About Me

Hello! I am a licensed psychologist, licensed marriage and family therapist, and an international parenting, divorce, and coparenting coach. I have been working with single adults, couples, children and families for over 20 years. I have extensive experience working with individuals who have problems with self-worth, who have experienced trauma, and with families in conflict. I am Level II trained in the Gottman Method, and utilize this extensively with couples. My clients are learning to master such issues as overcoming depression; trauma recovery; anxiety reduction; managing existential and identity issues, reducing stress, and controlling anger. I have counseled in mental health, addiction treatment, and criminal justice settings. Currently, I have a private practice in south Florida (www.family-options.com), where I supervise master's level mental health counseling and psychology trainees. I also teach graduate-level courses in ethics, disaster and trauma response, abnormal behavior, community counseling, and criminal behavior, and I mentor graduate dissertation students in forensic psychology.

I have worked with individuals who are struggling with a wide range of concerns, including such things as managing anxiety, stress and depression; estrangement from family; career changes; marital infidelity; recovery from divorce; marital communication difficulties; and parenting challenges. I have extensive experience working with individuals who have problems with self-worth, who have experienced trauma, and with families in conflict.

Through our interactions, I hope that you will find a safe place where we can explore your concerns and develop a plan that will have you actively pursuing your goals and living the life you want. Together, we can undo false belief systems and unhealthy habits.

My therapeutic style is strengths-based, meaning that I will work with you to identify your strengths and the strategies that have worked well for you in the past, and nurture those skills to their highest potential. I am committed to getting to know you as an individual, and working hard to earn your trust and discover exactly what changes you hope to make in your life. You are the expert in your own life and in what you need, and the pace in which you would like to go, and it's my honor to adapt my counseling style to your needs and help you create the life that you want. I may "push" you out of your comfort zone at times in order to challenge you to meet the goals you have set for yourself, but I will provide you with a safe environment and will always be empathetic and patient and put you first.

I strive to support, encourage, educate, and empower my clients. I encourage lots of feedback from my clients, and I am very open to constructive criticism, because I want this process to be helpful and useful for you. Together, we will create an individualized treatment plan that empowers you to overcome obstacles and create specific, achievable tasks that will put you on the a solid path to meet your goals. Therapy is an investment in time, money and emotional energy, and I look forward to joining you in helping to ensure that your investment pays off!

Hello,
I would like to give a new review for Dr Tracy Mallett. I was very afraid of therapy in the beginning. And I was reluctant to have a positive attitude. But I'm so glad I've pushed through that, with the help of Dr Tracy.
She is actually a very kind and attentive counselor. She spends a lot of time and energy with her clients. She is direct and brings a lot of knowledge to our talks.
I very much appreciate her and our time together.

Written by A.S. on Apr 18, 2021 after therapy with Tracy for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, coaching, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Dr. Mallet offers a lot in terms of communication. It is the key that I want, to be able to see someone is talking back to me, responding to how I feel. I think, I like to feel as though my words are heard, I'm not looking to be understood, but that, what I'm saying is not falling under deaf ears. I understand that I am stubborn, and things take a while to sink in, but the fact I am being heard, makes a huge difference in continuing to interact with her.

I really enjoy working with Dr. Tracy. She is the first therapist I've ever worked with and I was nervous that I may not find a therapist that I feel comfortable with right away - but I couldn't be happier or feel better about finding someone who listens to me and offers the help and understanding she provides. I'm very grateful for her!

Dr. Mallett is the first therapist I’ve felt like I can really open up to and understands the type of feedback I need to be successful. The only thing I would change is I’d like her to respond a little more quickly at times, but I’m very happy with the progress I’ve made with her

I have just recently started seeing Dr. Mallett, only 4 or 5 sessions. She has me invested more than any other therapist I have ever been too. She works around your schedule and with you to find the best time. She learns you and tweaks sessions. I have not only noticed a change in the few sessions we have had, my friends and family do as well.
