Professional statement

Mallory Sprague is a Licensed Social Worker who practices insight-oriented psychotherapy in New York. She has a Master's degree in clinical social work from the University of Michigan, where she also centered social advocacy and community work.

Mallory works with a wide range of issues but focuses on how anxiety and depression interact with themes of identity and personal experience. She strives to understand a person in their environment by drawing from relational therapy, multicultural approach, and systems theory in order to form an individualized approach.  Each client can expect to build a relationship in which to explore themselves, and celebrate moments of progress.

Mallory conducts remote therapy sessions for clients who reside anywhere in New York.


Message to clients

Together in therapy we will figure out what is keeping you from feeling fulfillment, and develop tools to help break down those barriers and find more contentment each day. As a clinician, I collaboratively identify a person’s inherent strengths, empowering them to enact positive changes within themselves and their relationships. My approach is person-centered, strengths-based, and trauma-informed. Curiosity, compassion, and humor enable a safe and engaging atmosphere in which to do individualized work.

Integrating various therapeutic modalities will allow our sessions to best suit you and your needs. I have worked in the U.S. and abroad with people of all ages and experiences including, but not limited to, anxiety, depression, self-doubt, substance use, and personal and inherited trauma. My worldview has been further shaped by my time as a Peace Corps Volunteer and member of the Match-e-be-nash-she-wish Band of Pottawatomi Indians. My lens is ever-growing and nonjudgmental, allowing me to bring nuance and understanding to my practice.

Client testimonials

"

I felt heard, and I felt a common ground between us. She asked questions that made me feel like she cared even though it was just an initial phone call and not even an actual session.
