Hello, I'm Molly
As a generalist clinician, I work with adults and people in their 20s to address maladaptive behaviors, overcome histories of trauma, and gain deeper personal insight.
I use an integrative approach that draws on humanistic, Gestalt, and psychodynamic therapies to help clients develop a sense of wholeness, congruence, and self-actualization.
I also work with children (ages 3-12) to develop a positive self-concept, sense of responsibility, and self-regulation, and decision-making skills.
I use child-centered play therapy which supports the child by creating an environment in which they can feel empowered as they learn to cope with their emotions in adaptive and socially appropriate ways. This leads to positive behavioral changes, increased self-esteem, and improved relationships.
What to expect from working with me. . .
Counseling enables people to experience a higher quality of life. I will walk alongside you, offering openness and empathy, as you explore positive personal growth. We will look to past experiences to gain insight as we focus on current concerns, allowing these insights to shape new ways of doing and thinking. The aim is for you to find a deeper sense of satisfaction, balance, purpose, and control over your life.
I specialize in the following concerns:
Depression and low motivation
Body image concerns
Children may benefit from play therapy if they exhibit the following
Aggression and acting out
Excessive anger, worry, fear or shyness
Difficulty in school
Trouble making friends
Bonding and attachment issues
Difficulty in adjusting to family changes (e.g. separation)
Grief, Trauma & Loss
Children who have experienced grief, trauma, or loss may also benefit from play therapy, even if they do not show signs of maladaptive behavior.
A little about my professional background . . .
I am a Nationally Certified Counselor and a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate at New Day in High Point, NC. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and a Master’s of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Additionally, I have formal training in Play Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy for Individuals and Couples. My clinical work experience is in college, hospital, and community settings.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship is one that is sacred and meaningful. Finding the right fit is important. Determining fit starts with a 15-minute phone call (no charge to you). During this call, you will share some about why you’re interested in counseling and what you’re hoping to get from the experience.
