Molly is a certified psychoanalyst, and licensed psychotherapist, specializing in movement therapy. Movement therapy is based on the empirically supported premise that body, mind and spirit are interconnected and incorporates the psychotherapeutic use of movement to further the emotional, cognitive, physical and social integration of the individual; while psychoanalysis brings awareness to the unconscious, and targets maladaptive and habitually recurrent patterns of emotion and behavior. Both disciplines aim to bring more awareness to the self, to promote healing and foster creative expression.
Molly's journey to becoming a psychotherapist stemmed initially from her experience studying and teaching Pilates. She began to see how guided movement, paired with ones breath, not only increased mind-body cohesion and awareness, but also seemed to have a therapeutic impact on her clients. This body of knowledge greatly informs her work as a movement specialist, Pilates teacher and educator. However it should be noted, that these are not psychotherapy sessions. Rather, Molly's unique background allows her to draw from different therapeutic strategies based on the needs of each clients, as opposed to a one-size-fits all approach. Molly uses her body of knowledge and training in several mind-body and holistic techniques to further enhance each session, providing a truly unique and therapeutic experience for the client.
