Care Philosophy

A binnacle holds a ship's compass and keeps it stable and safe while the ship pitches and rolls. I know the world can be stormy, and strive to provide patients with the care and treatment they need to weather even the roughest patches and move towards calm waters.

I chose Binnacle Psychiatry because this represents my treatment philosophy: meet people where they are, assist them to identify their goals and provide a safe and steady harbor they journey towards their goals.

Dr. Bay is the most compassionate health care provider. I have dealt with depressions, PTSD and alcoholism. She has never given up and has always looked for treatments that would be successful. She is by FAR the best medical professional I have ever had contact with.
Kirkland, WA |
Dr. Bay has really listened to my issues, when literally everyone else had dismissed my concerns. She gave me the benefit of the doubt, and there was plenty of room for doubt! She then gave me the single most important thing I've ever received, in the form of a question: Is it possible that he's anti-social? That question changed my life, helped me distinguish between what was real and what was not, & to perceive how"what was not" in no way meant I was"crazy". She saved me.

Dr. Bay was super in helping me understand my problem. She listened intently and diagnosed my situation quite accurately. She helped me straighten my life out. Basically, she was a life saver as well. Thank you.

Dr. Bay has been working with me for over a year. I?ve found her to be professional, caring and very interested in my well being. I wouldn?t be alive today if it were not for her knowledge and persistent desire to help me improve. She has helped me with my mental health and addiction, a very versatile doctor. I am blessed to have her in my life.

Dr. Bay is more than a prescriber, she is a great listener! She helped me when I thought help was not possible. I am forever grateful for her kindness and expertise, and I highly recommend her to others who struggle with mental illness.
