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!

I’ve never had a therapist that truly compares to Dr. Mallett. She listens, she’s direct when she needs to be. She’s very grounded yet extremely wise. I am so thankful BetterHelp paired me with her.

The difference in my life this year, thanks to Dr. Mallett’s guidance, is more than I dreamed of. Great work.
Dr Tracy has been very helpful I enjoy all the outlooks she sends me and the positive messages and readings she sends me I am very great full for her work.
Dr. Mallett makes me feel very comfortable opening up and sharing all my thoughts. She is very easy to talk and has a great way of cutting through all the things I say and asking a question that gets to the point of the issue.
Dr. Mallett has been a very big help in my life!
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.
Dr. Mallett has been very positive in our interactions and helpful in directing me to solve the problems and issues I've been going through.
I feel like Dr Mallett is exactly the kind of therapist I needed!
She is informative and caring and kind and supportive! I feel better about things already
Dr. Mallet is great! She really helps you break down what is really going on and asks good questions that really have helped me to open up. She is quick to respond and really utilizes all the tools that BetterHelp offers.
It’s great to have therapist that listens to you and is able to help you be more positive about your life. I truly look forward to our weekly sessions.
Gives excellent advice
I think Dr. mail it is awesome as far as listening in her insight with her patients she’s good at communication and checking to see what the patient needs are I would like to see a structured care plan I’m not certain if that’ll help offers that and I would like to tackle one issue at the time I think I’m trying to tackle too many issues at the same time and I would like more guidance.Overall Dr. mallet is a good doctor
I am extremely appreciative of Dr. Mallett and her skills! I’ve struggled in the past with feeling invalidated by previous therapists but, Dr. Mallett truly makes me feel heard and understood.
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.
Dr. Mallett is an experienced professional with valuable counseling wisdom. I appreciate her guidance and counsel.
My counselor is attentive, listens to me, and provides many different ways of tackling my issues right now. I no longer overwhelmed as I know I have someone who's got my back and understands me. I also do not feel alone as I can share my concerns and emotions with her. Thank you, Dr. Mallett!
Dr. Mallett responds quickly and takes the time to understand you and your needs.
Dr. Mallet has been super helpful. She is a good listener and is ready to dive in to whatever I bring to the table. And even sends me helpful articles and thoughts through out the week. I feel like she does a good job at honoring our time together and is fully present. I highly recommend scheduling a session with her!
I am grateful for our time together. She has helped me make connections and realizations that my brain would have fought off. She is teaching me how to stand up for my heart and myself.
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 am so grateful to Dr. Mallett. She has been very helpful to me.
Great doc helping me a lot
great expertise !
Dr. Mallet is an excellent counselor!! So thankful I was teamed up 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.
Dr. Mallet is amazing. She offers many years of experience that speaks for itself. You will not be disappointed!
Dr. Mallet is a great therapist- she listens well and understands and has very helpful feedback and suggestions. I have seen several therapists over the years, and she's by far the most helpful. Highly recommend!
Dr. Mallett provides a safe environment for me to express my concerns. She offers great advice as well as different perspectives for me to understand how to make my relationship with myself as well as with my partner better.
Dr Mallett is well qualified and versed in dealing with setting boundaries and helping with difficult family dynamics.
