Utilizing evidenced-based interventions from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), as well as Internal Family Systems (IFS), Molly offers a unique, holistic and trauma-informed approach to therapy. Molly is passionate about helping humans heal the wounds of their past. Trauma, whether experienced in a specific traumatic event or through the challenges of daily life, is complex and all-encompassing. Molly sees her role as therapist as one of empathy, self-empowerment, and guidance. Molly works in tandem with clients to create a change process to break down barriers and heal inwardly, using mindfulness skills and insight-oriented talk therapy.
Molly received her Bachelors of Social Work (BSW) in 2015 and Masters of Social Work (MSW) in 2016, both from Loyola University Chicago. During her studies, Molly specialized in working with school-aged children and has significant experience working with students in a school setting. She has been providing clinical outpatient therapy to people of all ages since November 2017. Molly’s specialties and areas of interest include working with young people, women’s issues, trauma survivors and mindfulness. Molly enjoys yoga, reading and writing poetry as well as painting. She is passionate about social change and community activism and a lover of tacos, cats and cheesy puns.
