 Point of View: I work with professionals in business, healthcare, and education, emerging adults, and university students to increase their abilities for identity development, social growth, and professional and academic achievement.  My focus lies at the intersection of education, psychology, and social entrepreneurship to help you meet goals and a build life of worth across all domains.

I believe that the human capacities for hope, faith, and optimism are present in everyone, and that these capacities can be cultivated through DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy).  This therapy offers targeted, practical strategies to help you reach your goals.

You deserve to develop your most authentic self, by becoming more mindful of the context of the present moment and by developing an array of strategies that can help you tolerate stress, regulate your emotions, and build high quality relationships.  You deserve to tap into and develop your inherent wisdom.  I want to help you with the process of empowering yourself to make decisions clearly and to be more effective in your thinking, acting, and doing.  I want to help you recognize all of the areas where you have strength and teach you how you can use your gifts to make improvements in areas of need.

It is exciting for me to help people become more reflective, and more motivated towards, and more skilled at making change in their lives.

I want to give you more options to choose from in various aspects of your life and help increase your skills at evaluating and selecting from these options.  My goal is to help you improve your level of resilience, self-concept, self-worth, self-esteem, and self-efficacy.

In all, my aim is to help you be you.  Let’s begin the process.

What Will I Do?

In Dialectical Behavior Therapy, you will learn to replace maladaptive behaviors with more helpful ones.  These new behaviors will be a part of one of four categories: Mindfulness (the ability to be wise and in the present moment), Interpersonal Effectiveness (the ability to form productive relationships with self-respect), Emotion Regulation (the ability to understand and manage the full range of emotions), and Distress Tolerance (the ability to take care of yourself during sub-optimal times).

What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)?

DBT was developed to help people build a “Build a Life Worth Living,” as creator Dr. Marsha Linehan says.  Dr. Matthew Mandelbaum finds that it can help people “Build a Life of Worth”.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) was developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan. It is an evidence-based treatment designed to help people “Build a Life Worth Living,” as Dr. Marsha Linehan says.  DBT combines Western practices of cognitive behavioral therapy with Eastern contemplative practices of mindfulness to create problem solving skills that bring about change.   With dialectics, people learn to avoid black and white thinking and can learn to tolerate ambiguity to see the potential for development.  Originally developed  to worked with clients who have borderline personality disorder, DBT has been used to treat those who have depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, PTSD, eating disorders and other conditions.

People have come to DBT seeking help with life skills that cover  four main competencies: mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation and distress tolerance.

Why Choose Dr. Matthew G. Mandelbaum, PhD, MSEd, MA?

I believe in the human capacities for hope, faith, and optimism. These capacities can be learned. DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) can be a helpful way for many to learn them.  I believe that the learning can take place in an environment that incorporates joy and seriousness.  I believe in the power of the journey to create a more authentic self.   When it comes to understanding Executives, Business Professionals, Emerging Adults, Educators, and University Students, I can relate on multiple levels, because I have been them all and I have worked with all of those populations.  I know about developing hopes and dreams and about creating an action plan to turn dreams into reality.  I understand that sometimes life unfolds itself in a non-linear way and that not all those who wander are lost.
