Mollie’s work is rooted in the belief that transformation is possible for all of us. She believes in honoring the strategies we have used to survive, and the strengths each client brings into the room. She recognizes the interplay between the world around us and the world within us, the role of oppression and marginalization in creating suffering, and each person’s capacity for incredible resiliency.
Mollie appreciates the courage it often takes to come to therapy, and is honored to be a part of each person’s journey toward wellbeing. She strives to offer a compassionate and collaborative space to build a trusting therapeutic relationship.
As a therapist, she is curious about the ways the past informs the present and shapes relationships throughout our lives. She is informed by psychodynamic theory, relational-cultural therapy, DBT, mindfulness, and somatic frameworks, and tailors her approach to the individual.
Areas of special interest include: attachment and relationship, disordered eating, personality structure, and trauma.
Mollie is a graduate student at Smith School of Social Work. She practices at the Catalyst Somatics and Psychotherapy location of Carolina Partners in Mental HealthCare, PLLC. She is currently receiving clinical supervision from J. Louise Newton, MSW, LCSW, SEP, and is credentialed to provide free psychotherapy on site.
