Of particular note, Mandi was a medical social worker in both primary care and medical/surgical floors at hospital systems in the Greater Boston are through COVID-19 pandemic. If you are a healthcare provider, seeking someone who understands the ‘shared language' because you were an essential employee and are struggling with that experience, please feel free to request me. With compassion and empathy, Mandi enters sessions without judgement. You are the only one who is uniquely you, and she is there to support what your goals are for your own life. Therapy Cat, Amelia, may make appearances and brighten the day. Be duly warned that she like analogies, painting pictures and describing what you are feeling with a meme or other visual image is important - sometimes we simply do not have the right words to describe what we are feeling! Mandi uses telehealth to see adults individually.
Outside of therapy, Mandi spends time with her wife and their Service Dog, River. She lives in Las Vegas NV and enjoys plenty of time at dog parks and hockey rinks. Mandi is a geek at heart, enjoying science and loads of space-based tv and movies.
