Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
- Helen Keller
Welcome to the practice of Hope Malone, M.A., LMHC
As a child, adolescent, and family specialist in NYC, I view all people as unique individuals, and believe that one size does not fit all. My approach to psychotherapy is based on my experience working with children, teens, and adults in mental health facilities, schools, and private practice settings in New York City. I use an integrative approach to therapy. Meaning, I am trained to use a variety of techniques during psychotherapy to help customize your therapeutic experience. My direct, compassionate, and challenging approach urges children and adults alike to explore how they view the world, learn to tolerate thoughts and emotions more effectively while using their innate coping mechanisms to work towards building flexibility. This technique allows clients to uncover their strengths and increase their sense of hope in a safe and comfortable enviornment; leading to healthier, happier lives.

Child and Adolescent Therapy
My goal is to provide your children, adolescents and
young adults with the skills and support to achieve emotional health, and wellness. As your child's therapist, I will build upon the skills that your family already possess to cope with various challenges including: attention disorders, learning difficulties, behavioral issues, autism spectrum disorders and issues of daily living.
I believe that success in an academic environment begins with a strong home-school link. My experience working in both public and private school settings has educated me to be an advocate for children to get the assistance and support that they need to be successful in school and various social settings. As your therapist, I will be able to offer you the skills and support to navigate the NYC school system and beyond.
Raising children in NYC (& its surrounding area) can be overwhelming. Children and adults alike have packed academic, work, and social calendars. Many of us struggle with how to makes the most of our time together. As your family's therapist, I will work to support the needs of your family by strengthening your parental skills and expanding your toolbox to include a new set of skills.
