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.

It has revolutionized lives of my patients struggling with Autism, ADHD, OCD and executive functioning deficits.
I'm a board-certified, integrative pediatric and adult psychiatrist. I work with people interested in targetting root causes of suffering as much as possible. We know that for many, the roots can be psychological and in brain connections/wiring. New therapies allow us to target both of these more than ever.: Neurofeedback, TMS, Genetic and EEG markers that can personalize lifestyle, supplement and medication treatment. When properly used in the right setting, ketamine is known to dramatically speed up psychotherapy progress.

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.

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Psychiatrists
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviors that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions). It affects children, kids, teens and adults. Often the person carries out the behaviors to get rid of the obsessive thoughts, but this only provides temporary relief. Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety. A person's level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, it can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school or even to lead a comfortable existence in the home.
