Aidin Tajbakhsh PhD, BCB, BCN

Dr. Tajbakhsh is dedicated to guiding individuals toward holistic mental wellness, rooted in the belief that empowerment and collaboration are vital for personal growth. He aligns with contemporary psychologists and philosophers who propose that the pursuit of happiness through eliminating all life’s pains and sufferings is like chasing a mirage, ultimately resulting in greater suffering and helplessness. Recognizing the inherent uniqueness of each individual’s subjective experience, Dr. Tajbakhsh adopts a collaborative approach and embraces his role as a co-traveler, guiding patients toward a more enriching and fulfilling life journey.

As a foundation of his therapeutic approach, Dr. Tajbakhsh utilizes Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to help individuals develop psychological flexibility in the face of life’s challenges by assisting them in gaining awareness of their internal and external experiences in the present, opening up and embracing all internal experiences, and developing a habit of engaging in value-oriented actions. As a board-certified biofeedback and neurofeedback specialist, along with didactic training in qEEG, he employs innovative techniques to assess and optimize mental well-being. Harnessing the power of biofeedback, Dr. Tajbakhsh guides individuals in gaining insight into their psychophysiological responses and teaches effective self-regulation strategies. Additionally, he provides neurofeedback, using brainwaves, to enhance mental focus, emotional regulation, and cognitive function. His certification in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) further complements his comprehensive understanding and approach to mental wellness, ensuring patients receive tailored and effective treatment options.

With a diverse academic background, Dr. Tajbakhsh earned his Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Eastern Mediterranean University, followed by a Master of Education in Educational Psychology from Central China Normal University. His journey continued at the California School of Professional Psychology | Alliant International University, San Diego, where he earned both his Master of Arts and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology.

For almost a decade, Dr Tajbakhsh has served diverse populations, ranging from patients of all ages with mild to severe mental health conditions, young adults with substance use problems, to college students going through life transitions. Currently, Dr. Tajbakhsh provides assessment and treatment to adults and youngsters who struggle with depression, anxiety, trauma, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, autism, chronic pain, personality disorders, and substance abuse.

Beyond his clinical expertise, Dr. Tajbakhsh’s multicultural and multilingual background, encompassing Persian (Farsi), Turkish, and Mandarin, uniquely positions him to connect with individuals from diverse backgrounds, particularly in Southern California.
