Mental Health Counselor - Boston
Henry Mallett is a Mental Health Counselor within Counseling Services at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS). Utilizing a psychodynamic and relational approach to therapy, Mallett is passionate about working with young adults as they navigate critical periods of identify formation.
After completing his bachelor’s degree in communication arts, he spent several years working in television production in New York City. His interest in mental health and community service led Mallett back to Boston, where he worked at The Walker School and Home, a residential treatment center for youth and adolescents. There, he learned that being a consistent, warm, and safe adult was critical to forming meaningful connections with the school’s clients. Inspired by that experience, Mallett earned his Master of Social Work (MSW) from Smith College. During his education, he trained in the emergency department and outpatient clinic at Boston Children’s Hospital. Upon graduation, Mallett worked in the inpatient psychiatry unit at McLean Hospital in Belmont, MA, where he also received training in Mentalization Based Treatment. Mallett is also a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Psychoanalysis Stechler Fellowship for Child and Adolescent Therapy.
Mallett enjoys meeting with students and learning about their varied cultures, backgrounds, and identities. Most of all, he is excited to watch his MCPHS students become healthcare leaders. In his free time, Mallett enjoys hiking and camping with his wife and their dog, Woodman. He is also an avid skier, loyal Dave Matthews Band fan, and a regular 98.5 The Sports Hub radio caller.
