Mollie holds a Master’s Degree in Counseling and Student Personnel Psychology from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and a B.S. in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. For several years, Mollie was a counselor and administrator working with children, adolescents, adults, and families in the school setting. She has worked with people from a variety of cultural backgrounds and has experience supporting individuals through depression, anxiety, panic, emotional dysregulation, traumatic circumstances, life transitions, academic struggles, college & career decisions, grief, family conflict, divorce, peer relationships, and identity concerns.
Mollie believes in approaching therapy with genuine care, concern, and unconditional positive regard. She provides a space that is non-judgmental, client-centered, and she establishes a therapeutic relationship that allows individuals the freedom to be their authentic selves. Mollie believes in helping individuals realize and utilize their unique qualities and talents, and she supports clients on their journey towards self-actualization. She will work with you to establish goals and will revisit and reevaluate these goals throughout the therapeutic process.
In addition, Mollie helps clients to discover behaviors and thought patterns that no longer serve them. She works with clients to replace these unhelpful behaviors and thoughts with healthier, more productive ways of acting and thinking. Mollie also assists clients in establishing, discovering, and strengthening connections within their communities. She feels that connection to community can support positive social, emotional, and psychological well-being. During therapy, she draws from a variety of modalities and theories including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Adlerian Therapy, Humanistic Psychology, Person Centered, Solution-Focused, and Narrative Therapy.
In her spare time, Mollie enjoys yoga, hiking, exploring the Twin Cities, traveling, and spending time with her friends, family, and dogs.
