Melech Mann, LISW, EMDR, NT
As a young counselor working with children from Israel, I saw firsthand what trauma can do. I really wanted to help them.
Starting my journey with the typical idealism of an aspiring therapist, I picked up a Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work from Wurzweiller school of Social Work, garnered two social work licenses in two continents, and worked for multiple public and private agencies in two countries. I wasn't fulfilled.
After almost 10 years working in the field, I was in a real dilemma.
I had not come across any therapy modality that actually healed trauma, chronic anxiety or powerful stress! All I learned were ways to cope with it.
By then, I already had a large family, many responsibilities and no time to go to school and learn another trade.
I was considering dropping the whole field of mental health and pursuing something else which my heart wasn’t into.
I was anxious and stressed…and here I am, supposed to be the therapist…..
Well, I can certainly say I learned a thing or two about what frustrated and hard-working people are experiencing when they’ve given it their all and are not where they want to be! As if on cue, a friend of mine introduced me to EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). I was immediately skyrocketed to a whole new dimension of therapy disciplines that actually, well… WORK!!!
Close to 100 (satisfied) clients later and my very own practice, I am proud to continue my tradition of providing the type of stuff which really works and the clarity that comes with it.
My hobbies are exercising, reading, playing with my children and learning about Abe Lincoln, as well as publicly impersonating his character (to the dismay of my wife and children :).
I am a certified clinical social worker, independently licensed in Ohio and Israel.
I am trained in EMDR, Narrative Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy.
