Therapist Molly Rafferty Photo

About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor in Texas with over 28 years of experience working as a counselor in a variety of settings. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, grief, and adjusting to transitions in life. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I am trained in equine assisted psychotherapy (EAP) and while we will not have the luxury of having horses in the session, I can incorporate many of those principles in a telehealth session.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines trauma-informed, somatic and attachment styles to promote growth and healing. I believe that we heal through reparative, relational experiences. I incorporate neurobiology in the sessions and discuss how the brain is affected when we experience trauma at an early age or later in life. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Molly has made me feel comfortable sharing from our first visit. I really feel I have a touchstone now, someone to listen and help me process tough things. She's given me tools to keep my calm through a variety of anxiety issues, and helped me gain confidence through a pretty tough time. I am grateful.

I had a long list of things I wanted to work on with Molly and within the first session she identified something not on the list that is actually the root issue of a lot of things. I felt very safe and comfortable to tell her anything very early on.

We've only had two sessions for far, but I already feel like I've come a long way on my healing journey and that has almost everything to do with Molly's listening ability and science based approach to healing.

I have only had one session with Miss Molly but even that has had a profound affect on my life and my situation as a whole. I hope to be able to continue with her for as long as possible and continue to form a bond that will last a lifetime and lead to a complete healing of myself.
