Dr. Tracey Dashjian
My name is Dr. Tracey Dashjian and I am a licensed Counseling Psychologist in the state of California (PSY 28041). I have nine years of experience working in a variety of therapeutic settings, including: university/college counseling centers, community mental health and skilled care nursing facilities.
I received my B.S. in psychology from Saint Mary’s College of California, right here in the Bay Area. From there, I earned my Ph.D. in counseling psychology from the American Psychological Association-accredited program at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. I then returned to California to finish my training for licensure, completing my internship at California State University, Northridge and my postdoc at Claremont University Consortium. I’m excited to be back, providing support to my community in the East Bay Area!
I view therapy as an exploration process, where client and therapist collaboratively work together to create insight and positive change. My approach to therapy can be broadly described as a combination of humanistic, interpersonal, and cognitive-behavioral philosophies. I believe that clients are diverse persons who require a unique therapeutic experience based on their distinct concerns and needs.
My clinical interests are wide ranged, and include: identity development, anxiety, depression, relationship/interpersonal difficulties, multicultural counseling, mindfulness, and LGBTQ-related concerns (including many years of clinical and research experience). I enjoy working with both men and women, ages ranging from young adult (18 y.o.) to older adults (65+). Please see Services for a more thorough list of concerns that Dr. Seay and I work with.
Please call 707-816-0963 if you'd like to learn more about psychotherapy/my approach, or would like to set up an appointment with me.
I look forward learning more about you!
