Matthew Mandelbaum's approach

My approach is to build a strong therapeutic alliance with each client that combines support and validation with skill development to help reach goals. I customize cognitive, social and emotional interventions to each client’s unique strengths and needs.
I help clients clarify their values and to turn them into action plans that help reduce suffering and improve lives.
My goal for you is o improve decision making and problem-solving abilities, to reduce the effects of pain and suffering, and to increase resilience.

My clients include those working in business, healthcare, the arts, education, emerging adults, and university students.
