More About Patty-Jo Mantel
My clinical interests include integrative medicine and helping people with anxiety, depression/mood disorders, substance abuse, and other mental health issues. I have a certification in geriatrics and am interested in helping manage problematic behaviors in persons with dementia.
My clinical approach is to value each person as precious and marvelously unique. I listen first and try as much as I can to find non-pharmacological approaches and medications that fit a person and help them in their mental health struggles. I try to help patients tap into their own motivations and to find meaning and purpose in life. I like to incorporate functional medicine into my practice whenever possible by using a holistic mind-body approach. My therapeutic philosophy includes a variety of approaches but predominantly cognitive-behavioral and existential therapy.
My interests and hobbies include baking (especially homemade bread and pizza dough), sewing, knitting, and doing anything outdoors immersed in nature. I am also continually trying to improve in Spanish.
