About Molly

I began my journey to this practice in 1996 when I received my Bachelor's in Social Welfare at the University of Kansas continuing on my path to receive my Master's in Social Work at Loyola University of Chicago in 2003. I've since lived in the Denver area and my hometown Kansas City before moving to the state where I've always wanted be...New Mexico! My approach/style as a therapist has evolved through working in several settings which include a homeless shelter for youth, schools, families in adoption and foster care, residential treatment, and community mental health. In 2011, I was grateful for the opportunity to develop my private practice at a community Acupuncture clinic where, in collaboration with my colleagues and enhanced training, I was able to develop a more integrative mind/body approach. 

It is my belief that each person has unique qualities and challenges that make us who we are. We all have experiences and a genetic make-up that shape our beliefs/thinking, our emotional responses, and our behaviors. It is through exploration of these experiences and acceptance of our given biological, personality traits that we develop insight and the power to change. To accomplish this goal, I integrate several different approaches and strategies into my practice to meet you where you are at. These include but are not limited to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Interpersonal Neurobiology,  Family Systems theories, and Humanistic strategies. I also utilize knowledge of holistic, alternative interventions combined with Mindfulness techniques to assist you in your growth. Most importantly, I believe that every human being has unique strengths and deserves compassion, positive regard and honesty in the therapeutic relationship.

I'm excited to be working towards the professional goal of providing Equine Therapy with a focus on healing trauma and grief in addition to traditional talk therapy. I'm doing so through self study and will be participating in an Equine Therapy certificate program in the coming months/year. Recently, I moved to Edgewood, NM where I'm working with my rescue horses, Sparky and Lady Lou, so they are prepared to do therapeutic work with humans. Currently, I am only providing services online but that will change in the near future as I look forward to providing indoor and outdoor space for clients to begin their healing journey.
