About me

Hello! Welcome to Better Help!
I am a Clinical Social Worker, licensed in the state of Delaware with over 12 years of clinical experience working with children/adolescents, adults, families, and couples . I am glad you are here. I realize the courage and bravery it took to take the first step in searching for a therapist. I applaud you for getting to this point!

Here is a little about me. Originally from Connecticut, I received my BS in Early Childhood and Special Education from the University of Delaware. Soon after, I received my Masters of Social Work from Louisiana State University. I have worked as a school counselor and in therapeutic settings as well. I have assisted individuals, couples and families with a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, divorce, bereavement, educational difficulties, anger management and parenting challenges. I have also helped clients facing some of life's most difficult transitions. If you are looking for a therapist who is compassionate, empathetic, an excellent listener and motivated to assist you in your journey of healing and change, then I may be your person. Finding a therapist who fits your needs is so very important and building that relationship of trust and respect is vital in the therapeutic process.

My approach to therapy is client centered. YOU are your own expert. I approach every client with warmth, respect and open communication. Each client is unique and faces challenges differently. My job as your therapist is to help you discover your own strengths, as we all have them! WE can work together to achieve your goals through behavior therapy, CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), motivational interviewing, Narrative Therapy and Solution Focused treatments. As your therapist my role is to guide you, support you, cheer for your accomplishments and help you work through your toughest times. In my years of experience, I often find that it helps clients to know that I have had my own personal struggles and life challenges and I bring those experiences with me when helping others. We all don't have the same struggles, but it does help to know that there are ups and downs in life and getting through them is challenging, but we can overcome them!

Just by coming to this site, you have made the first step in making changes in your life. If you are ready to take the next step, then please reach out. I am here to empower you and help you make the changes that YOU are seeking in your life. I look forward to working with you.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Mallory Ackemann. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

If you’re looking for someone reliable, someone who can easily relate, someone willing to listen and understand, someone with a great sense of humor and a high level of humanity; you’ve found your person! Mallory is beyond amazing. There aren’t enough words to describe her high caliber of character. Mallory is patient and kind but real and raw, in perfect unison. She has made me feel comfortable with being vulnerable and honest with myself within the first week of sessions. She has opened mental doors that I didn’t think I could even see. In a short amount of time I saw my personal growth. After almost a year, I feel as though I am equipped with the proper tools to conquer anything set before me. Mallory is the epitome of a phenomenal therapist. If you want the best, stop here for a breath! Fresh air and a clear mind are the only baggage you’ll leave Mallory’s place with✨

Mallory is the best therapist I have ever had! She is so kind and understanding and has so much expertise in so many areas!

Mallory is so great, she’s good at listening and then asking questions to dive deeper into something or find the reason behind it. She’s very accessible and easy to communicate with.

Mallory has been an incredibly professional and caring therapist and helped me through some incredibly difficult times. She is very flexible and empathetic while always able to challenge me (in a good way). I can’t say enough about her.

Our time together is effecient and effective/helpful. But also, she responds quickly to back and forth texts. It's almost like a journal. It's really nice to have the option of both speaking and writing communications

Mallory is great! I always look forward to our sessions - I feel heard, supported, and understood. Her empathy makes a huge difference in my everyday life. She knows me, my experiences, my struggles, and what helps. I am super grateful to have her in my corner!
