Liss - I did my About page and copied and pasted it onto my SUEMANDELTHERAPY site. So that's where it is. Scroll down this page to see my services. I've removed what I don't want and left the services I want to include. For relationship therapy let's use the couple we both like in blue shirts facing each other (she has the dark hair- do you remember them?). and for the childhood therapy please pick one that goes well and I"ll probably like it. THANKS! XOXO All the text from here down can be deleted. I just didn't want to in case it deleted anything else.
Dr. Mandel is a licensed marriage and family therapist (mft22333) in private practice, and holds a Ph.D. in clinical child psychology. She has a psychodynamic orientation to therapy, along with a psychobiological approach which draws upon scientific research from the areas of psychology, neuroscience, arousal theory and attachment theory to understand romantic love and intimate relationships. Dr. Mandel includes coaching when it best meets your needs and situation.
With 28 years of experience, I am dedicated to helping you feel more secure, confident and satisfied in the important areas of work, love and play. We'll pull together to loosen the grip of confusion and frustration, feeling stuck by behaviors and choices that contribute to---and help maintain---chronic self-defeat, lackluster relationships, and overall disappointment with life. Better understanding of early experiences and their powerful influence - discovered in the context of a trustworthy relationship - can generate compassion, awareness, and change leading to better interpersonal skills, resilience, flexibility, and more effective adaptations to life's challenges.
Hopefully, my office represents a comfortable haven where you can settle in; a place to share and explore what is most important to you. With humor when it fits and collaboration, I am engaged, attentive, compassionate, and focused on your needs. Respecting your limits, while encouraging new awareness, allows therapy to unfold at your pace.
