About me

I am a licensed social worker in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Maine who has been working with clients who face chronic illness, loss, and other life changes. I love being a social worker because it allows me to meet so many different kinds of people everywhere and learn new perspectives. My style mainly focuses on identifying your already existing strengths and resources to work toward your goals and objectives. We may also work on basic education about mental health and different coping strategies for symptom management. I would love to meet you, hear about your experiences, and find solutions together.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Molly O'Brien. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Molly has been a wonderful resource for me as I’ve navigated professional, personal, and romantic stressors. During our first session, I told Molly that other therapists in the past had done little to hold me accountable, and that was a priority for me. Molly has not only met my expectation for therapy, but she’s exceeded it by meeting me where I’m at during each session and readily pivoting to address every new concern as they arise. She expects the unexpected which is incredibly helpful for those of us with various, dynamic needs. Molly has also made herself available to me despite the fact that I have an erratic work/life schedule.

I strongly recommend working with Molly… but maybe I shouldn’t so she always remains available to me ;)
