Guided by her belief that every individual deserves the opportunity to live a healthy, meaningful, and productive life, Molly has served as a mental health clinician, researcher, and advocate for the past seven years.    She is passionate about bringing holistic healing to individuals experiencing  psychosocial  and emotional distress and brings an integrative interpersonal approach to her work.

Molly received her Masters in Social Work from the University of Washington and completed her Yoga teacher training at the Integral Yoga Academy.  She has worked for over six years in the forefront of academic research, investigating the efficacy of multiple psychotherapeutic interventions, including MBCT, IPT, and CBT. Molly’s experience in supporting folks during crisis spans the breadth of her insatiable curiosity and unrelenting passion.  She is adept at working with individuals across the lifespan, with special attention to those who have experienced psychological distress and trauma. Such populations include: individuals experiencing homelessness, youth in foster care, low-income pregnant women and their families, and individuals living with end stage renal disease.

Molly’s quest to understand the nuanced connection between psychological, biological and sociological health, coupled with her passion for supporting individuals during times of distress has fueled her journey.  When she is not attempting to integrate her vast experience and knowledge into a comprehensive explanation of the human experience, you can find Molly somewhere in the mountains with friends and her yellow lab, Kramer.

Molly draws upon her diverse experiences and interests to inform her work.  As an avid reader Molly believes in the transformative power of reclaiming one’s own narrative. As a yogini, she believes in the power of living one’s embodied truth.  As a meditator, she believes in the power of cultivating presence and radical self acceptance. As a human, she understands the struggle is real.
