BTI provides psychotherapy for individuals of all ages, as well as for couples, families and groups.  The diversity of our professional disciplines allows BTI to offer a uniquely comprehensive range of mental health services.


Professional services offered at the Berkeley Therapy Institute (BTI) include outpatient psychotherapy;  professional consultations with attorneys, businesses and community agencies; and psychiatric treatment and medication consultation.

In addition to providing direct patient care, BTI has served as a training institute for clinical psychology interns for over 40 years.  Most of our professional staff are actively involved in the leading professional organizations and several staff members hold teaching positions at local professional schools, colleges, and universities.

All BTI clinical staff members are licensed by the State of California, with the clinical skill and experience to diagnose and treat a wide spectrum of mental and substance abuse disorders.  Most of the staff have pursued advanced training and developed expertise in particular specialties.  The following clinical areas are of special interest to us:
