Mitra Farzaneh, BA

Intake Team

Mitra originally joined CBT Associates as part of the admin team in our Downtown office. Through her hard work and dedication, Mitra then moved to the Intake team in September, and has been a key team member since!


Mitra obtained her BA in Psychology from Ryerson University. She has gained experience with different populations in a research context through her work with caregivers and older adults at the Stress and Healthy Aging Lab at Ryerson, as well as with children at the Child Development Institutes’ Integra Program. Mitra gained extensive clinical experience as a psychometrist at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre before joining CBT Associates. After several months as an Administrative Assistant at CBTA’s Downtown location, Mitra was very excited to join the Intake team. Her previous work experience and passion for improving access to reliable mental health services made the transition to this role a natural shift. Mitra is excited to delve further into the field of clinical psychology in her journey to become a practicing clinician.
