Dr. Katy Manetta, is a Licensed Psychologist and an advanced level Cognitive Behavior Therapist. She has over 15 years of experience in helping individuals with a wide variety of psychiatric disorders. She is a Diplomate of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy, which is an international organization that objectively evaluates clinical skill and awards diplomate status to only those with an advanced level of expertise.

Dr. Manetta received her PhD in Psychology from Loma Linda University’s APA Accredited Doctoral Program in 2006. While working towards her degree and licensure, Dr. Manetta had a broad range of training experiences in a variety of settings. During her practicum year, she treated veterans at the Loma Linda Veteran’s Hospital with diverse diagnoses including PTSD and major depression. Her internship year was spent at a local community college. She split her time between the counseling center, where she provided therapy for students, and the Learning Center, where she performed Learning Disability (LD) assessments and made recommendations for accommodations.

Dr. Manetta’s post-doctoral fellowship involved working with children of all ages and their families. During this experience, Dr. Manetta developed a reputation for her ability to manage patients and families with more severe and complex problems. She also discovered a passion for teaching and supervising others and learned the value of collaborating with other professionals who used evidencebased interventions.

In 2009, Dr. Manetta transitioned into private practice. She soon realized a need in the community for “true” cognitive-behavioral therapy, and her practice quickly grew. Dr. Manetta started searching for other CBT clinicians to join her and Belmont Psychological Services was born.

Dr. Manetta found that it was not easy to find well-trained CBT clinicians. In 2011, she started a small post-doctoral training program that has since advanced many extraordinary clinicians through licensure.

As Clinical Director for Belmont Psychological Services, Dr. Manetta currently provides psychotherapy to clients as well as clinical guidance to the other therapists in the practice. She works with individuals of all ages and with a wide range of mental health problems. Dr. Manetta is known for successfully treating clients who have had difficulty making progress in treatment in the past.

Dr. Manetta believes that being honest and open with her patients helps them to learn to trust others and begin to heal. When you meet her, she’ll say, “Please call me Katy”. She wants you to know that together, you are a team that will tackle anything that life throws your way.
