John Mann Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW)
John has been a licensed clinical social worker since 1980. He is licensed in both California and Florida. Over the past 39 years, he has worked with a wide variety of patient population groups including seniors, couples, and those in the LBGT community. His preference is working with those who are struggling with existential issues that may or may not be compounded by the use of alcohol and/or other drugs.
His patients are people, not psychiatric labels...The "frame" from which he works in leans towards the psychodyamic; client-centered; existential; solution oriented; and ACT (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy) perspectives. If possible, he also likes to integrate spirituality into his work- whether it be religious in nature, or 12 Step based.
People "stuck" (not "broken") with respect to their ability to cope with problems in living. His role, therefore is that of helping people to gain a better understanding of HOW they are "stuck;" perhaps how they GOT "stuck" ... and what steps are needed to get "unstuck."
We are ready to help you.
