. I also work for a Nonprofit Korean Clinic that serves the marginalized community. I believe that treating mental health disorder should be holistic where multiple modalities are encouraged to address symptoms. Therefore, I am fairly conservative with how I prescribe medications as I believe in the importance of nonpharmacologic interventions in complementing treatment.

Bipolar Disorder Psychiatrists
The defining feature of bipolar disorder is mania. It can be the triggering episode of the disorder, followed by a depressive episode, or it can first manifest after years of depressive episodes. The switch between mania and depression can be abrupt, and moods can oscillate rapidly. But while an episode of mania is what distinguishes bipolar disorder from depression, a person may spend far more time in a depressed state than in a manic or hypomanic one.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Orinda is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Orinda Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication as well as practice psychotherapy in treatment. Sometimes, Psychiatrists form part of a clinical team in which they will diagnose and prescribe, while psychologists or therapists provide the client's psychotherapy.

As part of a clinical assessment, Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, take blood tests, and order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans, and MRIs.

The field of psychiatry in Orinda has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.

Other related sub-specialties include cognition psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, psychosomatic, forensic, reproductive medicine specialties, psychopharmacology , psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Orinda, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Orinda Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
