I utilize psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mindfulness techniques combined with psychopharmacologic medications, herbal remedies, and supplements.
My goal when I meet a new patient is to understand what they are going through and what has affected their life. If I work with you or your family member I will try and understand your situation and history and will get a sense of how to shape modalities of therapy to help you and/or your family member to overcome the problems. I see a range of ages from children and adolescents to adults. Although every individual problem is unique, I have expertise in Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) in children and adults, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

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.
