Bay Psychiatric Associates provides a full range of mental health services, including hospital-based programs, office, and interventional psychiatry including Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS).


Outpatient Services

We have a broad range of professional experiences and interests including child and adolescent psychiatry, general adult psychiatry, addiction psychiatry and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS).

Our psychiatrists can provide:

  • Psychiatric evaluation and development of a treatment plan
  • Psychotherapy that incorporates aspects of dynamic, interpersonal, CBT, and DBT therapies
  • Psychopharmacological evaluation, treatment and management
  • Second opinion evaluations of psychopharmacologic treatments
  • Forensic/ medical-legal evaluations

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

TMS is a revolutionary new treatment for depression. The response rate compares very favorably with other available treatments and because it does not involve medications, there are no systemic side effects. Our BayTMS clinic was the first of its kind in the East Bay and remains one of the most robust such services in Northern California.


Hospital-Based Services

Bay Psychiatric Associates provides inpatient psychiatric services at the Herrick campus of Alta Bates Summit Medical Center (ABSMC) in Berkeley. Herrick Hospital has been serving the East Bay community for over 100 years since it first opened in 1904. The psychiatry service currently comprises two adult units, a med/psych unit and an adolescent unit. In addition, there are two adult partial hospitalization or day treatment programs, an eating disorders program and an adolescent program. The hospital also operates a state-of-the-art ECT clinic.
