My Approach to Helping
Hello, my name is Jennifer Mally and I am a clinical counselor licensed in the states of North Carolina and Maryland with over 20 years of experience in the field of mental/behavioral health. My master's degree studies were in the realm of Clinical Psychology. I have worked with individuals possessing a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, anger management, parenting challenges, career and other life transitions, and attention-deficit hyperactivity (ADHD). I also helped many people who have experienced trauma or emotional abuse, as well as individuals suffering from psychosis. I have worked with low to higher-functioning individuals, and in a variety of work settings. I consider myself culturally sensitive, versatile, and experienced in working with clients of varying demographics.
My counseling style is empathetic, nonjudgemental, and interactive. I believe in treating people with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach consists of cognitive behavioral, humanistic, and psychodynamic orientations. I often incorporate aspects of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) (to include concepts such as Mindfulness) and will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage and dedication to self to take the steps toward a more fulfilling life. I am here to support, empower, and guide you toward that more positive and joyful life experience.
I look forward to working with you!
