Dr. Michael Mangino is a clinical psychologist who specializes in individual, couples, family, and group therapy. He graduated with his doctorate in clinical psychology from Long Island University in Brookville, New York and completed his APA-accredited internship and post-doctoral fellowship at Temple University’s Tuttleman Counseling Services, at which he was then hired as both a staff psychologist and Assistant Group Therapy Coordinator. Currently, he is employed at Philadelphia Couples Therapy, where he works with individuals, couples, families, and groups from a psychodynamic and relational approach. His previous training locations include Hackensack University Medical Center, Stony Brook University, and Long Island University’s Psychological Services Center. Dr. Mangino employs a relational approach in therapy, emphasizing that the different relationships clients engage in are often the source of many psychological and physical stressors. His main goal in therapy is to work collaboratively and authentically with clients in order to develop a trusting relationship so that therapy feels safe enough to begin unpacking and reworking past and present relational dynamics. As a practitioner of group therapy, Dr. Mangino also firmly believes that being able to safely navigate difficult intra- and interpersonal dynamics within a group setting can facilitate psychological growth in a uniquely rewarding fashion.
