Having a safe place to acknowledge and process how we feel seems to be a powerful tool for health and wellness. We are all impacted by brokenness and our experiences shape the way that we handle life and relationships. I hope to be someone who can come alongside and partner with you for a piece of your journey. It is important to me that those I am working with are reminded that they matter and have dignity. Using therapeutic techniques, I hope to empower you toward your personal growth and wellness goals.

After obtaining her bachelors degree, Mallory gained experience working with adolescents and families during her work in youth ministry. She also worked closely with college age to young professional and adult leaders. She was the Women's Director for KLIFE Ministries before she transitioned to the Student Coordinator for Faithbridge Church in Jacksonville, Florida. An influential mission trip stirred Mallory's passion for survivors of trauma and led her to begin pursuing counseling as a profession. Mallory moved to Dallas two years ago and is currently a student at Dallas Theological Seminary pursuing her Masters in Counseling.

Mallory enjoys coffee and conversation with friends. She loves singing and listening to music. Currently a student, she spends a lot of time studying with books on theology or psychology.
