Brennan C. Mallonee is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Somerville, MA. She specializes in treating anxiety, depression, trauma, and questions related to spirituality. She describes what she does as "therapy with brains and heart," helping clients to integrate their thinking, feeling, physical, and spiritual sides. Many of her clients have relied heavily on their thinking selves to get through life and they find relief with learning how to better incorporate and honor their emotional self.
Brennan's work spans the everyday and the existential, with both practical and immediate approaches for day to day struggles as well as exploration of bigger questions of meaning and connection. She provides a safe space for clients to explore their spiritual side, whether that means understanding a faith tradition and how it relates to daily life, or finding meaning and purpose during difficult life transitions. She is passionate about helping clients discover their own inner wisdom to handle life's stressors, and with it, who they are, what they really want out of life, and how to live a life that is full and vibrant.
Brennan works with clients 18 and older and particularly enjoys working with young adults who wish to explore challenges related to intersecting identities. She uses an eclectic approach in her practice, incorporating CBT, Existential Therapy, Internal Family Systems (IFS), AEDP, and mindfulness practices into a holistic, down-to-earth, and warm style that comes with a dry sense of humor. Working with Brennan helps clients build confidence in their ability to navigate their lives while asking big questions and exploring the roots of the human experience.

"Brennan has a unique ability of being able to quickly assess where a client is at in his/her process and is able to connect with them in a way that they feel very understood. Clients have connected easily with her and were committed to working with her. Brennan deftly responds with both concrete suggestions for cognitive and behavioral change, as well as delving into deeper emotional content that requires incredible sensitivity and caring. I would refer clients dealing with young women’s issues, spirituality, and college adjustment to Brennan."- Jan Price, LICSW Greenbridge Counseling and Wellness • January 2017
