Mallory Rahman, LMSW
Mallory is a native New Yorker, hailing from Long Island and Queens. She attended Binghamton University for an undergraduate degree in Psychology then attended the CUNY Hunter College Silberman School of Social Work for her MSW.
Mallory has experience working in non-profit agencies, specifically working in the field of alternatives to incarceration. She also has past experience working in child welfare and in a high school setting. She has experience providing in-home therapy for court-involved individuals and families at a non-profit agency committed to providing alternatives to incarceration. Malloy has experience supporting clients through issues of trauma, shame, relational ruptures, grief, and emotional management.
Mallory utilizes a strengths-based and collaborative approach with clients. She incorporates narrative therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mindfulness techniques. She is a firm believer that all feelings and behavior make sense if you understand the context of people’s experiences and environments. Mallory approaches each client with compassionate curiosity, supporting them in understanding their emotions and behaviors, and ultimately helping them feel more in control of their lives.
Mallory is attuned to issues of intersectionality and the ways in which systemic factors, such as structural racism and socioeconomic inequality, impact mental health. She is committed to ensuring therapy is an affirming and non-oppressive space where clients of all genders, sexual orientations, faiths, and ethnicities can show up authentically.
Some of Mallory’s clinical interests include learning how to effectively support those who are experiencing continuous traumatic stress and addressing trauma experiences that do not fit neatly into a PTSD diagnosis.
Mallory is a second-generation Filipinan-American and a proud member of the Asian American community. Most of her time is spent hanging out with her toddler twins and spending time with their big Filipino and Bengali extended families. Mallory also loves to read and watch true crime documentaries when she gets a moment. Her self-care consists of hiking, writing, practicing mindful breathing, and binge-watching the Office.
While Mallory currently lives on Long Island, Queens was her home for most of her 20s and she still has intense nostalgia for the food, diversity, and community there. Mallory loves how every neighborhood throughout the city offers something different. There’s no place like New York.
