Summary

As a licensed clinical psychologist with extensive experience and expertise in research, Robin Yeganeh, PhD, treats patients with a variety of anxiety and depressive disorders in the San Francisco Bay Area. Dr. Robin Yeganeh primarily specializes in a unique form of treatment called cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), a behavior-based therapy that seeks to address emotional dysfunction through a structured goal-based system. He also works on therapies focusing on the popular concept of mindfulness, non-judgmental moment to moment awareness, as a means to alleviate emotional problems. Through CBT and mindfulness-based interventions, Dr. Robin Yeganeh works closely with patients to enhance their health, treat conditions such as generalized anxiety disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and trains individuals in communication, social skills, and parenting.

Dr. Robin Yeganeh founded the Cognitive Behavior Therapy & Mindfulness Center, located at the Bishop Ranch Business Park in San Ramon, California. Established in 2007, Dr. Yeganeh created the Cognitive Behavior Therapy & Mindfulness Center to provide clients with scientifically supported psychotherapy, as well as organizational consulting for those looking to enhance satisfaction in the workplace. Overall, Dr. Yeganeh provides CBT and mindfulness-based treatment to people ranging from children to adults who possess anxiety and depressive disorders which he assesses using unstructured and semi-structured assessments. He also enjoys work with external organizations to create customized employee wellness programs that use mindfulness techniques to promote work stress reduction and overall well-being. Recently, he co-authored the paper 'Cognitive Behavioral Executive Coaching: A structure for Increasing Leader Flexibility" in the OD Practitioner where he and his colleagues proposed a model for bringing scientific work in the field of psychology into business consulting practices. 

Prior to starting the Cognitive Behavior Therapy & Mindfulness Center, Dr. Robin Yeganeh worked for the University of California, San Diego, and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs San Diego Healthcare System where for three years he worked to treat veterans in the Greater San Diego area. During this period, he developed treatment programs in Exposure Therapy for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and CBT/Mindfulness based interventions for mixed ruminative disorders.  Prior to his work in California, he researched anxiety and depressive disorders for a variety of institutions in Maryland, including the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the Maryland Center for Anxiety Disorders. With three degrees in psychology from the University of Maryland at College Park, including his Doctorate, he holds membership in the Association of Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies and the International OCD Foundation, among others.
