Sandra T. Mann, PsyD
I am a licensed clinical psychologist who practices with a contemporary psychodynamic orientation in the Denver metro area. I provide psychotherapy to adolescents and adults in individual, couples, and group formats. I utilize the therapeutic relationship to alter life struggles people find in relationships, career, and life. In tailoring the treatment to the specific individuals with whom I work, I borrow tools from other evidence-based approaches, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness and meditation. I value the differences that each individual brings to the therapy relationship. I am sensitive to and experienced in working with individuals from diverse backgrounds and cultures, and with those who may identify with nontraditional roles, relationships, and/or lifestyles.
I also conduct psychological assessment with school-aged children, adolescents, and adults when a deeper understanding of their intellectual abilities and personality styles may provide significant benefit. A psychological assessment can address questions about diagnosis and cognitive challenges, and help plan an approach to treatment by providing a well-rounded picture of how an individual relates with others, approaches the world, and manages stress and inner conflict.
Aside from working directly with clients, I train graduate students entering the fields of psychology, social work, and counseling. I serve as Director of Clinical Training at Maria Droste Counseling Center, and as Adjunct Faculty and supervisor at the University of Denver. I hold membership in the American Psychological Association and the National Register of Health Service Psychologists and have been published in professional journals. Through these endeavors, I continually enrich my understanding of effective therapeutic practice. I can be reached by email at email@example.com to schedule a free, 15 minute consultation.
