Join The Movement

Feeling Good Institute was established in 2010 by a group of Stanford University clinicians mentored by Dr. David Burns, one of the forefathers of CBT and author of many books, including Feeling Good, The New Mood Therapy. Today, more than 10,000 clinicians have been trained in Dr. Burns’ approach at the institute. In addition to our trainings, we provide clinicians a suite of services to support them in their ongoing improvement and help them thrive as private practitioners. 

We have designed a training program for supervisees interested in preparing for a career as excellent therapists in private practice using an approach that is both humanistic and client centered as well as goal oriented, data-driven and evidence-based. Our program is suitable for post graduate supervisees primarily within CA and NY States as well as many other states within the USA (Usually AMFTs, ASWs, MHCs, PCCS, and PsyD/PhDs postdocs) who are able to practice using telehealth or in-person therapy sessions. Supervisees are paid for their time and are expected to be available for 10 or more hours of supervised patient care and 2-4 hours of training per week for a period of two years.
