Adam Frey, MD


In my psychiatry practice, I aim to establish a warm, collaborative relationship with patients, providing evidence-based support and intervention in a manner that is understandable, helpful and compassionate.



Adam Frey, MD

While diagnosis and medication treatment is often an early focus, in my experience much of the meaningful work is based on getting to know a person, and from there confronting discomforts and engaging therapeutically within a safe environment. It is a privilege to provide this care, and I defend confidentiality as paramount. I encourage mindful self-compassion and forgiveness as a therapeutic approach to alleviating many depressive and anxious problems. I hold a core belief that much of mental and emotional suffering stems from isolation. I particularly enjoy helping address social anxiety and navigating the challenges of relationship intimacy. Working with the person as a whole, I actively support the maintenance of personal interests, sense of vocational accomplishment, physical fitness, comfort with body image, healthy diet and sleep. Medical illness and disability is fully appreciated and factored into treatment.

Prior to joining Pacific Coast Psychiatric Associates, I had the pleasure of providing outpatient clinical care to the students of UC Berkeley and UC San Francisco for ten years. I am drawn to the curiosity, diversity, and creative energy of youth, and the reward of seeing young people develop and mature. I have also worked in inpatient, emergency, and correctional (jail) settings, as well as private practice. I have experience treating depression, bipolar, anxiety, panic, obsessive-compulsive, attention-deficit, sleep, substance, eating, post-traumatic and psychotic illness. I earned my Medical Degree from Jefferson Medical College, in Philadelphia, and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. I was born and raised in southeast Pennsylvania and migrated to the west coast after medical school. After interning at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, I completed my psychiatry residency at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco in 2008 and enjoy living in the Bay Area.
