Katie Dashtban, Psy.D.
Co-Founder Feeling Good Therapy and Training Center of Fremont
Dr. Dashtban has been a licensed clinical psychologist in California since 2008. She received her Doctor of Psychology degree from the California School of Professional Psychology, Alliant International University in the San Francisco Bay area. Her area of clinical emphasis is in behavioral medicine, which is an interplay between medicine and psychology. Since 1985 when Dr. Dashtban was introduced to the field of psychology, she studied Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and based her clinical and research emphasis on the premise of CBT. In 2009 Dr. Dashtban was introduced to the T.E.A.M model by Dr. David Burns, M.D. Since then she has continued her studies in TEAM at Stanford weekly seminars and in 2013 she joined hands with other clinicians in the opening of the Feeling Good Institute and was among the first group of Institute Fellows. In 2014 she completed her final level of training in TEAM therapy at FGI as a Level 4 Certified TEAM Trainer and therapist and in the same year she co-founded the Feeling Good Therapy and Training Center of Fremont with Dr. Karen Yeh.
At the Fremont Center, Dr. Dashtban uses the TEAM method, a highly effective, CBT based and patient-centered style of psychotherapy to treat patients with anxiety and mood disorders, those struggling with unwanted habits and addictions, and those struggling with chronic health conditions.
At the Fremont Center, Dr. Dashtban also leads weekly live on-line TEAM training classes to clinicians from the United States and around the world. She also teaches TEAM on a one-to one basis to clinicians interested in learning TEAM and implementing it into their clinical practices. Dr. Dashtban co-leads a weekly TEAM consultation class to clinicians within the center and those from the community. The purpose of the TEAM consultation class is to offer support to clinicians wishing to improve their clinical casework, deepen their learning in the TEAM model, and advance their credentialing for certification in the TEAM model.
