About Us

Our Philosophy

To provide exceptional and personalized patient care that is compassionate, evidence-based, and holistic.

Our Story

In 1994, a small group of psychiatrists formed Bay Psychiatric Associates because they recognized the need for a more effective and collaborative model of care. Our success led to the addition of outpatient and interventional services, with expansion to multiple locations. Today, BPA maintains a uniquely democratic workplace where patient care and physician autonomy are paramount. We are proud to offer a continuum of clinical care that is both holistic and individualized, with support for physicians to continue to learn and refine their clinical skills. For our physicians and our patients, we recognize the value of collaboration, creativity, and community in creating and sustaining well-being.


With over a quarter century in the San Francisco Bay Area, we have deep ties to our community. With every decision, we are committed to serving and improving the mental health of our community.


Our doctors will work with you as an individual, not an algorithm. Our physicians are encouraged to develop expertise and investigate new technologies to provide you the most effective care.


Our physicians enjoy a flexible and collegial workplace, which translates into exceptional care. As our patient, you will be treated with compassion and respect as a partner in your care.
