I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida. I am also a Nationally Certified Counselor and a Registered Play Therapist. I have been working with adults, children, adolescents and families for about 5 years now. I have additional trainings in areas such as infant mental health, sand tray therapy, nurturing parent training and child parent relationship therapy.
I practice from a client focused way of being. and a cognitive therapy way of intervening. In addition, when possible I like to provide alternative ways of processing such as expressive arts. In conjunction to providing therapy, I have been teaching courses to college students such as Child Psychology and Psychology of Personality. I believe this experience adds to my abilities as a counselor. My focus has been in trauma since graduate school, primarily abuse, but my experiences cover an array of other difficulties.
I am passionate about helping others and strive to be a support system for those working through difficult times. I hope you choose me to be there with you through this journey.

Molly helped me be less anxious when it comes to doing therapy. She made me feel safe to talk about anything and also worked with me through understanding, realizing and even self reflecting the situations I give her. Truly thankful for her.

Molly is a great listener and really easy to talk to. She makes it feel like I’m catching up with a good friend, and she’s helped me gain new perspectives on my current challenges and practice more self-love.

Molly is one of the best therapists i’ve ever talked to, and I don’t even see her in person. She responds quickly and with helpful questions and concerns. She never makes me feel like i’m stupid or crazy for the things I say. It is so nice to simply type out all of my feelings and thoughts and then to hear her thoughts and how I should deal with these emotions. I wish I could meet her and thank her for how much she has truly helped me in such a short span of time.

Molly was the first therapist I ever had. She helped take away a lot of the fear and anxiety of having therapy for the first time. So friendly and easy to talk to. I can't recommend her enough.

She’s fantastic! Very great at listening and understanding. She’s been very supportive and has really helped with reframing my perspective on things bit by bit. I look forward to each upcoming session!

Molly is so patient when I'm trying to come up with words to explain how I'm feeling at a particular point during a session, and that's beneficial because sometimes she ends up finishing my thought for me so I'm hardly ever stuck there trying to bring my words out. It's been so taxing this year and I'm happy to have Molly around to turn to brighten things up!
