Compassionate CBT

Individualized to Your Values and Goals

Dr. Mina Yadegar


My name is Dr. Mina Yadegar, but you can call me Mina.


I am a child, adolescent, and adult licensed clinical psychologist (CA PSY30287, FL TPPY307, HI PSY2071). I opened my private practice to provide patients with compassionate evidence-based care tailored to their values and goals. It takes courage to seek therapy, and I am dedicated to creating a warm and inviting place where you feel supported and encouraged to grow. I genuinely believe all of my patients deserve exceptional care and a chance to thrive.

I provide compassionate CBT via telehealth to individuals and families in California, Florida, and Hawaii

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) 

My expertise lies in CBT for OCD, anxiety, tics, body-focused repetitive behaviors (BFRBs), as well as behavior challenges (ADHD, temper tantrums). 


Treatment recommendations and plans are customized per patient. Treatment frequency can vary from weekly to multiple sessions per week depending on each patient’s needs. Intensive treatment of multiple sessions per week may be recommended to patients with severe symptoms or who would like to accelerate treatment. For patients who start with intensive treatment, session frequency is usually decreased over time, as patients progress and meet their treatment goals.
