Mallorie Davis

MSW, LSW

I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio and received my Master’s in Social Work from The Ohio State University. My clinical experience includes providing supportive care to families and/or individuals who need help managing their emotional and mental distress due to a medical illness, working with young adults who have a history of trauma and/or behavior disorder, and assisting individuals with a mental health and/or substance use disorder. As a therapist, I am committed to helping individuals overcome depression, anxiety, trauma, and other stressors that affect us at some time in our lives. I’m also a firm believer that healing is a collaborative effort that requires compassion and support to help individuals overcome obstacles that will allow them to move forward and thrive.

Since every individual is unique, I utilize a variety of therapeutic methods to create a tailored approach for each individual and their situation. My therapeutic approaches include Solution-Focused, Trauma-Informed, Cognitive- Behavioral, Constructive Narrative Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I also have experience in crisis intervention and de-escalation, stress management, and grief and loss.

Life challenges don’t define who you are- they are something you experience. My goal is to help you navigate through past, present, and future experiences. I am dedicated to providing a safe and judgement-free atmosphere where you can comfortably reflect and express your feelings. Let me help you to understand and re-define your experiences.

Nicole Parente

MSW, LISW-S, APHSW-C

Hello! My name is Nicole Parente (she/her). I have been a licensed Social Worker for almost 9 years. I have worked with clients experiencing many different concerns including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, grief and loss, chronic pain, sexual abuse, and trauma. I have special interest in working with people/couples who are wanting to strengthen their relationships, those working to deepen their connection to their bodies and sexuality, those experiencing loss & grief, and with clients experiencing women’s health related issues.

As your counselor I strive to create an environment that feels open, encouraging, and empowering. I like to use modalities and therapeutic techniques that work best for you. Some examples of modalities I use are journaling, mind-body techniques (like mindfulness or clinical hypnosis), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I like to encourage my clients to spend time outside of our sessions investing in their growth, meaning I might ask you to spend dedicated time intentionally working on your goals. Together we will create a plan that is uniquely designed for your needs.

I strive to be anti-oppressive in my counseling. I am committed to continuously learning how to better serve my clients, and that means I need to be a lifelong learner. I believe that part of being an anti-oppressive counselor is being an advocate for change on the community and political level. I acknowledge the impact that systemic and political oppression have on individual mental health and bring that awareness with me into sessions always.
