Mandy Zoffness

Mandy is a proud mom to three daughters Hayden (2012), Ayla (2016) and Harper (2019), as well as a Bernedoodle puppy named Brodie. Mandy and her husband Ben both grew up in Mamaroneck, where they currently reside. They met in High School, later reconnected and have been married since 2009. Mandy is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and sees clients privately at a private practice, Clear Mind Psychology. Mandy works with children, adolescents and adults, but particularly enjoys supporting mom's on their motherhood journey by providing perinatal counseling services. When Mandy is not shuttling her children to and from activities and attempting to train their puppy, she enjoys relaxing on the beach, yoga, evening bike rides with her ten year old, a good book, a Netflix series with her husband and a dirty martini (extra dirty!).
