Under Clinical Supervision

Mallory Hallstead, Licensed Master Social Worker, 105937 is practicing under the supervision of Andy Lapides (New York, LCSW, 77727) at Resilience Lab.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I'm a grounded therapist who is curious about my clients' experiences and healing. I show up to undo aloneness, be present in the difficult moments of processing pain, and celebrate successes. Addressing stressors is important, but so is naming what’s going well. I will encourage you to get to know your bright spots and support you in welcoming more peace and joy into your life.

What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

I saw my loved ones participating in therapy and was inspired by their growth. I thought, "What a wonderful and worthwhile way to spend my day- witnessing and accompanying people through their healing process." When my clients conclude therapy with me, I want them to have a sense of relief and control over their symptoms, love and compassion for themselves, and the exact tools they need to tackle obstacles.

What are your biggest strengths as a therapist?

Clients have told me that I am adept at: - Teaching clients skills that are effective in managing their symptoms, - Making clients feel comfortable and safe (especially if they have never engaged in therapy before), and - Picking up on the underlying root of what the client is struggling with.

Work History

I have experience working with a spectrum of young people, from infants and their families to emerging adults. I treated adolescents with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, focusing on emotional regulation, skills building, and sensorimotor processing. I regularly addressed issues like healthy sexual development/behavior, family dynamics, substance use, and trauma. I also have experience working as a crisis sexual assault advocate at local hospitals. I’m now a proud member of the Resilience Lab mental health collective. Resilience Lab is the largest community of clinicians working collaboratively to produce better outcomes and improve mental health access.
