Mandy Persaud is a licensed marriage and family therapist and certified facilitator for both The Daring Way and Dare to Lead through the Brené Brown Education and Research Group (BBEARG). She is a native Floridian and a graduate of Loma Linda University in Southern California.
In addition to working with individuals in private practice, Mandy has more than 20 years of experience in leadership development and organizational culture and has provided international leadership coaching, consultation and training for healthcare entities throughout the U.S., and in Hong Kong, Malaysia, and the Caribbean.
Mandy is exceptionally skilled at helping individuals experience the courage, strength, and resiliency needed to navigate life’s many transitions. Transitions-such as forming, ending, and maintaining relationships; entering a new phase of life or career; welcoming a new addition to the family; and grieving personal losses-can lead to anxiety, fear, and confusion. The good news, however, is that when these life transitions are faced mindfully and with intention, they can hold the potential for powerful personal transformation.
Of particular focus for Mandy is infertility and assisted conceptions. She and her husband have personally traveled the road of infertility, including endometriosis, diminished ovarian reserve, and multiple failed IVFs, and have completed their family via egg donation. This personal experience, coupled with her clinical expertise, makes her both a skilled and empathetic therapist for individuals and couples who are facing the challenges of building a family.

Individual Therapy/Transformational Coaching Sessions: $125
Assisted Conception Mental Health Assessment Sessions $155
