Jonathan (Jon) Deam, MD, is a psychiatrist and addiction specialist with experience treating depression, ADHD, anxiety, addictions and bipolar disorder among many other conditions.
After years of working with people from all walks of life, faiths, creeds and nationalities, Dr. Deam stumbled on a simple but challenging answer: to be loved, to be accepted, and to be connected to those we choose to love and accept.
Always drawn to those with stories, Dr. Deam has spent his career helping people navigate transitional, and sometimes painful, steps in life. Some of those stories have been joyful, some touched with sadness, and some touched by serious mental illness in need of treatment. Having lived and worked across all four corners of this country, Dr. Deam has seen we aren’t that different after all. The cities change, but the stories are the same.
From being the lead doctor on inpatient units, treating those with serious mental illness, to comforting a new mother overwhelmed in a routine appointment, the lesson is clear and lasting: Connect. Grow. Be you.
Dr. Deam is a member of the American Psychiatric Association, San Diego Psychiatry Society and the San Diego Psychological Association.
Dr. Deam is a fitness buff, lover of the outdoors and animals, and spends a lot of time playing guitar.
