Why Matthew Mandelbaum chose to be in the helping profession

This has always been my path. When I was in kindergarten, my teacher said, "Matthew will either be a rabbi or a psychiatrist."

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. I help each client in the process of becoming an authentic self who is capable of being effective in all areas of life. My clients include those working in business, healthcare, the arts, education, emerging adults, and university students.

What you can expect from sessions with Matthew Mandelbaum

I provide individual and group therapy, and combine dialectical behavior therapy with teaching, learning, and entrepreneurship to help engage clients in the process of behavioral change. Overall, I help each client become a skillful problem-solver, who is more empowered and more adept at transforming challenges into successes.
