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!

I am very grateful for Molly. I’ve had a few sessions with her and I can tell that she is extremely knowledgeable and wise.
