Approach

Holistic Care

Dr. Mann has a collaborative and open approach to her work with individuals, families, and couples. She enjoys providing holistic, integrated treatment to her patients and has experience working with a wide range of ages, disorders, and cultural backgrounds. She has a special interest in providing care for young children with anxiety, trauma, and neurodevelopmental disorders as well as pregnant, postpartum, and breastfeeding moms.

Balanced Treatment

With psychotherapy, Dr. Mann helps individuals understand patterns of thinking and feeling that can bring life experiences into perspective and inspire positive change. While psychotherapy is a powerful tool for self-knowledge that can render long-lasting change, medication can also be a useful adjunct treatment. Dr. Mann works closely with her patients to find the right balance and approach for each individual.


Services

  • Initial Consultation

    During an initial consultation, we will begin discussing medical and psychiatric history, family, and social factors. This is done over two to three meetings. Dr. Mann may recommend labs, other studies, or referrals to other medical specialists as appropriate so that any complicating issues can be properly addressed.

    If the patient is a young child, Dr. Mann usually meets with parents first before meeting the child. If the patient is an adolescent, both the parents and the adolescent are invited to the first meeting. Dr. Mann may recommend school observation as part of the evaluation process to better understand difficulties relating to academic and social functioning.

    Once the evaluation is completed, a treatment plan will be discussed and decided upon. Treatment recommendations are based on the best current research and clinical evidence available.

  • Psychotherapy

    Psychotherapy is an opportunity to openly express yourself to better understand your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. While older children, adolescents, and adults can engage in "talk therapy," young children express themselves best through play.

    As we identify certain themes and maladaptive patterns that may be contributing to your struggles, we will work to develop better coping strategies to help improve the quality of your life. I am confident that each individual can reach his or her best potential by using inherent strengths and resilience when combined with appropriate support.

  • Medication Management

    Following the initial consultation, medication may be recommended to treat specific disorders or symptoms (eg. depression, anxiety, inattention, insomnia, etc.) either in conjunction with psychotherapy or separately.
