“After training in Adult and then Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Harvard, and practicing psychiatry in Boston for over 30 years, I'm delighted to return to my Bay Area roots and open a new practice. I have worked with all ages and a variety of modalities, from play therapy to talk therapy, and I consider and prescribe medication when appropriate. My style can be described as engaged, pragmatic and accessible. I believe that our symptoms are often our bodies' way of asking for help.

Lucas Jones, Psychiatrist  in Oakland
“If you are seeking treatment, you may be feeling overwhelmed, helpless, anxious, or depressed. You may feel unable to escape the past, caught in self-defeating cycles, or at a loss to understand yourself or your behavior. My goal is to bring clarity to your suffering, to get to the bottom of your difficulties and to help enable you to live life at your greatest capacity. Medications can be useful when necessary for the alleviation of certain symptoms. However, my professional interest lies especially in the healing potential of the therapeutic relationship.

Oakland, California 94611
“I am a board certified adult psychiatrist and see patients for therapy with or without medication. My focus is in Depression, Anxiety, and OCD. However, what I emphasize in sessions is not the general diagnosis but the particularity, uniqueness, and subjectivity of a patient. I strive to create a space in which the patient's subjectivity emerges. Then to explore and work through what emerges in this process guides me. My hope is that a patient becomes more aware of themselves, their issues, and through this process achieve a sense of satisfaction and joy.

James Yandell, Psychiatrist  in Berkeley
“I'm a Jungian analyst and psychiatrist practicing in north Berkeley. My practice is with adults of all ages from college students to the mature and elderly. Although I'm interested in issues of outer life, my major focus is on reclaiming authentic self that has been submerged in outer adaptation, and in individuation (Jung's term for adult psychological development.) As a Jungian I value dreams, pictures, journaling, and other depth material but don't limit myself to the unconscious. I do a good deal of telephone work, after an initial period of direct contact.

Hal Bornstein, Psychiatrist  in Oakland
“Having worked as both a Child and Adult psychiatrist, I have seen people of all ages who present with a wide variety of issues. Although more recently my work has been mainly focused around medication, I previously focused more on therapy. I have come to appreciate how medicine can play a significant role in clients' treatment. However, my general approach is to have therapy play a significant role, too. I often work in conjunction with the clients' therapist but have also been both the therapist and medication provider for some clients. As a board certified psychiatrist, I also enjoy seeing adults.

“I earned a Ph.D. in cognitive neuropsychology from UC Berkeley before attending medical school at UC San Francisco and later specializing in psychiatry at New York University. As a result, I have a thorough understanding of the neural pathways involved in emotions and cognition, how they develop, how they are regulated, and the relevant neurotransmitters. I have applied my training to develop a specific expertise in identifying and treating ADHD in adults. While neural pathways affect behavior, your mind doesn't exist in a vacuum. Your mind developed and operates under distinct circumstances.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Alameda County Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication or psychotropics. Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans and MRIs.

Some psychiatric practitioners in Alameda County specialize in age groups (so check for Alameda County child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Alameda County). Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists or geropsychiatrists.

Other related specialties include psychopharmacology (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics and neuroimaging.

Psychiatric nurses in Alameda County, or mental health nurses, specialize in nursing care for people with mental illness or mental distress. Alameda County Psychiatric nurses receive training in psychological therapies (such as CBT), building therapeutic alliance with clients and dealing with challenging behavior. Importantly, they are trained to administer psychiatric medication (or 'psychiatric meds') and, in very limited ways, to prescribe meds.

Nurses monitor for side effects and responses to medical treatments and offer information on meds so that clients can make informed choices about their use.
